Share Your Thoughts on this Name
This is my sons name. It sure would have been nice to know the origin and meaning of it.
I've looked up several different websites, here's the meaning and origin.
From the Latin Nicolaus, a derivative of the Greek Nikolaos (victory of the people), a compound name composed of the elements nikē (victory) and laos (the people). The name was borne by St. Nicholas, a 4th-century bishop of Myra who is regarded as the patron saint of Russia and Greece, and of children, sailors, and wolves.
My son's name is Nicholas.
My son's middle name is Nicholas, after my younger brother.
