... a nice name ? What do you think of that name for a boy?

Mumoftwoyoungkids Sat 10-Feb-18 00:13:49

I like it. But would spell it Nico and use it as a shortening for Nicholas.

JassyRadlett Sat 10-Feb-18 00:16:21

Agree on Nico, it’s nicer.

Where I come from in Australia, a Nikko is a permanent marker.

As in Rosberg?

Sounds like a name given to the lead man in one of those Mills & Boon books in an attempt to make him to sound exotic and mysterious.

Nicole reminds me of that teenage character from hollyoaks Nico Blake, her parents were brother and sister (twins) and she was a bit psychotic and a serial killergrin

I do like Nicole, Nicola, Nicholai, Nicolette, Nicolina (nick oh Leena/ Nick oh line uh)

Oh disregard my last post with name suggestionsblush , I just saw you was asking for a boy grin

Nico is cuter, niko looks a bit like a brand name for something.

It's Polish, pronounced Neeko, short for Nikodem.

MorningstarMoon Sat 10-Feb-18 00:45:09

No but only because I know a Nico and I absolutely hate him. The kind of guy who pulls the I can do whatever I want I'm insert here yeah crack on sunshine

Love it. As some have said, use Nicholas or Nicodemus and then have Niko as a nickname. Gives him a choice of a formal name and a nice nick name.

MikeUniformMike Sat 10-Feb-18 13:41:55

I'd go with Nico, short for Nicodemus.

I like it smile are you Finnish? (the Niko I know is from Finland.)
I also like Nicholas, Nikolas and Nikolai.

FannyHertz Sat 10-Feb-18 14:17:35

I know both a boy and girl Nico, not short for anything. I like it!

BlackberryandNettle Mon 12-Feb-18 22:18:08

Do you mean pronounced 'Neeko' or pronounced 'Nicko' ? I'm never sure when I see Nico. Both are nice, I'd assume they were short for a longer name though eg Nicolas

Again, Xavier is better

I know a Nico, short for Domenico (Italian) - I like it.

There was a German language programme on BBC2 many years ago about a Romanian man moving to Germany. The lead character was Niko.
