Origin of the name Niko


NYC5

Recommended Posts

Found out that the name Niko stands for "Victory of the People". It is also short for Nikolaus. It's origin is Greek, German, and Finnish. Don't see Russian in there. What do you guys say?

I think it's a Russian name. Where did you look it up? Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is such a reliable source, I get all my information from there.

 

I had no clue that Cuba still has control over Florida.

 

I also dident know that quote "George Bush looks like a monkey."

Niko is most likely short for Nikolai in our Niko's case. Nikolai is a Russian variant of Nikolaus but still, his birth name was not Nikolaus.

Niko is short for Nikolai, as in the trailer when you hear someone say "Nikolai" obviously refering to him.

Does anyone know what Niko says in the beginning of trailer 3, with Roman? Something like "brafo batsoroo".

Yeah but does anyone know what it means?

 

Maybe "bravo" as in "good job", and "batsoroo" as in "cousin"?

that sounded to me like "zdravo burazeru"

 

zdravo - hello

 

burazer - Serbian slang for brother

 

 

its hard to tell, though.

Yeh thats what it sounded like to me. Also I think there is russian links to the name Niko, like Nikolai. Anyway name origins usually mean nothing, I mean my name is...Scottish. And its usually not even used as a first name. anyway thanx for the research. icon14.gif

It means Hello Cousin, well at least thats what this Serbian guy said on Youtube and he said it's serbian-croation. I think Niko looks rish, like a drunk.
