This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Nīkólāos (Νῑκόλᾱος),” composed of two elements: “nī́kē (νῑ́κη)” (victory, success) plus “lāós (λᾱός)” (people, people assembled). In turn, the name means “victory of the people.” The Eastern Orthodox Church, the Roman Catholic Church, and the Anglican Churches celebrate St. Nicholas on 6 December, in honor of Nicholas. In Greece, the name and its variants are trendy in regions near the sea, as St. Nicholas is the patron saint of seafarers. Saint Nicholas was a historic 4th-century Christian saint and Greek Bishop of Myra (Demre, part of modern-day Turkey) in Lycia. Having the reputation of the one who gives secret gifts thus became Santa Claus’s model, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas, is nothing more than a corrupt transliteration of “St. Nikolaos.”
