Personal experiences with the name Victor: | Edit

I am married to a wonderful man named Victor. We named our first born son Victor as well. To be honest I never really liked the name Victor until I fell in love with my husband. I almost did not date him because of his name!!! LOL Just think I would have missed out on the love of my life and 6 beautiful kids!

My dad and my brother are both Victor. They are both nice, handsome guys, and the nickname Vic suits them well.

I named my one-year-old son Victor. It is a unique name in our area and it went with our very Polish last name. He is rowdy, playful, and full of a sense of adventure. I think it suits his personality perfectly!
