Aiko Nakamura (?, Nakamura Aiko) (born 28 December 1983), is a Japanese former professional tennis player. In July 2008, she was the second highest WTA-ranked Japanese singles tennis player, at No. 107, after Ai Sugiyama.

Nakamura was born in Tenn?ji-ku, Osaka. Like her role-model Monica Seles, she had a double-handed forehand and backhand, but served right-handed. She won four singles and three doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. In 2006, she reached the final of the Japan Open in Tokyo, where she lost to Marion Bartoli in three sets.

Nakamura also played for Japan's Fed Cup team. She retired from professional tennis in 2012.
