I’ve always have disliked the name Nick and especially Nicky, mainly because they take out the beauty of Nicholas, and that’s not even a decent name. I personally like the meaning, however if I were to choose based off of meanings, I would stick to the feminine Nicole for a girl because it has such a better pronunciation without being a mouthful like Nicholas that can stand on its own without a nickname. Overall, I just wouldn’t name my kid this, Nick or Nicholas.

Could be a unisex name/nickname. My friend's name is Nicole but she says we can call her Nick.

There are too many Nicks in this world. It's not a very satisfying pronunciation. It feels like it should be longer. Once you stop and think about the name, it just sounds so weird. Like... Nick?

Sounds like an Everyman or average joe-esque name, that can fit almost anyone.

This name derives from the Greek name ΝΙΚΟΛΑΟΣ
Nick > Nikola > Nikolaos
The Greek name itself derives from the Greek components:
ΝΙΚΗ-ΛΑΟΣ = victory of people.

This name sounds gentle, strong, and handsome. Because of the various meanings it could take as a word, I would never use this as a given name, but I love it as a nickname.

One of my favorite names. I love the full name of Nicholas, which is strong but gentle, and Nick is a nickname (haha) that is suitable for all ages. I would call my child both Nicholas and Nick, no problem.

While I find Nicholas to be kinda wimpy (of course, only my opinion), I think Nick is a cool name. I just wish it had a long form that I liked.

This name is also slang for police station, so I'm not too keen on it.

For any and all Maximum Ride fans out there, you may remember in 'School's Out - Forever', when Fang starts going by Nick, because Max was hiding his 'real' name. He also goes by Fnick, because Max occasionally forgets and switches halfway through 'Fang' to 'Nick'. Resulting in 'Fnick'.

I don't think anyone has mentioned Nick Chopper yet. That's what the Tin Woodman's name was before he was tin. Sometimes his first name was listed as Nicholas, but L. Frank Baum made it Niccolo once, I believe.

This name is a part of a few expressions, and in British usage, it refers to stealing, so I have grown to find it annoying.

I have always loved this name, and Nicholas too. I think Nick is hot and sexy, but Nicholas is sweet and romantic! Everything about this name and its longer form is perfect!

Sounds like someone arrogant but hot. I don't really like "Nicholas," though, because I knew this really annoying kid with that name.

I love the name. Nikolai is a really cool Russian name but Nicholas is pretty good as well. The only downside is the nickname "Nicky" - not a fan.

Some people use the phrase "in the nick of time." I don't know what "nick" is supposed to mean in this case.

I think that came from a nick as in "I nicked myself shaving" being a slight cut when something passes a hair too close to the skin. "In the nick of time" may mean "very, very close, timing-wise" in this vein of thought.
