Feminine form of the Latin name Victorius (a derivative of Victor), also perhaps a direct use of Latin victoria ‘victory’. It was little known in England until the accession in 1837 of Queen Victoria (1819–1901), who got it from her German mother, Mary Louise Victoria of Saxe-Coburg. It did not begin to be a popular name among commoners in Britain until the 1940s, reaching a peak in the 1990s.
