Gender: F Meaning of Nicolette: "people of victory" Origin of Nicolette: French, diminutive of Nicole, feminine variation of Nicholas, Greek

Nicolette is the ultra-feminine name of an enchanting princess in the medieval French romance, Aucassin et Nicolette, a name that got stacks of publicity in the heyday of Desperate Housewives and its star Nicolette Sheridan. It was also the name of Chloe Sevigny's character in Big Love.

Nicoletta is an Italian variation; the cool nickname Nico modernizes it and makes it less feminissima.
