- I love the nickname Niki, but not the name Nicole, so it's the perfect alternative. It flows so nicely too.
- I really like this name because it sounds spikey. It reminds me of Africa and all of it's beautiful colours. It can be shortened to Nikki or even Kit. I think it's very original.
- Strong name that is bold and unusual in australia
Nikita is a man's name in Russia (like former Soviet premier Nikita Khruzchev). It's the Russian form of the Greek name Aniketos, meaning "unconquerable". It enjoyed popularity as a feminine name after Elton John hit with the song "Nikita" in the 80's which supposedly was about a woman (yeah right!)
