My husband wants to name our son "Nico". I would like to name him Nicolas and call him Nico for short, however, Nicholas is such a common name. Are there any other names that could be shortened to "Nico" as a nickname?

oh and Dominic would work nicely for the nickname Nico..

However, if your're still insistant that Nicolas is just too popular for you, I do think that you should use Nicolai. It's a nice Eastern European variant of Nicolas. I also think its a name that will be easier for little kids to pronounce, where as Nicodemus is not. Dominic, nick name Nico, is OK but I'm not thrilled with it. All the Dominics I know go by Dom.

I also like Dominic with Nico as a nickname. I know a couple of Dominics who are called Nick, and it's never seemed to be an issue.
Other names that Nico could be short for (and I do think Nico is pretty nicknamey):
