Colette Given Name Meaning & History

GENDER: Feminine; USAGE: French; PRONOUNCED: KAW-LET. Short form of NICOLETTE. Saint Colette was a 15th-century French nun who gave her money to the poor. This was also the pen name of the French author Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954). Origin French: Victory of the people. Along with names like Babette and Nanette, Colette was among the -ette naming trend that was popular in the 1950s. It is mostly used in English and French, in English-speaking countries it has been used since the middle of the 20th century. It might be related to the Greek goddess of victory, Nike. It can be used as a surname as well. — Colette is a French female name; essentially a double-diminutive of Nicole by way of Nicolette. Nicole is, of course, the feminine form of Nicholas, which is the French and English form of Nikolaos, from the Greek Νικολαος, meaning, quite literally, “people of victory,” composed of the Greek elements nike “victory” and laos “people.” — This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Nīkólāos ‎(Νῑκόλᾱος)”, composed of two elements: “nī́kē ‎(νῑ́κη)” (victory, success) plus “lāós (λᾱός)” (people, people assembled). In turn, the name means “victory of the people”. The Eastern Orthodox Church, the Roman Catholic Church, and the Anglican Churches celebrate Saint Nicholas every year on December 6, which is the name day for “Nicholas”. In Greece, the name and its derivatives are especially popular in maritime regions, as St. Nicholas is considered the protector saint of seafarers. Saint Nicholas was a historic 4th-century Christian saint and Greek Bishop of Myra (Demre, part of modern-day Turkey) in Lycia. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas, itself from a series of elisions and corruptions of the transliteration of “Saint Nikolaos”. Famous Colettes: Colette – novelist, Colette Khuri – writer, Colette Wickenhagen – jazz artist.
