Nicholas - classic or dated?
To me, he's handsome, he's smart, he's got fun nicknames to suit every personality, but is he a little bit past his use by date? The youngest Nicholas I know is in his 20s, which is why I'm questioning it - I don't want a future son to think I've given him a 'dad' name.

Nicholas is a classic to me. I know two little boys named this (I work at a child care center, one of the babies 6 months, the other is a 3 year old boy) but I live in Upstate NY and there's a lot of old-fashioned names that have never cycled out here, so I'm not sure what other parts of the country look like.Sean Connor | Patrick Donovan | Sullivan John | Michael Killian | Thomas Iain | Finnegan Mark | James Gabriel | Vincent Anthony | Joseph Brennan | Daniel Ryan |

I think Nicholas is a very handsome and completely useable name! Like you said, there are plenty of nicknames for Nicholas, and spelling variants too for that matter. I know a teenage Nicholas, who loves his name, and one toddler who goes by Nico! I would say it's a classic, but definitely not a 'Dad' name.Expecting two little boys in January 2014!

I'd say that it's a classic but it feels dated to me."Adopting one child won’t change the world: but for that child, the world will change." -- unknown
