Etymology of the name NILS.
Meaning of the baby name NILS.

  

NILS.  A Swedish contracted form of Nicolas (q.v.), meaning "victor of the people."

... Nils is the only real Nicolaus except Klaus used in the North, though Niel, and even Nigel, are sometimes confounded with it...
... Njal's likeness to the contraction Nils, has caused many to suppose that Njal is also a form of Nicolas, but the existence of Nial both in Ireland and Iceland before the conversion of either country contradicts this. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
