This is a very cool name!
My name is Victor. I am a 20yr old male, I’m not the most intelligent but that’s ok. My mom said she named me Victor because I conquered my birth. My parents were drug addicts before and a little while after having me. They said I went through withdrawal pretty badly, but here I am today. Victorious! My parents are victorious too! They quit doing drugs about 5 or so months after having me.
I highly enjoy this name! I think it is very simple but in a good way. Maybe strange to some people but Victor Frankenstein is actually part of the reason why I really enjoy this name. :).
Nice and handsome name for a male of any age.
Victor Fries is the real name of Batman supervillain Mr. Freeze. Before gaining superpowers, he was married to a woman named Nora, who was sadly diagnosed with a terminal illness. He cryogenically froze her body until he could find a cure. Then, a lab accident mutated his body to only survive in sub-zero temperatures, starting this career as a supervillain.
The best way that I can describe this name is that I feel it perfectly toes the line of traditionally masculine and sophisticated. It's "elegant" but also "manly" is what my personal impression has always been. A good, solid, classical choice for any would-be parents.
Two fictional characters come to mind:
Victor von Gerdenheim, a character from Capcom's Darkstalkers series, who is based off Frankenstein's Monster.
And Victor, the male protagonist from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, though the latter's name can be changed in Sword and Shield to be whatever the player wants it to be.
I really like this name! It has a nice meaning, and it's a pretty handsome name. Vic is a good nickname.
Also Romansh.

I tend to like names based on what they sound like and what they remind me of more than their actual meaning. Victor reminds me of the word nectar, so I think of summer fruit and I think of it as a nature name. I don’t like the actual meaning because it reminds me of war and conquering, and that is not a positive association for me.
Rough.
I love, love, LOOOOVE the name Victor. It's totally a one-size-fits-all kind of name. I find it easy to picture the name Victor suiting a boy of any age and personality type, whether it'd be a spunky little boy, a bookish yet alluring young man, or the witty grandpa who tells the best stories to his grandchildren. I also like how distinguished it sounds; it commands respect. Victor is definitely one of my top choices when it comes to baby names, and I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up having a little Victor myself.
A very strong and handsome name. It has a wonderful meaning too!
I hate this name because of Victor Frankenstein.
I have this name, but for me it's ironic as hell.

Victor Kudo, a character in Ace Attorney.
My name is Victor and I already retired. From my perspective it's lucky name. At first it's very global, spread over all continents. It is very recognizable in almost any country of the world, and it is easy to memorize. The Hebrew variant for this name is Avigdor. Besides, it is not a very common name: usually you are the only one Victor in a party, or in a company building. So when someone has to mention you, no need to call your family name.
Victor, a name that sounds rather timeless, at least from my perspective, and could be the name of an infant all the way to an elderly gentleman. I think it is a classic name that might be just the one you are looking for if you want something that is short and easily pronounceable.

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.
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.
I like this name, especially pronounced with a British accent. Slightly pronouncing the -r.

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.
