Love this name, very mysterious.

In German "nix" means "nothing". I would not use this name.

I really like this name. I wouldn't name a person Nyx personally, but my black cat's name is Nyx.

Nyx is a character in the movie Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. She is a fairy scout.

Nyx is a very pretty name. I think it's nicer for a middle name. It's very mysterious.

The spelling looks cool, but I'm not sure I like the pronunciation. Most people would assume it is spelled "Nicks". Fire Emblem has made this name grow on me though.

A very pretty name for a girl. I also like Nixe. Pheonix is a modern, tacky name for a boy or girl but Nyx is a lovely classic name for a girl.

Gorgeous! It’s mature, not overused and has an ancient, mysterious feel to it.

I think you'd have to understand the meaning of this name to like it.

Nyx is the name of the head tooth fairy in the movie Tooth Fairy 2, who turned Larry Guthrie (portrayed by Larry the Cable Guy) into a pink tooth fairy.

Nyx has an ethereal kind of sound that could suit a woman all the way through her life. (I do not pronounce it the correct Greek way, but that's not too much of an issue because I live nowhere near Greece. I pronounce it the way English speakers do- NIKS)
I love any name that is associated with the night or the moon. Also reminds me of Nyx cosmetics.

This name is by far my favorite to use. I just love it. It's part of the night and it has real meaning to it not just the " oh, I just like this name. Let's just use it." type of thing most people do. Night is my favorite time and I happen to think that this is the goddess that hears our prayers. She's loving and just plain amazing. I love this name!

I love this name, I named one of my twin daughters this and she's now 13 and loves her name.

Well, this is what I think of the name, it sounds kind of cool and since it's a Greek name it kind of reminds me of this book series called Percy Jackson and the Olympianas. Even though they use Roman names they talk about Gods in this book.

A perfect nickname for Phoenix!
xDante  7/30/2009
I used to love this name, but now the House of Night Series has kind of ruined it for me. Can't stand the writing in those books.

But I think the meaning's really cool! And I guess I still love it!

Though most of you seem to think it would be an ugly name for a child, or that said child would be made fun of, I think you're wrong. Personally, I think it's a beautiful name that gives you a sense of mystery. As for being made fun of, everyone gets made fun of for their name at some point, or at least most do. Also, it has an interesting origin in Greek mythology. It's fascinating to have a name with a background to it.

The sound vaguely reminds me of shaving nicks. Not good.

It's a cool name, then again I'm a sucker for names that have x's in them.

In Greek Mythology, the goddess Nyx was the only person Zeus ever feared.
rory  6/21/2008
I assume this is pronounced ''NIKS''. It sounds just like the slang word for 'nothing' in German, 'nix'. Also, the name would surely lead to nixing jokes. It sounds ugly to me.

I love the feeling of mystery in this name, that's why I'm using it in a story where 5 girls discover they have special powers. I wouldn't name a child this name, though, because of all the funny looks and reactions to the name the child might get.
smurphul  9/3/2007
I think this is a cool name, but a child with this name might get made fun of.

In mythology, Nyx is the mother of day (from night comes day), sleep, dreams, the Fates and the Furies, and the goddess Nemesis, among others. She is sometimes said to be the mother of Charon, the ferry-man for the souls crossing Acheron.
