Meaning:Victory of the people
Nick is a boy's name of Greek origin, meaning "victory of the people."

This name is the short form of Nicholas, which is often associated with the Greek saint, Nicholas. Also known as Nicholas of Bari, he became a patron of children and a gift-giver because of the many stories from his life. We now know of this magical saint as the origin of Santa Claus.
