About This Quiz

Queen Victoria's reign was one of significant growth for Great Britain. Everything from religion to political issues to industry grew en masse during that time. Victoria's time on the throne came to be known as the Victorian Era due to all that happened. As eras go, there were trends during that time, and one of those trends was what people were naming their children. Some of the names have made a comeback, but some remained in that age. 

The names that were gifted to the world were nothing short of fascinating. You had names like Alma, which had nothing to do with where people went to school, and Tesla, which isn't the Elon Musk-owned car brand of today. Some of these names had a religious origin, and some were family names from a time even longer in the past, but either way, these names meant something to people. They are effortlessly classic and elegant, and you'll be ahead of the game if you decide to name your child after one of them. But what if you lived in the Victorian Era?
