    Many names originated from the Holy Bible. As a matter of fact, the biblical baby names are dominant on the Victorian era. For example, John, Thomas, James, Joseph, Samuel, Jacob, Mary, Margaret, Sara, and Ruth have biblical origin. Actually, many biblical names are still popular today.

    Virtuous baby names are dominant on the Victorian era as well. For example, Chastity, Hope, Mercy, Prudence, and Charity are virtuous baby names on Victorian era. Mostly, the virtuous baby names are for female baby names.

    In some names, the first and middle name fuses together to form a single first name. For example, Sarah Ann, Marie Louise, Marie Grace, Henry James, and Frank Williams were first name in which the first and middle name were fused together. This baby naming practice appeared in multiple times in census, marriage, and public records.

    The society in Victorian England was divided into upper, middle, and lower class. The family who belong to the upper class used the baby names prevalent to the upper class. As time goes by, the middle and lower class improves to higher class. The baby names which were prevalent on the higher class trickled down to the lower class.

    The royalty, religious, and political leaders also influenced the baby names. For example, George, William, Victoria, and Elizabeth are royalty baby names.
