  • "My name is Nikita. My family, which is Indian, like me, pronounce it NikiTHa AND NikiTa. I really like both ways. I have never been called Kita always Niki, Niku and Nikia by my parents. I really LOVE my name, but it really annoys me when people call me Nicitia or spell my name wrong. They mostly spell it incorrectly like Nikkita, Niketa, Nikitta, Nikitha, Nakita, once someone spelled it Naikkettia! That was the worst! I rarely meet others with the same name. I love the Earth, and coincidentally, my name means Earth in Sanskrit. I rarely meet others with the same name, and it really is a treat when I do. My family is Indian, and I am the first person EVER in our family to be named Nikita. The name is NOT Russian,at ALL. I think the Russians just liked the name, and that's totally fine. I like the name Erin, my friend's Mexican and named this, but I think it's originally French. In short, I LOVE my name, and my experience with this name is AMAZING!"
