    Default Nikolai

    What do you think of this name for a boy?

    Thanks.

    I'm a bit on the fence with it.
    Do you have Russian heritage or something that drew you to the name?
    If it's special to you then go for it. Also be prepared that he'd likely be called Nick

    Another fence sitter here. It's ok. Not a name I'd pick but not one that I think is horrible either.

    Lol. It's risky if you ask people's opinions on names! I wouldn't be able to get this out of my head and it would be off the table straight away!

    Not a fan at all unless it's a traditional name you're carrying down through the generations and means something to you. Also be prepared for people to say nick o lay

    TBH when I glanced initially it came across as a girls name- a misspelling of Nicola.

    I like it but my husband is eastern European so it is fairly familiar to me already - agree that is is a bit 'different' by Australian standards.

    It's as nice a name as any.
    I would not use culturally spelled names unless it was in my heritage somewhere but that's just me. I mean isn't it just the Russian version of Nicholas?
    He's gonna get called Nick by the time he's a teen
