About This Quiz

What's in a name? As Shakespeare would say, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." However, your name is part of your first impression, and it can speak of your heritage and the era you were in. And of course, as children go, if your name rhymes with a bodily function or an unfortunate adjective, your name can mean a lifelong, cringe-worthy memory of growing up. 

In contrast, the Victorian era conjures several pleasant images – top hats, puffed sleeves, horse-drawn carriages, and glorious celebrations. The Victorian era girl names were feminine, charming, and elegant while the male names were inspired by trades, family names, and religious beliefs, as well as personality traits. 

This quiz will help you see yourself in 1862, growing up in the Victorian era. You'll be asked a series of questions about your outlook on life, your likes, dislikes and your social interactions. Your answers will help us match you to a name during that historic time, the qualities you would possess, and a historic vision of what type of person you would be. Take the quiz now and see how your current name measures up to the name you would be given more than a century ago.
