Gender: M Meaning of Victor: "conqueror" Origin of Victor: Latin Victor's Popularity in 2013: #142

Popularity: this week.

Victor is one of the earliest Christian names, borne (as Vittorio) by several saints and popes, symbolizing Christ's victory over death. It has been quietly in the Top 200 since 1880, but just recently has taken on a cool edge by fashionable parents in London and seems ripe for a similar reevaluation here too.

Victor made it big in the English-speaking world during the reign of Queen Victoria, one of the few male names popularized by a female version.

Victor was the first name of Dr. Frankenstein, the scholar who brings the monster to life, and the romantic figure of Victor Laszlo in "Casablanca," not to mention the esteemed writer Victor Hugo.

Victor is currently popular in Denmark (Where it's Number 5), Belgium (14) and Spain (32). Italian version Vittorio adds a large measure of charm.
