Meaning and origin of the name Victor
Latin name, meaning - "winner; triumphant; conqueror". The epithet of Jupiter and Mars.
Victor the Moor (in Latin: Victor Maurus) (born 3rd century in Mauretania; died ca. 303 in Milan) was a Christian martyr and is venerated as a Saint. Victor, born into a Christian family, was a soldier in the Roman Praetorian Guard. After he had destroyed some pagan altars, he was arrested, tortured, and killed around 303. Gregory of Tours claimed miracles occurred above his grave; a church was built above the supposed site. His cult was particularly promoted by SaintAmbrose, fourth-century bishop of Milan and numerous churches have been dedicated to him in the city itself and throughout the Diocese of Milan and its neighbours.
His memorial day is May 8 in the Roman Catholic Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
