User comments for Nikolaos
Saint Nikolaos (Santa Claus in USA) (270 - 6th December, 346) is the common name for Nikolaos of Myra, a saint and Bishop of Myra (in Lycia, part of modern-day Turkey). Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker. 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 English name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas.
Nikolaos Michaloliakos is the name of the leader of Greece's antisemitic, fascist Golden Dawn party.
