This is my full name.. when I was a kid I wanted to be named Nicole instead because it was popular and more feminine sounding, and then as a teeneger I wanted to change it to something more old-fashioned lol. But tbh I kinda like my name now and I'd rather be Nico than Ashley or Kaylee so I'm cool with it
