Alternate spellings: Viktoria, Tori, Vickie, Vicky
Here’s a clue for you, sleuths: Victoria’s meaning hides in plain sight. Victoria’s the female version of the name Victor, and both mean – what, did you give up already? We’ll tell you later. Queen Victoria gave this name its regal air, but it was always a winner. It’s never fallen outside the 200s since the 1880s, and it’s spent quite a bit of time up top…in fact, it’s been in the top 100 since 1981. Victoria Beckham hasn’t given her name the victory it’s been after – that coveted top 10 spot. Nicknames Vicki and Tori shrug off some of that nose-in-the-air Victorian attitude, but still carry the same meaning, which is – okay, okay – “Victor.” Of course. Come on.
