    Your thoughts on Nicola

    We are expecting #5 and a name I have been crushing on recently is Nicola. I am wondering what your thoughts on it are and if you think it goes with my sibset (John, Thomas, Isla and Freya). TIA!
    Andie - Mama to John, Thomas, Isla, Freya and Marigold (12/30/14).

    Female Machiavelli? I kid. It seems you dear are more daring when it comes to your daughters. Nicole and it's variations for me have been tainted ever since I hear it was the most common stripper or porn name. If I were you, I'd go very Velvet Underground and go with the glamorous Nico.

    I like Nicola and it feels perfectly logical in the set!

    I think my post disappeared. I like Nicola and like it with you sibset. My concern if you are in the US is that rhyming it with Coca Cola might be something you occasionally deal with.

    It depends on how you pronounce it. Were you thinking NICK-ola or nick-OLA? I've heard both, and either way, you're bound for mispronunciation.
    It's a pretty name, but it doesn't make a statement like both Isla and Freya do. The blend between the names isn't disjointed, but it doesn't quite sound like a "set" either, if you know what I mean. A French variation, Colette, might work better.
    Here are some more suggestions:
    Antonia
    Stella
    Gianna
    Annika
    Caterina
    Noa
    Amelie/Ameline
    Marla
    Eleanor
    Elodie
    Alma
    Mabel
    Lena
    Aurora nn Rory
    Sabine
    Amandine
    Miriam
    Camilla
    Chloe
    Esme
    Marie
    Elena
    Maya
    Daisy
