Stately and cool, Queen Victoria made this name popular in 1837 when she ascended to the British throne for a 63-year reign known as the Victorian era. The monarch’s first name was Alexandrina, but she favored her middle name, Victoria, and who could blame her? The Roman goddess of victory was named Victoria, and her symbol was a chariot. Victoria is also a saint’s name—and the name of former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. Victoria, a British TV series about the young monarch, debuted in 2016. Popular nicknames include Vicky and Tori. Michael Jordan has a daughter named Victoria.
