Hi what do you think of Nick for a boy is it a bit fuddy-duddy?
How about Nico?
Which do you prefer out of these and Finn?

Nicholas or Nico, nick name Nick, I like.

LineRunner Fri 10-Jul-15 11:30:35

Nicolas or Nick or Nico are nice.

I love Nick. I did my school work experience in a Reception class and a boy there was called Nick. He was so cute. Nicholas is more fuddy duddy than just Nick or Nico.
I like Finn, it's my nephews name but it's much more popular.

Nick is generally the dad, hanging out with his other mates, Simon and Steve.

Nick is fabulous. Long due a revival.

I like Nick as a nn for Nicholas/Nicolas, Nico is nice too.

Nico always seems like a female name to me. Velvet Underground.

Nick is a cool name, but I'd go for the full version. For some reason I prefer the Nicolas spelling, seems more international without the H. (Although I wouldn't go as far as spelling it with a K.)

DramaAlpaca Fri 10-Jul-15 12:03:10

I like Nicholas or Nicolas, with Nico for short.

Not keen on Nick.

I really like Finn.

MrsNuckyThompson Fri 10-Jul-15 12:06:34

Finn is getting too popular for my liking.

crapfatbanana Fri 10-Jul-15 12:07:20

Really nice name.

Lady in Car: What are you gonna name it?

Alison Bradbury: What?

Lady in Car: The baby.

Alison Bradbury: [realizing she's faking being pregnant] Oh, the baby. Well, if it's a girl, Cynthia, and if it's a boy, Elliot.

Lady in Car: Those are lovely names.

Walter (Gib) Gibson: Elliot? You're gonna name the kid Elliot? No, you can't name the kid Elliot. Elliot is a fat kid with glasses who eats paste. You're not gonna name the kid Elliot. You gotta give him a real name. Give him a name. Like Nick.

Alison Bradbury: Nick?

Walter (Gib) Gibson: Yeah, Nick. Nick's a real name. Nick's your buddy. Nick's the kind of guy you can trust, the kind of guy you can drink a beer with, the kind of guy who doesn't mind if you puke in his car, Nick!

[Alison looks disgusted]

Walter (Gib) Gibson: [to Lady in Car] Oh, vomit. I'm sorry. Vomit.

Nick is a nice name. I'd use it short for Nicholas.

I don't like Finn.

girliefriend Fri 10-Jul-15 16:05:28

Love Nicholas nn Nicky

BlueChampagne Fri 10-Jul-15 20:47:58

Nicholas or Nicolas on birth certificate; Nick, Nic or Nico for short. Fine choice.

LineRunner Fri 10-Jul-15 20:51:25

Or Nikolas / Nik.

Anyway, as BlueChampage says, a fine choice.

VixxFace Fri 10-Jul-15 21:14:54

Nico definitely.

Liberated71 Fri 10-Jul-15 21:17:03

As a Nic with a DP called Nick I can only agree x

mrstweefromtweesville Fri 10-Jul-15 21:20:09

Not Nico, unless you are Italian or some such. Neither Nikolas unless its from your home culture.

Nicholas is a perfectly respectable name, and Nick a reasonable abbreviation.

If you name this child (just) 'Nick', will future children be 'Purloin', 'Tax', 'Snaffle' and ' Make off with'?

BothEndsBurning Fri 10-Jul-15 22:16:07

Or Jail and Clink grin
