Just want to know if there's a story behind the name, I was thinking along the lines of Queen Victoria and maybe her beauty or something? Though I don't actually know if she was beautiful or not. . .but if she was I guess Victoria's secret could be the secret to beauty? If you're wondering, this just came up after shopping there with friends : )

In The Social Network there was a back story given on Victoria's Secret. I have no idea if it's accurate or authentic, but I don't see it wouldn't. Basically, this man was ashamed to buy lingerie for his wife so he started a store - called Victoria's Secret. It was then sold to the Limited for millions of dollars.
I found this blurb online- Roy Raymond established Victoria's Secret in the San Francisco area during the 1970s. It is reported Roy wanted a cosy and inviting atmosphere for his store, and as a result it is thought, created the image of a Victorian boudoir. In 1982, he sold his catalogue operation and three stores to the Limited, now operating as Limited Brands.2
