  • "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!)"
