"I love having the name Nikki. It sounds really sporty and not many people have 'Nikki', many have Nicole. I especially hate it when people call me Nicole and I hate the nickname for Nicole as Nikki, can't it be Nik." Jun. 5, 2015:
"My name is Nikki, but I hate the fact that I'm also having to embrace when people spell it every other way than 'Nikki' or they refer to me as Nicole. Personally I wouldn't name a kid that, but it is okay if you're able to take people spelling/referring to you as anything they see fit." Oct. 22, 2014:
"my name is nikki, and i love it but i hate how everyone named nicole or nicolete or whatever always go by nikki. it makes everything so confusing. i never meant a plain old nikki before guess im not as speacial as i thought. ):" Jun. 7, 2011:
"My name is Nikki, but my real name is Nicole. My mom used to love the nickname but when I insisted that I would change my real name to Nikki when I turned 18, she began calling me Nicole more often and I hate it. I have never met another "Nikki" and if I had I am sure it wouldn't be spelled like mine. Many times my teachers call me Nicole. I've gotten used to the switch, but I am kind of rebellious and I will probably change my real name to Nikki anyway." Jan. 6, 2011:

"My name is Nikki. I didn't like the name when I was a kid because it was a very common nickname for lots of other names, so there were always several "Nikki's in the area. Often times, people assumed my name was Nicole and called me nicole quite often, so I learn to answer to both. As an adult, I like it but people still ask me what my real name is." Aug. 10, 2006:
"My given name is Nikki and while I'd say I like it, my two problems with it are 1. everyone assumes my given name is Nicole and 2. it gets misspelled (Nicky, Nickie, etc) or misunderstood (Vikki, Mikki, etc) ALL the time! Ugh! But overall it's a nice name - I've only met a couple of others in my life :)" Jun. 20, 2006:
"My names Nikki, and I always thought it was pretty rare, but now all the time im meeting people with the same name and even more strangely the same spelling. Its a bit too modern sounding for my liking." Jul. 28, 2005:
