Meaning & Origins

English form of the post-classical Greek personal name Nikolaos, derived from nikē ‘victory’ + laos ‘people’. The spelling with -ch- first occurred as early as the 12th century, and became firmly established at the time of the Reformation, although Nicolas is still occasionally found. St Nicholas was a 4th-century bishop of Myra in Lycia, about whom virtually nothing factual is known, although a vast body of legend grew up around him, and he became the patron saint of Greece and of Russia, as well as of children, sailors, merchants, and pawnbrokers. His feast day is 6 December, and among the many roles which legend has assigned to him is that of bringer of Christmas presents, in the guise of ‘Santa Claus’ (an alteration of the Dutch form of his name, Sinterklaas).
127th in the U.S.
English: habitational name from Bridgwater in Somerset; the water which the bridge at Bridgwater crosses is the Parrett river, but the place name actually derives from Brigewaltier, i.e. ‘Walter's bridge’, after Walter de Dowai, the 12th-century owner.
7,895th in the U.S.
