This name is probably a blend of Ioannes (which is the hellenized form of the Hebrew name Yochanan) with the Greek word νικη (nike) meaning "victory". Since this is evidently a Christian name, where Ioannes refers to either John the Baptist or the apostle John, one could say that the meaning of this name is roughly "John is victorious".
