Nucleophilicity is the phenomenon of attacking of an nucleophile on an electron deficient compounds.

Nucleophilicity increases with the increase in electronegativity. So elements which have more electro-vity are more strong nucleophile.

So you can predict the order of nucleophilicity.

"Philic" means loving. So, a nucleophile is a one which is nucleus loving. They mosty have a negative charge on them and are in need of a positive charge. A nucleophile which cannot hold the negative charge, and is in a desperate or in a more need of a positive charge is a strong nucleophile, while a nucleophile which can hold the negative charge, is a weak electrophile.

Generally, strong electronegative atoms are weak nucleophile. So, a strong nucleophile is one which is more electro-positive.
