I was messing around doing a google search and entered my daughter's name - NIKIDA (pronounced Nickeeda). I came up with a couple of hits from your site. Nikida was born in 1979 and I thought I made up her name - I liked Nikita which is a russian man's name and also Nikidtja which is an aboriginal name. Ended up I just changed the "t" to a "d" and hence Nikida. I can find more recent usage of this name so pehaps it caught on but does anyone know of the name, meaning etc prior to 1979?
