The name Nick is of Greek origins and it is traditionally used by parents who are looking for a name for their son. Nick is the diminutive form of Nicholas, which has in turn been taken from the Greek name Nikolaos. The name Nicholas has been formed by constituting the two elements of the Greek language ‘nikē’, meaning ‘victory’ and ‘laos’, meaning ‘people’. Thus, according to its Greek origins, the meaning of Nick is ‘victory of the people’. The name became popular with the highly revered saint, Saint Nicholas, who is considered as the inspiration for Santa Claus. In ancient Greek mythology, Nike is considered to be the goddess of victory, further strengthening the meaning of the name. Notable public figures known to have this name are Nick Drake, an English singer, and songwriter, and Nick Jonas, an American singer, songwriter, and actor as well as a member of the famous 'Jonas Brothers' band.
