Its source is Nikolaos, a Greek name meaning "Victorious people."
The name Nickolas ranked 307th in popularity for males of all ages in a sample of 2000-2003 Social Security Administration statistics and 671st in popularity for males of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
Though this name appears on the 1990 U.S. Census lists, it is used by only a small percentage of the general population.
This name, like the female names Berenice and Veronica, contains an element derived from Nike, the name of the Greek goddess of victory.
