My name is Nicole. It's becoming quite popular in Ireland and more than a few babies where I live are named it now. My teachers often say my name NEE-cole. I take a lot of comments about that car advertisement from a few years back 'Nicole?' 'Papa?' But I like my name anyway.

My name is also Nicole. I am from the Midwest and here it is more common to hear the name Nicole as a middle name, not a first name. I used to hate my name, but as I have grown, my name has also grown on me.

Nicole is a nice name but I'd rather hear Nicola.

My middle name is Nicole, and four or five of my friend's middle names are Nicole too. I don't think there are any Nicole's in the school I go to, first name I mean.

I'm not a huge fan on the name Nicole. It's my best friends name, and she hates it. Everyone calls her Niki.

I don't mind this name. If I used it, it would be a middle name. I have heard from many that they hate the nickname Nicki.

Nicole has gotten to be a very common name, it is pretty though. I have also heard people complain that they hate the nickname Nicki, I would probably use it as a middle name.

Well, my full name is Ruth Nicole. But no one calls me Ruth, Ruthie, Nicole, Nikki, nope! They call me Coley. :)

Nice enough name, even though it is very, very popular.

I think Nicole/Nicola is a very cute and sweet name for a girl even though it is used often. However, I hate people who call a Nicole/Nicola by names like 'Nicki' or'Nick'.

Nicole is too overused. It's like everyone is named Nicole. It's also used too much as a middle name.

A nickname of Nicole could be Colly.

My mother almost named me Nicole, and I'm glad she didn't. It is a nice name and all, but it's just too popular in my generation, as both a first and middle name. Plus, I've never thought I look much like a Nicole.
-- Lena Is A Secret  9/16/2006
Nicole is too popular. It's a nice name, but I think it's a better middle name than first name. My 2nd cousin was recently given the name Aria Nichole. I think it should be spelled NICOLE.
-- Fincayra  9/23/2006
It's far too common in the UK but it's a nice middle name.

This is my name! I have always liked it and it has fit me to a T! I have always been outspoken for the underdog, fighting the good fights. Victory of the people, or victorious people, may have given me some big shoes to fill! It is beautiful and thankfully not too played out. Plus there are some nicknames you can associate with it or variations also. Nikki, Nicolette, Nichole, Nic, Cole, etc.
-- waitenonheaven  11/10/2006
My name is Nicole but I never really liked it. For me, Nicole is someone who is blonde and kind of a snob, and I'm not that girl. My name is Nicole Anna Felicia, and a lot of people kid me about it because of Anna Nicole Smith. In Sweden we pronounce it like ni-KOLL and that's really ugly. I told you, I'm not a fan of my name. ;) And my brother is named Nicklas, and one of my favorite names is Nicholas, I could never give my son that name! Just hear it, Nicole, brother to Nicklas and mom to Nicholas. *sad*
-- Frozten  12/17/2006
My Name is Nicole I used to not like it to much as a child but now as an adult I love my name! But it seems to be fading out. It's now more of a middle name and spelled Nichole, But I think it's a great name! Very pretty and for some funny reason all the Nicole's I've ever met have been dark featured like myself. But on the nickname Nikki it's ok. But I like to spell it Nykki. Something different and new! But Nicole sounds more mature than Nykki I think.

My name is Nicole. But my best friend Hali calls me Nikki or NikkD. I never use to hate my name. It's a really common name!
-- NikkiD223  12/29/2006
I really don't like this name very much at all. However, I do find a certain elegance and class to it. I once saw Nicole Richie referred to in a magazine as "Nic", and since then, I've fancied this name only for that nickname!
-- Pheadirean  1/13/2007
I like the nickname Colie. All the Nicoles I know are submissive and shy.
-- gracielou16  1/22/2007
In my high school graduating class we had 8 Nicoles & it was a rather small school. Because of this, the name will always be very (early/mid) 1980s to me.

I named my youngest daughter Nicole after a neighbor I had when I was a little girl. We call her Nic or Nici. I don't ever put a "K" in her name. I never understood why people use a "K" when the name is not spelled with one.

