Not that it matters much, but St Nicholas as a Turk takes far more imagination than you're attributing to anyone else.

That'd be like saying Sitting Bull was white because most of the people who now live where he did are white.

He was Greek. Obviously not like the pasty white fictional transfiguration we have today. But certainly not Turk.
