Other Origin(s):Greek
Meaning:Victory of the people
Nikolaus is a boy’s name of German origin, borrowed beautifully from the Greek name Nikolaos, meaning “victory of the people.” While Nikolaus might seem a little more built for the battlefield, it’s actually a name that’s most notable for pioneers in engineering and history. Nikolaus Otto was the first to discover a practical alternative to the steam engine. Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, a German-British art historian, was best known for his influential book series The Buildings of England. Some may say you can't win at everything, but anything is possible for your little Nikolaus!