Absolutely love this name. It is classy and flirty at the same time. And it is French, love French names!

A lovely, classic name! A bit overused as of late, but I am nonetheless proud to call it my own! Looks good with my middle name, too. Nicole Ashley. :-)
-- nareed  8/1/2007
I think Nicola is ugly and I don't really like the name Nickoline and Nicky is not an attractive name for a gal. This is my middle name, and it is pretty popular as a middle name which is where it should stay.

Nicole is for people who think that any name is beautiful just by virtue of the fact that it's French.

I think this name sounds sweet. All the Nicoles I know are really nice.

However, as a really little girl, I was unable to pronounce the name-- it always came out as "Nickel".

My name is Nicole and growing up I thought my name was so plain and boring. I have grown to like it lots more now that I'm older though. I also love my nickname, Nicky. I think it's cute.

My older sister is named Nicole, born a year and a half before me, when this was one of the top girls' names. She was one of many Nicoles at school. As for me, I've always loved the name, but I think it's played-out.

My middle name is Nicole and I know several people who also have the middle name Nicole. It seems as if it is very popular to use as a middle name. I don't like its popularity, but other than that I think it's a perfectly fine name.

I'm a Nicole, and I'm not a fan. There were several other Nicoles in my high school, and only one of them wanted to be called Nikki. All the rest of us hated it. There are a lot of worse names that my parents could have named me, but I've always felt generic and like my name says nothing about me as a person.

Since Nicolas is named after the Goddess Nike, then it would be more accurate to describe Nicolas as the male version of Nicole (rather than Nicole as the female version of Nicolas.)
-- JewelGatherer  3/16/2009
I like the name Nicole (especially as a first name). Sadly, however, 1 out of every 5 people I meet have the name "Nicole" as their middle name. Sometimes it can get redundant. Please don't get me wrong, it's a pretty name (it's my middle name), but lately it has been over-used.

She has also performed in various theatre roles, perhaps most notably her turn as Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the East in the Broadway production of the musical "Wicked", a role she played from January through July of 2009.

I think Nicole is most common for middle names. Why can't parents pick something unique for their children instead of overused garbage?

I was born in '91, and Nicole was a *very* common name in America at that time, especially in my area (Chicago). I knew tons of Nicoles growing up. One was my cousin, who we called Coley (as far as I know, she hates the nickname Nikki). And there were two Nicoles in my junior high graduating class--one was pretty decent, who went by Nikki or "Nicole V" for the teachers (to separate her from the other one), and the other Nicole. Well, let's just say that I didn't get close enough to her to hear anyone else call her something besides Nicole, because she was an *awful* human being!

So, I would say my association with that particular Nicole put me off the name, except I was never really a big fan of it in the first place. To me, it's just a really harsh name, like both syllables ("nih" and "cohl") are emphasized with equal force. I guess it would work as a middle name, but I don't think I'll ever use Nicole in any capacity--*maybe* as a character name. Still like it better than Ashley, though (which was *the* most common name of my generation).
-- erb816  6/29/2010
My name is Nicole. It kind of bothers me at times because it is boring and overused. And there are no good nicknames for it. Nick or Nicki is too masculine and when somebody asks "Can I call you Nicki?" I always say, "No." My brother calls me "Cole" and my parents call me "Koli Bear" (shh don't tell anyone) but it's not like anyone by default is going to call me Koli. Sure, there are times when I like it and it's cute. I've only met two or three other Nicoles and it's not like it's like the name "Allison" and you hear it everywhere. But, still. I like unique names and Nicole just isn't anything special. But I might as well be grateful it was Nicole, a name I can live with and not some name I really dislike.
-- AmericaSpainGermany  7/15/2010
Nicole is a really pretty name, but it might be a little overused. Maybe Colette instead.

