Other Origin(s):Danish, Greek
Meaning:To test; Sign; Victory of the people
Nis is a gender-neutral name of mainly Hebrew origin, and although it may seem pint-sized, it still packs a punch! In Hebrew, the name Nis means “to test.” It’s also said to be borrowed from the Hebrew name Nissa, which translates to “sign.” Expecting parents can delight in its Danish roots, too, as it may come from the name Nils, short for Nicholas, meaning “victory of the people” in Greek. Whichever meaning makes a mark on your little one, let Nis be their sign that greatness awaits.
