Nicola (f) This is the Italian form of Nicholas, the Italian feminine form being Nicoletta. Nicola is now well established as a girls’ name in Britain; elsewhere in the English-speaking world the French feminine form Nicole is preferred. Nicola was the name given to only 25 girls born in Scotland in 1958. Since then it has taken Scotland by storm. It has also been immensely successful in England and Wales since 1955. Other feminine forms of Nicholas used in Scotland include Nichole and Nicolette, the latter leading to Colette or Collette.
