The surname Nicolle was a patronymic
name created from the personal name
Nicola, or Nicholas. The Italian name Nicola is itself derived from the Latin Nicolaus, and ultimately the Greek Nikolaos, which is composed of the elements "nikan," which means "to win," and "laos," meaning "people." As a personal name
, versions of this name are found throughout Europe due to devotion to several saints who bore the name, especially Saint Nicholas. The most common type of family name found in the region of Venice
is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name. In Italy the popularity of the patronymic type of surname is also due to the fact that during the Christian era, people often named their children after saints and biblical figures.
Early Origins of the Nicolle family
The surname Nicolle was first found in the historically rich region of Venice
. The surname Nicolle has its origins in the city of Verona, which lies about halfway between Venice
and Milan, in the region of Veneto. The Nichesola family in 1162 was part of the nobility of Verona, and maintained their status in the noble council until 1406 when the title was taken away. The title was renewed, with apologies from the court, four hundred
years later. The Nicola family in Venice
in the 12th century was one of the most ancient and most noble families in the city at the time. In 1184 Marco Nicola was given the title of Bishop of the Castle and contributed to the beauty of the city by having erected the church and monastery of St. Andrea.
