Hey everyone, Ever wonder what your name means? I found a cool website that will tell you. Check it out and report back: http://www.behindthename.com/ NICHOLAS (m) "victory people" (Greek). Saint Nicholas was a 4th-century bishop who, according to legend, saved the daughters of a poor man from lives of prostitution. He is now known as Santa Claus, the bringer of Christmas presents. He is the patron saint of children, sailors and merchants, and Greece and Russia. Nicholas was also the name of two czars of Russia and five popes.
