    Nikotalia

    Nikotalia is a name my friend made up for a character (we're both really into writing) but I'm going to take some credit as well because although it isn't currently used as a name, that I know of, I did some research and found that in Greek it could mean 'victory flourishing' from the greek elements nik(e) meaning victory, and thalia, meaning flourish(ing)
    Talia can be a variant spelling of Thalia, or a separate Hebrew name. (The o I interpreted as a combining syllable)

    Ahh, I've done this before.

    I came up with Nicolyla for a story once. It's beautiful in your head, but once you utter it outloud, it's rather awkward.

    As for Nikotalia, it's a bit "clunky" looking, but it's pretty sounding. Nicotalia would be prettier imo.
    I'm not usually for created names, but this one feels like it could be an ancient name to me. I like it, I'm not sure if I'd use it for an actual child since it's not really fitting with my style.

    east93- Lol, I saw that thread this morning right after I read about Nikolina on behindthename.com. I agree with you about created names, although I do use some created names in my writing, the main reason being they haven't been used, so it creates a strong character identity. My friend (her name is Camryn) would love Nikolina, now that I think of it, because it pretty much combines the names of her two favorite characters ever. (Nicko Heap and Lina Inverse)

    Hm. I will have to agree with pps. But I always had a crush on the plant name Nicotiana ("nih-CO-shee-ah-nah") which is not a human name at all really. It's the tobacco plant- nicotiana tabacum.
