I'm sorry for your loss, but so glad you're back!

I vote Niko with the K. It makes it so much more masculine. Of course I'm partial to that name because I'm married to a Niko (and he is FAB! Sexy, sensitive . . . ah, swoon). He is Greek so that is his given name. When I first met him, honestly I thought he was just trying to be cool or something, like it was really Nicholas.

Ha, I just now fully read Dr. Kae's response about the C vs. K being more masculine. She's probably right that American culture views K as more feminine, like Kris vs. Chris. I didn't even think about that.

Jody, I am so excited for you and your family! And also amused that you put my son's first and middle names on your list: Charles Isaac.

I think keeping his first name is a good idea, but I definitely would americanize it to the closest equivalent English-language name (Nicholas?). My husband and his brother immigrated to the U.S. from Russia when they were young children (ages 7 and 2), and their parents americanized the spelling and pronunciation of both of their names, as well as the parents' own names. I think this was extremely helpful in allowing them to fit in to American society.

I adore the nickname Nico, and I would spell it with a C. I think Nicholas Barnaby is just adorable.

What a roller coaster you seem to be on.
