What do you think? I think I love it...

Olbersparadox Wed 16-Mar-16 23:04:06

It's a nice name, go for it

seeyouinthetreehouse Wed 16-Mar-16 23:06:56

is it a bit 90's do you think?

Vixxfacee Wed 16-Mar-16 23:08:02

Definitely 90s. I wouldn't.

InkleWinkle Wed 16-Mar-16 23:12:21

Lovely

JeanGenie23 Wed 16-Mar-16 23:15:43

No I am not a fan, I hold it in the same regard as Michelle (DH suggestion) it's too 90s maybe in a generations time it will be the granny chic!

DrAmandaBentley Wed 16-Mar-16 23:15:46

I think it's a very pretty name, and not very common these days. I really like it.

Sophronia Wed 16-Mar-16 23:21:10

I like it

antiqueroadhoe Wed 16-Mar-16 23:23:58

I still think of Nicole? Papa? Renault Clio

Jw35 Wed 16-Mar-16 23:25:12

I've always liked it

writingonthewall Wed 16-Mar-16 23:26:13

Papa immediately springs to mind. Showing my age. ...

Coldtoeswarmheart Wed 16-Mar-16 23:26:51

Bit 90s.

silkyoreilly Wed 16-Mar-16 23:36:06

Not keen on it.

BackforGood Wed 16-Mar-16 23:50:00

I like it - fits all my criteria....
People reading it will know how to say it
People hearing it will know how to spell it
It's an actual name, and isn't the name of an object
The fact it's not really, really, really popular at the moment is a real bonus. smile

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Wed 16-Mar-16 23:54:04

Love it.

Also think of Nicole, Papa!

I like the idea of a name that suits a grown up rather than a little girl. And I like the nickname Coco for when she is little. I think it's quite elegant.

mrsschu Thu 17-Mar-16 08:02:36

It is a bit dated but I still like it (plus I have a lovely friend called Nicole). I think it sounds quite sophisticated. There definitely won't be many other Nicole's at the moment if that's important to you!

manicinsomniac Thu 17-Mar-16 10:13:43

I like it.

The only Nicoles I know would have been 80s babies, not 90s.

But I think it's pretty and due a revival

Jw35 Thu 17-Mar-16 13:31:12

Coco is a cute nn op!

ABitAsleep Thu 17-Mar-16 13:32:55

Go for it! Everything else 'dated' has come back around, so why can't this come back - i like it smile

Ilovegummibaers Thu 17-Mar-16 15:18:04

Nice classic name!

The fact that it was trendy 20 years ago means it isn't overused today - it's still the same name without everyone else sharing it with you.

Go for it! Much better than another Ellie, Evie or other similar currently trendy name.

SqueegyBeckinheim Thu 17-Mar-16 15:24:20

I really like it, I wanted to call DD Nicole, but DH vetoed it sad.

IoraRua Thu 17-Mar-16 15:41:34

It's lovely. Who really gives a feck if it was 90s popular. Sure Amelia, Sofia etc all will scream 2010s but are still perfectly acceptable names.
It doesn't strike me as dated in the way that say Maura, Gary, Trevor or Carol would.

ClarenceTheLion Thu 17-Mar-16 15:58:01

Whenever I meet a Nicole I always have to run through the "Nicole? Papa?!" bit in my head. But that's because I'm of a Certain Age... It's a nice name, and she almost definitely won't go through school life being a first name and last name initial!

Ilovegummibaers Thu 17-Mar-16 16:20:20

I don't get this 'dated' or '90s' comment either. Surely it's better to choose a name that isnt't CURRENTLY overused. Nicole is a lovely classic name that isn't overused at the moment, go for it!
