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.♧ expecting a wee one in november ♧

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.[FONT=Book Antiqua][B]Mummy to two little princes born 16/1/14[/B] :D

I'd say that it's a classic but it feels dated to me.Current favorites:
