Nordid is a typological classification used by dark age anthropologists of the German school (think pith helmets and monocles). Emcee von Eickstedt and Bertil "Funky Iceman" Lundman pretty much popularized the term. Lundy was a Swede and I think he was the one who actually coined the -id stuff-- Eickstedt and his disciples just ran with it.
Nordic can mean a host of different things. As usual, it's context, context, context.

I have seen people use Noric as a classification tho
Noric is a rare classification, only used for specific sub-types of Nordids. They are very rare, they're phenotype is considered 'classical' (kind of like the prototype of Nords). It is very strict: You must have flaxen /white gold hair, blazing blue eyes (not pale or regular blue) or steel grey. In other words, picture and even more idealized version of the German 'super race'.
