MCNICKLE Family History

Recorded in many forms including MacNicol, McNicol, McNichol, McNickle and others, this is a Scottish surname of great antiquity. It originates from the Gaelic MacNeacail, meaning "son of Nicol". Nicol is derived from the Ancient Greek "Nikolaos", and means literally "The conquering people" . The name was popular among Christians throughout Europe in the Middle Ages, largely as a result of the fame of a 4th Century Lycian bishop, about whom a large number of legends grew up, and who was venerated in the Orthodox Church as well as the Catholic.
