Meaning of the baby name NICHOLAS.

  

NICHOLAS.  English form of Greek Nikolaos (q.v.), meaning "victor of the people."  Usage: America, England, Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland.
    Nicholas Ball (d. 1865), was an Irish barrister, judge and Liberal politician.  Nicholas Herbert Stern, a British academic and economist. (Wiki)

... St. Nicholas is said to have supplied three destitute maidens with marriage portions by secretly leaving money at their window, and as his day occurred just before Christmas, he thus was made the purveyor of the gifts of the season to all children in Flanders and Holland, who put out their shoe or stocking in the confidence that Santa Klaus or Knecht Clobes, as they call him, will put in a prize for good conduct before the morning. 
     A saint of both the East and West, with a history so endearing, and legends still more homely and domestic, Nicholas was certain of many followers throughout Christendom, and his name came into use in Europe among the first of the sainted ones. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
