It's quite a common name in NZ, but exclusively for girls. I've met maybe 10. I can hardly imagine it for a boy.

Kew Says:


This is a girls' name in India, and a boys' name in Russia. It is not a Russian form of Nicole.

I know this is a traditionally male name but nowadays it's unisex like Sasha has become. (I know in Europe, Sasha is used MUCH more for boys).

I've known a Nikita in real life and she was a girl.
