St Nick was Greek. That much is fairly inarguable. Whether there was different ethnicity in the general region at the time could be argued. But that ethnicity being Turk of all things is impossible.

They didn't arrive in that region until many centuries later in the middle ages.
He was Greek speaking because of the regions cultural heritage, but being of Greek ethnic origins is not so easy to determine.

It has been the east/west 'crossroads' for eons, he could have been an A-rab.
