Gender: M Meaning of Nicolo: "people of victory" Origin of Nicolo: Italian form of Nicholas

Nicolo is a more lively and exotic variation of Nicholas. A name with a long, distinguished Italian history of its own, it also boasts the charming nickname Nico.

Although the female counterpart, Nicola, has long been a favorite in the UK, Nicolo has not yet made a similar transition. It was chosen, though, by actor Stanley Tucci, for his son.

Nicolo is a name with musical reverberations, connected to the major early violin maker Amati, and the later violin virtuoso Paganini.
