Meaning:the 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 "the victory of the people." Both names are inspired by the great goddess Nike who embodies victory in any worthy field, be it music, art, war, or athletics. Yet far more than a representative, Nike was often depicted as being the deciding judge of excellence in god and mortal alike. Such discerning roots will certainly encourage Nicolas to set the standard in every arena.
