Meaning: People’s victor
Alternate spellings: Nichole, Niccole, Nikole, Nicola, Nicolette, Nicky, Nicki, Colette, Nicolina
Nicole, a female version of the Greek name Nicholas, means “people’s victor.” This meaning itself is a winner; give your girl this name and she’ll always get what she wants…she’ll make sure of it. Look at Kidman and Richie’s careers: both worked for what they wanted and made it big. And as soon as Nicole entered the girls’ chart in 1942, it fought its way tooth and nail to the top. It gained a lot of ground in the 1960s and got into the top 100, then made its way to the top 15 between 1972 and 1994. Then in the nineties, Nicole beat a hasty retreat, dropping quickly back down the charts. If you’re looking for something a little more colorful, try stylish Nicola or sassy Nicolette.
