Medieval Dutch shorter form or variant of Nicolaes. It was exclusively a masculine name at the time. The name has since become used on females as well, which happened in the second half of the 20th century (after World War II). In their case, the name is a variant spelling of the French given name Nicole, which was rising in popularity in the Netherlands at the time.Nowadays, on a total population of about 16.9 million people, the name can be considered rare for both genders. Out of the two, it is rarest on the males: there were 40 male bearers in 2014 versus 436 female bearers that year.
