This is MY first name. It's a girl's name for me. My mother wanted to give me an unusual name, and she definitely succeeded! I cannot find one person that has this name, except for a district attorney in the late 1800s and early 1900s. However, his name is De Lancey Nicoll, so it is a bit different.
-It´s my name too, and it´s a boy´s name for me.
