Since it's a name you can leave it as it is! Alternatively, you can transliterate it in Greek alphabet

This is the *equivalent* of the name Nicole in Greek. It would be wise to use its Greek transliterated form though, which is Νικόλ.

"Nicole" comes from ancient Greek.

The name "Nicole" is actually a variant on a name that has existed in Greek for 2,000 years and more.

The original form is Nikolaos (a man's name).

The lapse of time and the linguistic changes, typical when French speakers and Anglophones borrowed the name and re-applied it to women, produced the spelling and pronunciation that you now know.
