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

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

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

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

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

I'd go with Nico, short for Nicodemus.

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.

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

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

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

*Nico reminds me of that teenage character ....not Nicole

I know a Nikolaos. He's Greek.

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

ElderflowerWaterIsDelish Sat 10-Feb-18 00:27:58

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)

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.

TittyGolightly Sat 10-Feb-18 00:19:21

As in Rosberg?

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.

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

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

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