My best friends sister's name beautiful woman amazing mom, sweet, cute and smart very charming and lady like has great style, hard working - great name choice
I think Nikita is a beautiful name, but my mom would've said "Reminds me of Nikita Khruschchev!" So I could never name a daughter this.
As someone born in 1992 who has lived with this name my whole life, I can attest to strangers' commenting frequently on the above (and that my parents must be communists).
- Personal experiences with the name Nikita: | Edit
People will misspell and mispronounce this name constantly. Be ready for your child to have a life full of ignorant references to Russia and spelling their name aloud on a regular basis.
I know a Nikita who has a twin sister called Nadia.

(Russian: Никита nʲɪˈkʲitə) is a name common in Russia. The Russian variant originated as a masculine Greek name, and subsequently Russian name. The name is derived from the Greek Nicetas (Νικήτας, meaning "victor"). The Greek name entered Slavic onomastics by way of the veneration of Saint Nicetas the Goth (died 372) in the Russian Orthodox Church.
Meaning "victor" or "unconquerable"
