Growing up I babysat a group of kids the 2nd to last one was named nico, ever since than I fell in love with it and always new if I had a boy his name would be Nicolas, as I got older and had my first son I had no choice and he ended being Richard( he's the III) so when we found out we having a mother boy I knew he was going to be nico, but to make it more my own I changed the c to a k since I could say he was named towards me Kristina. So his name became Nikolas! I love that it's unique and not everyone will have it! I also cursed him with never finding your name spelt the same way.
