I think this name is very serious sounding. It's my husband's name and he is in the army.

I think this name related with Victory. My fiancee's name is Victor and he is victorious...

Johnny Depp's character in "The Corpse Bride" is called Victor, as is the vampire elder in "Underworld" but his is spelt with a K and not a C.

That name is so hot.
A musical starring Julie Andrews is called "Victor/Victoria."

My grandpa's name is Victor. To me it seems like an older name, but a strong name. Victor is a name for someone who is very smart and honest.

I LOVE the name Victor. I want to name my son, if I have one, Victor. I also like the Russian spelling Viktor. Looks authentic.

Victor is such a nice name, and it's masculine-sounding.

Victor Krum is a character in Harry Potter. He is a surly, Bulgarian national quidditch player with a hook nose and a crush on Hermione Granger. That is all I can think about when I hear this name now.

That was Viktor not Victor Krum.

Victor is an awesome name! I don't know any Victors but I'm pretty sure if I did, he'd be really cool!

I'm shocked no one has mentioned Victor Frankenstein, from Mary Shelley's wonderful novel.

Victor Babeş (1854 — 1926) was a Romanian physician, biologist, and one of the earliest bacteriologists. He made early and significant contributions to the study of rabies, leprosy, diphtheria, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases. The Babeş-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca bears his name, as does the disease babesiosis.

I know it may be weird but my great grandmother was named Victor-Mae (seriously). She was named after her father (Victor). I personally think it was kind of a cute name. You know it's just different. But everyone says she didn't like it much though. =/

From Latin Victor, from victus, past participle of vincere, "to conquer."

Victor Frankenstein from Mary Woolstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein. He's the scientist, NOT the evil grunting monster that Hollywood has presented to us (stupid Hollywood always twists the tales WAY too far!). The monster is actually very intelligent - he speaks French - and has no name.

A famous bearer was Danish-American Victor Borge (January 3, 1909 - December 23, 2000), a humorist, pianist, and comedy entertainer. He was called the Clown Prince of Denmark and the Great Dane.

DC's character 'the Question' was named Charles Victor Szasz. Though he Prefers to go by Vic Sage instead.
BlackMartian923  10/1/2008
I don't know why I like the name Victor, but I do. Victor sounds refined and sophisticated, but also down to earth and rugged at the same time.

Vítězslav is the Czech equivalent of Victor.
Víťazoslav is the Slovak equivalent of Victor.
Vitoslav is old Slavonic equivalent.

Huckery, bulky and mothballed. At least that's how it comes across to me.

"Victor" is also the code word for the letter "V" in the NATO phonetic alphabet.

A famous bearer is Marvel's supervillain Dr. Victor von Doom.

This would make a jewel of a middle name, but still I can't shake the image of a nerd when I hear this name. Might be because in the awesome movie Despicable Me, the nerdy villain character had the name Victor, but then he did change it to Vector (Committing crimes with both direction and magnitude! Oh yeah!)

Victor Elpidiforovich Borisov-Musatov (April 14 [O.S. April 2] 1870 - November 8 [O.S. October 26] 1905) was a Russian painter, prominent for his unique Post-Impressionistic style that mixed Symbolism, pure decorative style and realism.

Name history is important and recording it in history is a Victory 'to the spoils goes the Victor'

More than "Vittore", the most common usage of the name, the only one being used is "Vittorio" (italian).

... but why portray Victor as villain?

Hello! I currently am pregnant. I've chosen to name my baby Victor if I have a boy! The reason I love this name so much starts with my grandfather Victor Dorwin. He fought at D-Day in WWII and survived. He was a medic. He was shot and still saved as many of his men as he could. He received 2 Purple Hearts. Most humble man I ever knew. He took me fishing as a child, most patient man & he had 6 kids. 2 sets of boy girl twins. Yes, he is my Hero! An amazing husband.. father & grandpa. I miss him. He is VICTORY. In all aspects in my life! This name means honor & dedication. I believe one man can make this name amazing & my grandpa did. :) Peace.
Angey7  9/1/2015
Does anyone think that it is tedious to say it means "Victor", they should say, from the Latin word Victor... Anyway, I like the name and I think the cognate Viktor is a little better spelling.

Victor Frankenstein from Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein.
cziehl  4/5/2016
I like this name, especially pronounced with a British accent. Slightly pronouncing the -r.
cziehl  4/5/2016
In my opinion Victor is a handsome and rugged name. I also love the sound of it and love the nicknames such as Vic or V and the full name sounds strong too.
― Anonymous User  5/12/2016
I love the name Victor! It's awesome! And the characters named Victor are really great too. Dr. Victor Frankenstein, the mad scientist who created Frankenstein's Monster, was a classic anti-hero with this name. The reason I call him an anti-hero and not a full-blown villain is because he thought he was doing good. His intentions were whole-hearted and loving, the outcome, a disaster. Or Dr. Victor Von Doom, the evil genius turned into a mad man. He was left out to die because he made a few wrong moves, which turned him into a disfigured magical antagonist who spends his time fighting the Fantastic Four, also magical beings with great power.

Although Victor is the canon name of Victor Nikiforov (Yuri! On Ice), Viktor is also used in the fandom as it's more accurate.

This is always a name that people give those evil doctors in movies and TV shows.

Victor is a character in the Disney animated film "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". He is one of the gargoyles made of stone that come to life at will.

My elder son is Victor and he is intelligent indeed. I could not name the second son Victor too, so I opted for a "V" name and Vallerian becomes my baby boy. Now guess what mum names herself... Anne Victor Vallerian. Ideally Victor is a name.
