Nickodemus


Anyone know where the name Nickodemus came from? I've been Googling around, but just keep coming up with stuff about a dj and a band. I also have a Reggae song called Neckodeemus by the Congos on a cd.
Was Nickodemus in Baum's writings, and if so where did he get get the name?

NICODEMUS

From the Greek name Nikodemos which meant "victory of the people" from Greek (nike) "victory" and (demos) "the people". This was the name of a character in the New Testament who helped Joseph of Arimathea entomb Jesus.
