- Personal experiences with the name Victoria: | Edit
My niece's name is Victoria, but she goes by Ria. I think that is a very classy name, and such a feminine/pretty nickname.
This is my younger sister's name but she isn't very fond of it so she goes by Tori which I think suits her better than Victoria (Tall, rather skinny, dark brown straight hair, hazel eyes)
My Auntie's name, she never uses her full name because she lives in the state of Victoria, so she is just Vikki to everyone
My name is Victoria, and through out school I was called Vicki for short and I HATED it! I've just always despised that nickname. My family and close friends call me Tori for short, and I like that a lot better. When the boys in my elementary school wanted to tease me, they called me Vic or Victor, but that happens with most names, and it wasn't too serious. I still love my name.
I go by Tori. Only some of my family members call me Victoria. My friends sometimes call me Vicki to annoy me as, like the person above, i HATE it! I don't really like having such an old fashioned name but i do love being shortened to Tori!
My name is Victoria, although I've always gone by Tori. I have never had a problem with my name. I always felt that it was unique - I was born in 1977 and didn't go to school with any other Victoria's or Tori's. Only negative is that people will occasionally call me Vicki or Vick which I absolutely abhorr. My middle name is Rosalyn which I like with Victoria. Overall a good experience.
