I first heard this name when I watched the film "Sometimes In April," a powerful drama centered on the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. Victorine was a young student, a lesser character, but this name stuck with me.

I like this name so much! It's refreshing after the more common "Victoria".

Victorine Chaudanson was a first class passenger aboard the RMS Titanic. She was the 37 year old personal maid of Mrs Emily Maria Ryerson, and was travelling with Arthur Ryerson and Emily and their children, Emily, Suzette and John. Though Arthur Ryerson perished in the disaster, Victorine and the other members of the Ryerson family survived the sinking. Victorine and Emily Ryerson play a semi-prominent part in the famous novel about the sinking, "A Night to Remember" by Walter Lord.
She later married Henry Perkins and lived out the rest of her life in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. She died in August 1962 at the age of 86.
