My sister's name is Tori, and it's not short for Victoria. It's just Tori. She hates it, but I think it's cool.

Another person who has this name is "Tori Amos" most famous for playing piano and singing.

Tori Amos' real name is Myra Ellen Amos. She started to go by Tori after a friend told her that she looked more like a Tori than a Myra Ellen.

This is my best friend's name. I like it a lot!
-- libbygirl  9/11/2006
I prefer this over the name Victoria. Other spellings are Torie, Toree, Torey, Torie and Tory.

It is also the short form of Torianna.

My name is Victoria, and my family calls me Tori. I don't really like Tori, but that's probably word assosciation (when my parents were angry, they'd call me Tori -- otherwise it was "Tora-Lora" or something.) I'm looking for a new nickname besides Tori and Vicky. But overall, I think it's a good name to have. It's short, urban and chic.

My name is Victoria but I go by Tori for short. Some of my friends call me Vikki or Torrie but to most it's Tori.

When I think of the name Tori I think of a very confident and pretty girl. The name is very feminine and delicate to me.
-- Honeyrose  6/16/2007
Why hello! I think Tori is a very flowy and complex and delicate name. It is QUITE emotional.

I had a cat named Tori. :) It would be a nice name for a human as well.
-- Coffeebean  10/8/2007
My real name is Tory. Not Victoria, which bugs me when people say it is. All my friends associate 'Tory' with a clumsy genius with glasses and zits.
-- dellafiora3395  10/23/2007
I am often called this by my friends, because my real name is Victoria. It's a pretty cool name. Spunky, yet not girly or cold like Victoria.

The only thing bad is, if you're in middle school, you're going to learn about the Revolutionary War, and colonists in the 13 colonies that supported the British were called "Tories". They called me this during the entire lesson. Annoying as hell.

I'm not saying you shouldn't name your kid Tori because of this reason. Just beware.

In the English adaption of the anime series Cardcaptor Sakura, the main character's elder brother is named Tori (Toya in the original). (Hence I am used to thinking of this as a male name, despite the unlikely 'ee' sound on the end.)
-- Weaponstar  2/12/2008
This is a much better nickname for Victoria than Vicki and variants, but British and Canadian politics have basically ruined this name completely. It's also good to remember that this isn't a great full first name anyway, as it sounds just as youthful and girly as Kori, Keri, and the likes.
-- slight night shiver  5/10/2008
My name's Tori. When I was younger I hated it. I also hated being named after Tori Spelling (which I still hate.) But now I love my name. It's not very common. I live in a small town and I have yet to find someone with the name Tori besides myself. And no, my real name is not Victoria. It annoys me so much when people fight with me about what MY name is. "Your real name can't be Tori. It's Victoria. You're lying." Shut up. My name's Tori. Want to see my birth certificate? But I love my name. It's original.

I adopted a kitten whose name was Tory. I forgot how they spelt it so I spelled it with the I at the end, not realizing that Tori is derived from the beautiful name Victoria. I really like the classy name. Tori is cuter for youngsters.
-- tara426  3/4/2009
Nice.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2009
Tori means "derived from Victoria triumphant".

My name is Tori and I'm a male so I don't necessarily like that the name is not neutral on here rather than just only being feminine.
-- Atoridsp  3/18/2011
I don't like Victoria, but I do LOOOOVE Tori.
-- Joy12  5/6/2011
"Victoria" is bad enough without this atrocity of a nickname.
It is simply so infantile, so childish, so unprofessional, so unattractive... it terribly resembles a toddler sibling giving first attempts at pronouncing the new baby's name.

Despite preaching my disgust for "Victoria," I would still rather it (without any diminutives.) Furthermore, the Italian form "Vittoria" offers aid in that it is moderately better than the two previous mentioned. (Regardless, the "-toria" within it still gets beneath my skin.)
-- Francesca  2/5/2012
It is also extremely default and generic.

How on earth is the name Victoria childish?! I've never heard that one before. If you want childish, look at all the idiots giving their poor children "names" like Kaylee, braelyn, and neveah. Victoria is a beautiful, classic name that's been around for centuries. There was even a queen with this name, so I don't really see how it could be unprofessional! If you want to insult a name, at least insult one that deserves it. Victoria is a beautiful name, and will definitely be taken seriously in the real world. I know this isn't the page for Victoria, but I just felt like that was totally rude and unnecessary. That being said, I like Tori as a nickname, although I prefer Victoria by itself. Vicky is just ugly though. But Tori as a real name... No. That's unprofessional. It's like naming you daughter Lizzie.

If you name your kid Tori, don't be surprised that she'll grow up to be a porn star.
