Meaning:Victory of the people
No stranger to acclaim, Nicolas stands forth as a masculine name with serious bragging power. Greek in origin, Nicolas is a variant of Nikolaos and means "victory of the people." Both names are derived from the Greek element nī́kē, which translates to “victory,” perhaps representing the Greek goddess Nike, who embodies victory in many fields. Just as the Greek goddess of victory was often depicted as a mediator of success between gods and mortals, little Nicolas can set the standard for triumph in their own life.
