I know you can’t wait to meet Nicole the baby.  There’s only one problem with that, what her middle name is going to be is something you haven’t figured out yet.

Should you pay tribute to a loved one? Is it acceptable to use your backup first name as a middle name? Or do you just pick anything that sounds interesting?

In fact, this is exactly why I’ve been putting together my middle name guides in the first place: lists of middle names that go wonderfully with every given first name.

What Does The Name Nicole Mean?

The name is taken from the Greek word Nikolaos and is a feminine variant of Nicholas. The name comes from South Holland, the Netherlands’ most populous province.

It is a compound name made up of the words nik, which means triumph, and laos, which means people, resulting in “victory of the people.” People believe that the name of their children can have an impact on their future success in life.

It can also have a bearing on a child, what their name means. As a result, people often choose names based on their meanings, believing that the meaning of the child’s name may reflect the nature of the child or influence the child later on.

How Do You Pronounce Nicole?

Nicole is pronounced as /nih KOLE/.

How to Choose the Perfect Name to go With Nicole

The most appropriate middle name for Nicole is the one that blends nicely with her first and last names. For example, choose the middle names you want for Nicole from the list below and jot them down on a piece of paper.

Say the names out loud with Nicole at the start. For example, Nicole Ann.  Remove any names that are strange, bizarre, or difficult to pronounce.

Step 2 should be repeated, but this time include the last name and listen to how it sounds. Delete any further names that don’t sound suitable.

Examine the initials of the remaining names and identify the ones that work particularly well together. Make certain that it does not sound absurd or harsh. Consider looking for ones that can be given nicknames when they are grouped together.

By the time you are finished with steps 1-4, you will have cut down the selection to a manageable amount of options that will assist you in deciding on the ideal middle name for Nicole.

What are middle names for?

Not everyone has a middle name, and indeed many people have multiple middle names. I have three, and they were all named after relatives that my parents cared about dearly. The story behind my middle names matters and I love the fact my middle names represent both my grandmothers and my mother.

My own children all have middle names named after their relatives. Often people can make the middle name a nickname later on or even you can put the initials together to form a new name, for example, Nicole Charise could become NC! 

Research has also indicated that having middle names improves people’s chances of getting a better job in the future! According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, people who have middle names are believed to have a high social position and to be intellectually superior.
