Comments and insights on the name Tori: | Edit

I have heard it derives from the japanese nick name for tornado, and when our Torrie was small she really lived up to that nick name.

Japanese for "Bird" my old friend used to call my little sister "bird" or "birdy"
.......
My daughter, Tori, (who is in her 20's) was named after the Norwegian God of Thunder, Thor.
In Norway, Thor is spelled, Tor.
Having a Norwegian last name meaning Son Of Thor, we named her Tori as an effeminate form of Thor.
Normally, it's Thora or Tora but we didn't like those so we made it Tori. She lives up to her name, strong, confident and beautiful :)

Personal experiences with the name Tori: | Edit

my daughter's name is Torrie, my husband picked it because it sounded like my name,Lorrie, I liked it because it was different name I had'nt heard at the time, she is now 29 years old.

my friend's name is spelled Torre. Her parent's got the spelling from Joe Torre's name.

My name is Tori. I love it! The nicknames for Tori though are a bit odd, Torls, Tor-Tor, Toreo. I was called Strawbatori throughout elementary school because of my red hair. It's a bit amusing.
For a middle name I suggest something that doesnt end in Y or A. Like Morgan.
