Meaning & History

Nichette is the name of a character in Alexandre Dumas's (fils) 1848 novel and play named "Camille" (also known as "The Lady of the Camellias"). The name Nichette was also featured in the title of a movie short from 1911 named "The Heart of Nichette". It was also used for a character in the 1917 musical comedy play "Yes, Uncle!". Since Dumas fils is the earliest instance of the aforementioned sources, it is unclear whether Dumas fils independently made the name up, or whether he took it from the highly rare French surname Nichette (also compare the surnames Nichet, Niquet and Niquette) - which is probably a patronymic derived from the first name Nicolas.
