Partial:

Is the waterfall Victoria Falls? which would imply the infix/middle name of the person is Vic/Victoria

Not so much a "Partial Answer" as a "guess based on your note"

Your claim:

The title is a hint

That points me in the direction of

"My Favorite Things"

from

The Sound of Music

To be honest, I didn't even try the actual riddle; but I think I might have at least solved the hint.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, it does relate to my favorite things but it's definitely not about music :D $\endgroup$

Since I think the answer @Cubemaster provided is correct, I'm not going to repeat it, but I think I know how his answer might relate to the title.

In the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter encounters a Sphinx in the maze which asks him a Riley Riddle. Is that one of your favorite Riley Riddles @Kevin ?
