    English form of Johannes, which was the Latin form of the Greek name ??a???? (Ioannes), itself derived from the Hebrew name Yochanan meaning "YAHWEH is gracious". This name owes its consistent popularity to two New Testament characters, both highly revered as saints. The first was John the Baptist, the forerunner of Jesus Christ and a victim of beheading by Herod Antipas. The second was the apostle John, also supposedly the author of the fourth Gospel and Revelation. The name has been borne by 23 popes, as well as kings of England, Hungary, Poland, Portugal and France. It was also borne by the poet John Milton and the philosopher John Locke

    My name Nicolas is not biblical either though the description Nicolaitans exists in Revelation but in an ill famed way. It comes from later 4th century Christainity, it being the name of a Christian saint.
