My friend spells her name Nickie. It started off with Nikki and then Nicki then it became Nickie.

Sometimes people have the name Nikki even though it is usually a pet's name.
amber monkey  3/16/2006
A pet form is not for pets. It is short for Nicole. Personally, I loathe this name. It sounds bratty.
Mithos514  4/7/2006
I was just saying that some people's pets have this name.
amber monkey  4/26/2006
The way you had worded it sounded like it was only for pets. I have yet to meet a person with this name for a pet.

Nikki Wong is the sarcastic punk-like girl from the cartoon show 6TEEN. She's my favorite character and I'm a lot like her.

I think Nikie is a better spell of this name.
honungspinglan  1/6/2007
My friend hates her real name being Nicole so she calls herself Nikki. Call her anything besides Nikki and she gets really mad!

My name is Nicola but Nikki suits me so I use Nikki.
nixxi  3/24/2007
I think it might work as a nickname for Veronika or Veronica. In my opinion, Nikki is ok, but not a favorite.

Personally I think Nikki can be used as a masculine name on a younger character. I named one of my characters Nikki (although his real name is Niklas). If ever I depict him as an adult, however, I won't call him Nikki.

I prefer this spelling to Nicki any day! If you spell it Nicki, it seems easier for people -especially boys- to tease you and call you Nick. But for family it seems like it would be okay for someone to call you Nick.

Icky comes into my mind when I hear this name.

Bassist Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.
Stardust  4/25/2008
This is my name and I spell it just like this. This is literally my name though, no other way around it and it's not short for Nicole or anything of that sort. I've been told it suits me though it is a rather tomboyish-conotated name.
xxnaraiyu06  9/12/2008
I really like the name Nikki. And have never heard of someone calling one of their pets this. My sister's nickname is Nikki and it totally fits her.
Robinlove  11/11/2008
This is my name, and I don't like it. Firstly, I'm a girl, but I hear it on men as a nickname, it's really annoying, because it's a feminine name. Second, people get confused with the spelling, I have to constantly tell them how to spell it, plus it doesn't sound like a real name, I'm always asked what it's short for, and people often are unlikely to take my name seriously, it sounds like a bimbo name, and I am the complete opposite, I have a European look, I have black hair, pale skin and a slender bod, definitely not the blond, tanned, curvy "bombshell" most people associate this name with. It just doesn't suit me. On the plus side, it's not a common name.

Nikki Reed is the actress that plays Rosalie Hale in the Twilight movies.
krazykels  12/30/2008
I like this spelling, it looks sharp. The "c" in Nicki looks out of place with all the straight lined letters. I'd only use it as a nickname though.
MoonAgeDaydreamer  1/3/2009
Nikki is my best friends name so it's not just a pet name for something else.
atom140  3/24/2009
This is my real name. It's not short for Nicole or any other form of the name. It's just Nikki. I used to hate my name when I was younger, I don't even know why anymore; I just wanted something more unique and uncommon. But now I've come to like my name and realised that Nikki really isn't that common as a name on its own after all. It only seems so because all the Nicoles out there go by Nicki/Nickie/Niki or Nikki. I have only met one other person in my whole life who's name was just Nikki, only she spelled it Nicki.
Arieanne  4/4/2009
I like this spelling better than Nicki. Or Nicky. I like this style because it looks more modern and youthful and fun.
adrenalinekat  12/28/2010
I think it is short and sweet, you know? Possibly a bit kiddish but otherwise quite cute! I quite like it!
karyn cheong  4/26/2011
I don't like this name. It sounds like a trashy, unintelligent girl/boy. Sorry but it's not very good. The meaning isn't interesting either.
― Anonymous User  5/20/2011
I hate my first name so I'm glad I had Nikki to fall back on as a middle name. I think it suits me and I have played with the spelling at times taking out one of the ks but I don't like it with a "c" I think that makes it look more masculine, just my opinion though. I don't like it for a boy but that's probably mostly because it's my name and I don't consider myself masculine at all, hard to think of it on a non bias level.

I wouldn't recommend Nikki for a child's name. I'm put off because for some reason it sounds very bimbo-ish. Like a fake name of an adult film star, lol.

Nikki sounds a lot like icky. Popular name amongst trailer trash.
― Anonymous User  1/4/2012
It isn't something I would ever name one of my children, but it's ok. It does bring to mind ditsy, no substance types.
― Anonymous User  1/22/2012
This is a fun name. It is so cute I like it with two Ks instead of Nicki.

This sounds like an outgoing, confident, sweet, and edgy girl. I imagine a volleyball player, a model, an actress, a popular girl, a nice and friendly girl.

I love this name. I adore this name. 8 out of 10.

Nikki means 'victory of the people', isn't that an awesome meaning? Nikki looks happy and fun! I love this nickname for Nicole.

Nikki Maxwell is the main character of the Book series The Dork Diaries.

The meaning of the name “Niki” is different in several languages, countries and cultures and has more than one different meaning available. And the original Niki means goodness and kindness. It's not bratty either! The roots of this name are Persian and Greek! And just because someone decides to name his dog Max that doesn't make Max a pet name. The same goes for Niki!

I'm gonna be mom and I'm searching for unique names for my baby girl, I may just choose Nikki, it just seems awesome!
Safoura  3/4/2016
Nikki means 'victorious', 'victory of the people', or a Japanese surname meaning 'two trees.'

As someone whose name is Nikki, I will give some pros and cons.

It is a simple name that is usually spelled the way it sounds. You may only find a few who have this name as their full name and can usually go well with many surnames. Various impressions have been given for someone who has this name and the fact that it can be used as a full name despite originally being the nickname of 'Nicole' may seem a little out of the norm.

Variations with the spelling, so you can't expect people to have it correct unless you tell them. It will be mistaken as a nickname for Nicole. Some people, typically kids, will find a way to make fun of it in terms of rhyming the name. This is not to say that the child is more prone to become bullied because of the name, but it is a fair warning.

My overall opinion is that unless you like names that may seem a bit out there, and names that could be nicknames but are actually full names themselves, I wouldn't recommend it. Victoria may be a better suggestion if you want a girl's name with the similar meaning of 'victory'.