Nicole is sooooo boring. Too many people with this name also. I would never in a million years name my child this because to me it sounds like a dumb, stuck up girl. Also it doesn't even have remotely interesting origins.
-- Anonymous User  5/20/2011
Nicole is ok, its boring and over used though. I like Nicola a lot better. I despise the nickname Nikki, though. Man-ish, trashy, stripper-ish etc.
-- Anonymous User  5/25/2011
Nicole is a nice name. It's overused though. And no offense to the Nicoles out there, but I think that every Nicole I've met in my life was a conceited snob; but those are just the ones who go to my school. Other than that I like it because it means "victorious".
-- blondieboo629  7/7/2011
My name is Nicole. I like it because it means "victory", plus my dad always wanted a daughter named Nicole and all the people I've introduced myself to say it's a really nice name. Yes, Nicole is a very popular name and it's SO cliche for people on this website to say "I hate this name because it's popular!" Honestly? If a name is popular, it means that it is a good name and people love it. People who say Nicole is an ugly name have my respect for their opinion, but it's probably coming from people who think the names "Ashley" and "Aubrey" should be used as boy names like they were 90 years ago. In movies, the Nicoles are often snobs or sluts. I am not a snob because I am friends with anyone is a nice, kind person with a good heart no matter who they are, what they like or where they came from and I am not a slut because I am a virgin and will stay that way until I'm married. I am very outgoing and friendly. People need to get over the stereotypes of ALL names, not just Nicole, and parents should use whatever names they like on their children because commentary on this website is not popular opinion. Sorry, but I felt like I needed to stick up for this name after reading the comments.

My cousin is named Nicole but nobody ever calls her that. Family always calls her Nicki or Nick. I also had a best friend named Nicole and I'd call her Cole often. The name can work for different types of people.

Nicole is played out. It's a very old school name, long past its prime. It reminds me of when French names were popular. I do not recommend this name for a modern baby girl.
-- Anonymous User  8/21/2011
Nicole sounds so bratty. It's very blah. It's my best friends name and she hates it but she doesn't want to be called Nikki because she says it sounds like trailer trash. I do prefer Nicole to Nikki. With Nikki, I picture a slore with too much botox and lip injections.
-- Anonymous User  1/4/2012
I've loved Nicole ever since having a French penfriend called Nicole - a very intelligent, sweet and chic girl. I still like it even though it's become a tad too common.

I really love the name Nicole, it is very pretty. And it isn't a snobby or bratty name in real life or movies. In the movie "Fear" the girl's name is Nicole and she is nice and sweet. Besides your name doesn't define your personality. At times I wish my name was Nicole.
-- Anonymous User  6/3/2013
I know Nicole is considered pretty 80's in the US, but in France it's more likely that you'd meet a 75 year old Nicole than a 25 year old one. It was a very popular name in the 40's and 50's, but was extremely rare after the 70's.
-- bonjour_mon_joli  8/25/2013
The meaning of the name Nicole in most of its translations is "victory of the people" or "people's victory". I've also heard "victorious among the people".

Being born in the late eighties, I knew a lot of Nicoles growing up. Some I hated, some I was indifferent to. One of them is a lovely person who's still my close friend today. My main issue with this name is that it's ugly. It looks ugly. It sounds ugly. In addition to my distaste for its sound and spelling, it was so ubiquitous during my childhood that it makes me think of the Nineties and turtlenecks. Ugh. Nikki is a stupid nickname. Cole is too masculine to be a reasonable girl's nickname. Nicholle and Nicolle are just uglier spellings. In my opinion, if you're looking for a female version of Nicholas, go for Nikoleta. It's prettier and more interesting.
-- kvpp88  10/17/2014
My name is Nicole, and I was born in the late 90's. Growing up, I did not like the sound of my name. I felt it was such a short, abrupt name that hardly sounded feminine. But now that I'm older, I'm realizing how great of a name for a girl it is. It may be short, but it's classic and easy to spell and say. It's not overly frilly or extensively long - it's just right.
-- nicolemichaela  11/6/2014
My husband's late grandmother's middle name was Nicole, and she always wanted to name her daughter Nicole... but she only had boys. I am having the first girl in the family and we are going to use Nicole as either a first or middle name. It is a beautiful, classic name. We are either going with Nicole Jewel or Jewel Nicole! :)
