A simple and cool name for a boy. I find it strange on girls.

I like it, but it reminds me of "Nico Nico Nii~!" a bit too much. Oh yeah, and Nico Nico Video, the Japanese video sharing site.

This can also be a name for a girl. Singer from Blind Melon, Shannon Hoon, named his daughter Nico. I think it would be nice for a boy or a girl.

My name is Nico and I like the name. My girlfriend Carly calls me Nico even though my real name is Nicholas. I might even name my son (if I ever have one) this. Most people think the name Nico is childish, but I like it, so yeah.

Nico is a very nice name! It sounds exotic and attractive but it is easy to say. A great nickname for Nicolas or a standalone name.

Nico is acually a unisex name, being short for Nicholas, Nicola or Nikola, or just Nico. I always loved the name, and it's so easy for someone like me who is Genderfluid. No need for two names, just Nico.

Nico is an awesome name for a person of any gender. I love Nico from the Percy Jackson books, so there's that. My genderqueer best friend is named Nico, and I named a character who is also genderqueer after her.

Um, no. Sounds like something someone would name their Siberian husky. I don't know if I'd be able to take this name seriously on an adult, although it might be a cool nickname for Nicholas/Nicolas.

I wouldn't recommend using the variant Neko, it means cat in Japanese. Unless you like that kind of thing.

Singer/model/actress Nico was just NICO. Her birth name was Christa Paeffgen (I don't know how to do Umlauts, so I use the internal e). Once you tack a last name onto it, Nico does seem to become more masculine.

Although Nico was a strikingly beautiful woman in her youth (before drugs and hard living took their toll), her deep Dietrich-like singing voice, her decidedly unfrilly manner of dress, gesture and speech made for a somewhat androgynous impression. Which, I think, she enjoyed.

She was "named after" a man, the former lover of one of her early photographers. However, it's been suggested that her name echoes more feminine sounding names like Coco (as in Chanel) and that was part of the appeal.

Contemporary singer Neko Case uses a variant (and therefore perhaps more feminine?) spelling.

I have a male cousin named 'Federico' and we've always called him 'Nico'. His name is NOT Nicolas. To me, this name is totally masculine.

It seems strange to me that Nico would be considered a girls' name, let alone predominantly feminine. It ends with an 'O' which is traditionally masculine. A beautiful name for a boy. A somewhat silly name for a girl.

As people above me have proved, you'll find Nico used more often as a girl's name rather than a boy's.
