niklas

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
Nī́Kē ‎LāóS > NīKóLāOS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
Nī́Kē ‎(νῑ́κη) LāóS (λᾱός) NīKóLāOS ‎(Νῑκόλᾱος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “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 Saint Nicholas every year on December 6, which is the name day for "Nicholas". In Greece, the name and its derivatives are especially popular in maritime regions, as St. Nicholas is considered the protector 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. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas, itself from a series of elisions and corruptions of the transliteration of "Saint Nikolaos".
