Meaning of the name:

From the Greek nikê, "victory", and laos, "people", it means "victorious people".
Saint Colette reformed the Poor Clares with the support of Pope Urban IV. She died in Belgium in 1447. This name derived from Nicole is very common outside the French-speaking countries where it emerged in the 30s to reach the fifth favorite French female name. The international recognition of the budding wheat writer and The Cat certainly contributed to this success. Romanesque and eccentric, Colette appeals to parents precursors.
The Colette are celebrated on March 6th.
Its derivatives: Coline, Cosette, Nicole.
