Comments for NICHOLAS:

Saint Nicholas was never canonized as a saint but rather it was a title given to him by the people when he was still alive.

Actually, Saint Nicolas was originaly not the bringer of Christmas gifts. He used to (and still does in many countries) have his own holiday. When Dutch and British settles came to America, Sinterklaas (another name for the Dutch name Sint Nicolaas) and the British Father Christmas combined/were messed up and became Santa Claus.

Nicholas , "ÍÉÊÏËÁÏÓ" (NIKOLAOS) in Greek, is derived from the characterisation "O ËÁÏÓ ÔÇÓ ÍÉÊÇÓ" : O LAOS TIS NIKIS, which in Greek means "the people of victory", actually meaning "the victorious people".
-- basil  5/19/2006
Sorry guys, I did not know that Greek spelling does not appear. So, Nicholas comes from the ancient Greek name "Nikolaos", which has its synthetical origin from the characterisation "O LAOS TIS NIKIS", meaning "the people of victory" or rather "the victorious people". This is the exact meaning.

My dad's name is Nicholas which he shortens it to Nick. What I hate is that a lot of people think he spells Nick Nich, but I have never met anyone named Nick spelled like that! I think it fits him.
-- lauren_somebody  6/11/2006

I'm English and looking at this website I spell my name Nicholas with an H and it really winds me up when people spell it NICOLAS because that isn't even English so get it right!

I don't really like it. It sounds very English and upperclass like Richard, Michael and Jonathon.

I had strongly considered this name for my baby, but a family name won over. I still love this name, it's a strong name, pretty, and sexy. Sounds like a clever person, too.

Nick Collins, a free safety for the Green Bay Packers, is one of the up-and-coming stars of pro-football. He went to my high school (several years before me) and is a real hometown hero, so the name Nicholas fits him pretty well! I've always liked the name, but Nick has made me like it even more!
-- britto08  3/18/2009
I like this name a lot. I'd nickname them Nick or when they're little Nicky. This name sounds strong and wholesome.

My sons name is Nicholas and he is 7 years old. When I hear the name Nicholas I think of a handsome boy or man with a cheeky/charming personality. This description matches my son Nicholas perfectly. I think it's a great name. Nicknames my son gets are Nick, Spud-Nick, Nicky etc.

I love the name Nicholas. It's handsome, masculine, adorable, and a timeless classic with plenty of nickname options. Plus it's just really fun to say. Nicholas, Nicholas, Nicholas... yep, got a ring to it. I like it.
-- LittleSamGirl  8/18/2011
Nicholas is my all-time favorite male name. It seems perfect. For me it brings thoughts of a tall, attractive, strong man who is smart and comical, but can be serious if need be. I usually hate nicknames (funny that I hate 'nick'names) but love "Nick" for a nickname. Go figure.
-- GibsonGirl  8/18/2011
Yeah, this is a nice name. But the other day, my friend was trying to tell me a story about something that happened to her, and there was not one, not two, but THREE Nicks involved which made it very hard to understand! It took forever to finish the story because I was confused about what Nick she was talking about every time she said "Nick"! Anyway, it was pretty comical, and lead me to believe thoroughly that this name has been used waaaaay too much!

Nicholas is a great name. It's classic, yet not boring. The nickname Nick has always reminded me of a strong, good-looking guy, and Nicky is adorable for a little boy.

I love this name, along with the nickname Nick, although unfortunately there aren't very many people who just go by Nicholas. It's a classic name that to my surprise was extremely popular in the 90's. I mean, I knew it was popular, but I didn't know it had been in the top 10. Despite it's popularity, I've only known one person named Nicholas, (nick) and one boy named Nicolas, who went by his full name. I prefer Nicholas personally.
-- Anonymous User  2/18/2013
Nicholas is not used in French, only Nicolas.
-- lillinparadise  2/26/2013
I love Nicholas. I wish more people would go by Nicholas rather than Nick. Nick is nice too, but nowhere near as handsome as Nicholas, in my opinion :)
-- Oohvintage  7/18/2013
This is one of those names that sound lovely in the full version (Nicholas), but have been kind of ruined by the nicknames (Nick). To me, Nick sounds like a guy from a 90s boy band! Nicholas, on the other hand, sounds strong and handsome.
