I think Nicola is a cool name for a girl. I don't know, names that end in "a" pronounced "uh" seem more for a girl.

I have a friend called Nicola and it is a very pretty name. I call her Nico as a joke. I think the prettier pronunciation is "NI-co-la", instead of "ni-CO-la". To me the second pronunciation just sounds disturbing. I don't know why.

My name is Nicola but people call me Nikki, Nico, Nixxi, Nikkita, Nikabrik (like in Prince Caspian), or Nic.

I pronounce my middle name nee-COL-uh, the Spanish way.

I prefer this name to the overused Nicole, and I like it best spelled without the 'h'. This has to be pronounced ''NI-ko-la'', however, not as ''ni-KO-la'', as the latter makes me think of Coca Cola. This name sounds quite spunky, like the name of a lively and confident, intelligent young woman, but the religious roots of the name are a reason for me not to use it.

I think this name is quite common in the UK and there it is pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable. Nicole has been so popular in the US but Nicola never really caught on.

My cousin's called Nicola, but she pronounces it NIK-oh-la. To me this sounds a lot prettier than ni-KO-la.

I've met lot of girls named Nicola, and the only pronunciation I've ever heard is NIK-oh-lah, not nik-OH-lah.

This name and Nichola are pronounced NIK-ə-lə, not ni-KO-lə. It's pronounced in the same was as Nicholas but without the 's'. [noted -ed]

My name is Nicole and back in kindergarten there was this girl who got my name wrong and called me "Nicola". And then her sister called me "Coca Cola" because they both thought Nicola was my name and it sounded like the pop to them. And then all the people in my kindergarten called me that. Thank goodness for elementary school, because I HATED that nickname. And I hate the name "Nicola". It sounds like a brand of soda, it's ugly on both boys and girls. Don't call your child Nicole or Nicola, please. Nicole because it's overused and Nicola because it's gross and cheap. Your child will end up resentful to their name and school if they had to go through what I did.

The entry says this name is used in British English, but it's quite common in Australia, and I would say it's probably used in America too. [noted -ed]

I'm sorry but this name is just ugly. All I can see is "cola" which sounds yucky.

Soo… this is my name, and I used to hate it, but now I like it okay. I don't love it, but I like it better than Nicole.
One of my biggest issues is that people almost always pronounce it ni-KO-la at first. And once someone thought it was Nikolai, which was annoying. I also don't like any nicknames for it- Nic, Nikki, Cola (just no)- which means I go by my full name. People sometimes think that makes me a snob, which kind of sucks.
I would advise anyone considering naming their child this to think about nicknames before naming them this.
