Is this really a 'naughty boy' name?

Nikos (Nikolaos)

I'm not sure I believe in such a tag, but of course names create an impression on people.
I remember a thread a while back on here where someone, maybe a teacher, said that every boy she'd met with the name was a naughty one.

Wasn't on my list for imminent DC until now but it just keeps popping into my head and won't go away. He'd be addressed as Niko (Greek grammar blah blah) and it sounds very sweet to me, but also could suit him through the ages too. Any thoughts?

Hilariously my phone keeps changing it to 'Nokia' - now that I would veto!

Lovely name, if you are happy to be asked "Oh, have you got Greek family?" all the time smile

And if they're not Nick they're George (if we're going with stereotypes) a la George Michael (Georgios Kyriacos Panagiòtou).

HoneyandRum To add to the stereotype, ex boyfriend Nick's brother was Georgios!

I've only known one Niko - he wasn't the best behaved or most even-tempered child in the class but he was lovely!

I know of two, both teens, one a bit cheeky, the other full on bad boy.

I think the article by the teacher said that boys called Konor with a K were a handful.

It's nice, but v v popular in Greece. He'll be one of about 10 at school.

No, not a naughty boy name, prefer Nicos though with a C.
