Is Nikon a proper name in Greek? Possibly a variant of Nikola/Nikolas, which, I think, is a Croatian first name, with variants everywhere.

The etymology is not the same (Nikon is written with omega, not omicron so Νικων) so no relation to Nikolas (who has his feast day on the 6th of December so definitely considered another saint).

I must say that I was not aware of saint Nikon until I saw this road sign last June
