Meaning & History
Late Greek form of Victor, as well as the original Georgian form of Victor. Biktor is considered an old and rare name in both Georgia and Greece. In Georgia, this is because Viktor has become the dominant form there, probably due to the influence that Russia has had on the country. As for Greece: Viktor (written as Βίκτωρ) is also the dominant form there now, but for a different reason. The pronunciation of the first letter of the name (the beta) has changed over time: it was a 'b' in ancient Greek, but it is a 'v' in modern Greek. As such, Βίκτωρ was Biktor in older times, but it is Viktor in modern times.
