Comments for NIKE:

Nike is actually pronounced "Nee-keh". It´s used as a name in Germany. Nike was the Greek goddess of victory.

Nike shoes--"Just Do It."

Pretty name, but it's too bad about those connotations with expensive shoes and slave labour. Thanks to the corporation, hardly anyone (at least in the US) knows that Nike is anything BUT a brand name.

In English, it's pronounced NIE-kee.

It's a really nice name. Too bad it's a brand name. That kind of ruins the nice name and meaning.

Niké´s pet forms are Nikita, Nikin(k)a, Nika.

In the ancient Greek world, I think the brand company would have been in deep trouble and maybe even sentenced to death. They took their gods - and their names - very seriously.

I like it. It makes me think of a tomboy (which is certainly not a bad thing).

I don't really care for this name. It's kind of bland, and it's too heavily associated with a running shoe to be used in most places.

This name sounds really cool. Too bad that it'll inevitably be associated with the brand.

Her Roman counterpart is Victoria.

This is also, and unfortunately because it's a beautiful name, the name of a major athletic apparel company.

If Nike wasn't a shoe and clothing brand, and never was, this would be a beautiful name.

Sounds nice though the brand sort of, you know, kinda makes it unusable.
