  • "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.

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
