Nico is one of the great nickname names, full of charm, energy and sex appeal--a neo Nick. It has risen 95 places in the past year, one of the ten highest risers on the boys' list in 2011.
Nico is commonly heard in Italy--as a short form of Niccolo--and also in France, Belgium, Germany, Holland, and Spanish-speaking countries.
As a unisex nickname name, Nico is associated with the German-born single-named Velvet Underground singer (nee Christa) promoted by Andy Warhol, and Nico Reilly was one of the female leads on the TV series "Lipstick Jungle." But over 90% of the American babies named Nico are boys.
