Nicolas

people of victory
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 352
Sometimes it’s better without the “h.” Many parents agree because Nicolas is gaining ground on Nicholas, the classic Greek name derived from Nike, the goddess of victory (and sneakers!). Nicolas, the preferred spelling in France and Spanish-speaking countries, has been a crowd favorite in Europe since the 14th century thanks to saints and clergy members with the name. Closer to home, actor Nicolas Cage has popularized the spelling. If you’re on the fence about naming your son Nicolas—just do it!
