For example their may be a lot of Nicoles in your school but not that many in your camp or visa versa. Also no one says my name incorrectly or spells it incorrectly and usually when someone dos't know how to pronounce or spell their name, they get annoyed. Im glad I have my name! I think it goes really well with my last name too! It also has so many nicknames which is really usful if a "Nicole" dosnt like their name they can shorten it to Nikki or Coley or anything however the name Ava cant (but i love the name ava its really pretty)So Nicole is a great name in my opinion!!"

  • "I am a Nicole and the great thing about it is that people do not pronounce my name incorrectly because people are familiar with the name. However, it is not so common that I have had several Nicoles in my classes. I can only think of one class where I had another Nicole and I went by "Nikki" instead. Nicole allows for choices since it can be shortened to Cole, Nic, Nikki, etc. Much better for a child who isn't 100% happy with a name like Sarah since it can be adapted later on to better fit the individual."

I am 35/born in the 70s & it was just starting to get popular then. I am also known as Nici but not as much as when I was a kid. My Dad picked this nickname & spelled it N-I-C-I on a poster that said "Welcome home Mommy & Nici" when they brought me home from the hospital when I was born so it stuck."

I go by "Nicky" with my family, but now that I am 26, married and working, I think "Nicole" is more professional. I go by "Nick" or "Nic" or "Nikki" or "Nicky" mainly to my family and friends.

I thought her name was so delicate and pretty, while being contemporary and unique as well. Little did I know that in ten years it would be among the most common of new baby girls' names! Had I known this, I might have chosen a different name for her, but I still do love it, and so does my daughter." Aug. 11, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "I hate the name Nicole. It is my birth name, though I am getting my name legally changed to Gina, because it suits me more. Everybody who knows the story of my name change says "You ARE a Gina! I can't even SEE you as a Nicole." I hate whenever someone pronounces it "Ni-KOHL," because it sounds really harsh." Aug. 5, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Nicole and I'm so in love with it that I'm giving it a thumbs DOWN...because like the poster commented on May 2, 2011, NO ONE non-French can pronounce it the real, French way like it's supposed to sound! No wonder not all love this name...if it was only pronounced the right way! Too bad the French didn't teach us Americans how to say this elegant French name! I'm surprise they even let non-French people borrow it lol. I did painful research on this name...did you know there are a few places in France with this name? Did you know I found over 20 rues (or streets) that are named with that name? Rue Nicole, or Rue Pierre Nicole....or, Rue de Nicole! Amazing how we can't even pronounce it correctly! No wonder why the French don't like jk! I love my name! I love French names! I would't trade my name for another! It's mine forever...something I truly own. It's a luxury...almost! Nicole" Jul. 5, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My birthname is Nicole, I'm 23 now. When I was in public school I never had a school year go by where I didn't have at least 2 classes that had at least two other Nicole's in them. It's never felt like it suited me, and whenever anyone's called me "Nicole" it never feels like they're talking to me. I don't like the way it sounds, because it can be difficult to tell when someone says it whether or not their irritated. The original name is Greek, but there are versions of it in French, and actually in Irish Gaelic too. In Gaelic in means "over comer", which I've had to do a lot of. Now I intend to legally and permanently discard the name in favor of a different name that holds it's roots in my grandmother's homeland of Ireland. It suits me much better than Nicole and it feels like me. Nicole is a good name for some women, and I have never been one of them." Oct. 17, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have always thought Nicole was a strange name. I cheer, and being 11 and 5'5, I'm a back. My flyer's name is Nicole, and she gets on my nerves quicker than anything. I guess that's why I don't like most Nicoles! no offense intended :)" Nov. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Nicole Mary and I hate it because its so common. I wish I had something that was different and a little more classic. People constantly spell my name with a "h" and its always getting shortened to Nic or Nikki which I hate. Overall, pick a better name for your little one." Aug. 7, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in the 80's and I've met too many Nicoles to be proud that it's my name as well. Growing up, I had a hard time playing the name game as the name Nicole doesn't have two distinct syllables. I am not fond of the common nick names Nick or Nikki, but I do go by the name 'Nix' which I am far more fond of." Jan. 27, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like the name Nicole - although it is a bit over-used as a middle name (I've met a few people with it as a first name but not many). What I don't like is when parents spell the name differently to make it seem more unique. And this isn't just for the name Nicole but for a lot of old-fashioned names. I've never seen the point in it since it's not like changing one letter or adding a letter is going to make it unique. It just makes the parents look shallow and idiotic and teaches their kid that it's alright to just substitute letters with any word they want to make it 'unique'. Just leave it as is or choose a differemt , more "unique name" - like Sharquesha ;)" Jul. 31, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • ""NICOLE" is the FRENCH spelling of the name and is hardly ever pronounced correctly. The French pronunciation should be "NEE - CULL" (rhymes with "SEA-GULL"). The short "i" and "KOHL" pronunciation is NOT French. The ITALIAN version is spelled "NICOLA" and pronounced "NEE-KO-LA. Nicole Kidman uses the pronunciation "NIC-OLE" , but her name is really spelled the FRENCH way and should really be pronounced the FRENCH way. I was given the FRENCH name, but hardly anyone (unless French!) can even pronounce it correctly. What a shame that the FRENCH pronunciation is almost LOST now... especially in the USA. GOD BLESS !"

  • "There were 4 other Nicole's in my fourth grade class. I had to go by "Nicole [first two letters of my last name]". It was tragic at the time. Such is being a Nicole and born in the 80s. I like that my name transitions well from a kid to an adult without sounding goofy.
