I do like Nikolai, I'm not quite sure how you are pronouncing the middle name, but I like it, it's a tad different but not strange, you know! Awesome!

al - o - yes, its a really old german name, and ive never heard of it before either until S/O brought it up loL his mother is being "pissy" with him because i dont want to name the baby alois the first name, and he keeps telling her its our choice, not hers, she had two sons and she used andrew and nathaniel, now its MY turn loL and she also hates nikolai for some reason, but honestly it was S/O who brought it up (i told him to shoot off names he likes and ill pick from that, arnt i nice? :P) but im happy my baby's daddy is sticking up to his mom, he said give him a couple weeks to work the name over in his mind to see if it works (he wanted me to wait until the birth! HAHA funny, im so impatient loL) and any ways who wouldnt think a cute little bundle called niko woulndt be cute? and its not as common as alot of names out there these days. i told SO that hes gonna have trouble finding a name i like better than that one.. he LOVES hunter.. and im just not for it. any ways! this got long! sorry loL thanks for your replies!

Good for you both for sticking to your guns. DH's cousin is considering Nikolai and I don't like it for them because my DH is Nick and, IMO, Niko is too close to Nick. It is cute though.

I'm glad you're not using his top pick as a first name. It reminds me of aioli.

I love Niko as a nn -- very nice. :) We know a few Nikkos, so it's not 'weird' to me.
