Meaning & History

Means "carrying victory" from Greek νικη (nike) meaning "victory" and φερω (phero) meaning "to carry, to bear". This name was borne by several Byzantine emperors, including the 10th-century Nikephoros II Phokas. Besides being a masculine personal name, it was also a title borne by the goddess Athena.
