    The nickname "Cole" for Nicholas?

    What do you think of it? I really love Nicholas and Cole but I can't stand Nick so I fell in love with it when I saw it the other day. Do you know any Nicholas' that go by Cole in real life?

    I know a Co or Coe. Not sure how he's spelling it but it seems to be the only thing he goes by!

    I definitely think it can work. It is pleasingly unexpected from nicholas, but absolutely logical. Go for it!

    I know a Nicholas that goes by Cole. I think it works. The Cole sound is right there in the middle of Nicholas.

    I love Nicholas nn Cole! If I used Nicholas, Cole is definitely the nn I would use. It has the Cole sound right there in the name, so I think it wouldn't be too hard to enforce, even if people start trying to call him Nick/Nicky (which I really can't stand, either!). In a perfect world, I would opt for Nicholas nn Claus, but I'm not sure that would work too well in America. Nicholas nn Cole is usable, down-to-earth, handsome, and smart. I really like it.
