Nellie Vladimirovna Kim is a retired Soviet gymnast who won three gold medals and a silver medal at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, and two gold medals at the 1980 Summer Olympics. She was the second woman in Olympic history to earn a perfect 10 score and the first woman to score it on the vault and on the floor exercise, rivaling Nadia Comăneci, Ludmilla Tourischeva, and other strong competitors of the 1970s. Nellie Kim worked for a long time as a coach, training several national teams, and judged many major international competitions. As President of the Women's Artistic Gymnastics Technical Committee, she coordinates the introduction of new rules in women's gymnastics, as provided by the new Code of Points, developed by the FIG in 2004–2005 and in effect since 2006. Her gymnastic appearances are remembered for "her strong feminine, temperamental and charismatic appeal".

I believe that this is the first name of Mrs. Lovett in Stephen Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Stree". This character was played by Helena Bonham-Carter.

An (in)famous Australian coloratura soprano of the early 20th century, Nellie Melba (born Helen Porter Mitchell), carried this name. Melba was not a stellar actress and her personality was the image of the stereotypical demanding opera singer, but her beautiful voice made up for it.
