It was a custom back in 19th century colonial days to name most things or places after Queen Victoria. Thus, An Australian State is named Victoria, the former capital of Hong Kong was called Victoria and the capital city of British Colombia is Victoria. All of those areas were claimed at one time as part of the British Empire.
