"I'm having a baby girl and I wa shrinking about calling her Nicola, spelt without the h and pronounced Ni-co-lah" Mar. 10, 2018:
"I love being Nicola, it?s a name with so many variations.
I love that different people call me different versions, Nicola (husband & mother), Nik (my colleagues and more recent friends), Nicky/Nikki (old school friend), Nicole (my french friend) and Nico (my ex and his family ? to differentiate from a Nicola and a Nicky already in their family). Younger children seem to struggle with the pronunciation so call me Nick-A, Nic-la or Nic-lar, which usually sticks as they grow up. One of my nephew really struggled with it and still calls me Aunty Ner-la even though he can pronounce it correctly now.
I?m happy with it, like having dozens of different nicknames (LOL!)" Apr. 3, 2017:
"I am a 1974 Nicola born on new years day so was called after St Nicholas, I hate the spelling with a H, so glad my parents never put that in, I hate Nicky, dont mind Nic as my family call me, but I quite like my name i have give my 6 children different names and hope the are never in classes with another child with the same name but someone who lives round the corner from me decided she needed to call her child after my daughter Talia only she spelt it Talliah and now they are in a class together :(" Aug. 5, 2016:

We both prefer our way of spelling Nicola/Nichola but we both love a name. Although its taken us ages to find a coca cola bottle with our name on, given that cola is actually in our name." Aug. 20, 2014:
"I'm Nicolla, I love my name because in the US, you don't run into Nicolla's. I'm 45 and I've yet to meet another Nicolla (Nicola) in person and I love the fact that I haven't. I encouraged my children to give their kids uncommon names as well." May. 21, 2014:
