Comments and insights on the name Nikita: | Edit

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.
