    Nicholas or Finnick nn Nick

    Honoring my cousin Nicholas who I've always called Nick. My dilemma is to Straight out name a boy Nicholas or do a variant. Would two people with the same name like this go down well?

    Finnick is my favourite variant. Also if he doesn't like Nick he could go by Finn.
    Is it too much of a stretch?

    Finnick or Nicholas?

    I find Nicholas to be way overdone and everyone I've met is a spoiled brat. That being said, I don't think it would be bad to use it and sharing names isn't going to ruin anybodies life :P

    I like Finnick a lot more than Nicholas (but it's not my favorite way to get to Nick). Would you like other ways to get to Nick or are these the only ones you'll consider? -- My Amazon Author Page

    Finnick makes me think of the word "finicky," so I vote Nicholas. Do you like Dominic or Nico at all?

    My favourite Nicholas name is the Russian Nikolai nn Nico. Dominic is also a great suggestion. Finnick was made up by author Suzanne Collins for the Hunger Games book series so it has no depth or history to back it up.
    All the best,

    Thank you for the replies.
    I know the hunger games association. That's partly why I love it names do not need to have any special meaning to me, I don't mind.

    I do like the Dominic suggestion. What other Nick variants are there?
