Bianca is a gorgeous, elegant name. It is the name of a mouse in the Disney movie, "The Rescuers". It's also the name of a character on "All My Children."

"Bianca" is Italian and means simply "white".

My name is Bianca, I think it's a little annoying at times but everyone tells me how gorgeous and rich it is. It is a bit funny that I'm almost 100 percent Italian and I'm like fair skinned but my name also means white.

Absolutely beautiful, full of European flair and Shakespearean grace.

This name is fair; but it reminds me of the Disney movies, The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under, in which a little white mouse was named Bianca. She was French, which doesn't make sense since the name is Italian. The French form would be Blanche, which is a rather ugly name pronounced the English way; in French it is ok.

Actually, Miss Bianca from the Disney Rescuers films is Hungarian not French. She was voiced by Hungarian actress Eva Gabor.

Not my style of name, I find it cold and harsh.

I'm only 11, but lately after discovering Shakespeare, I like my name Bianca. It's classic, and I love old stuff. Romeo and Juliet, Phantom of the Opera, I love my name. Well, like. It could be better. But still - it's pretty beautiful, and I wouldn't immediately change it. Unless my friends agreed to call me Luna, that's when I would go and change it.

Bianca Jagger is pretty famous. I tend to relate it to Shakespeare though, and not to her.

I hate this name. It's very overused and not pretty at all. Whenever I hear someone say it, it sounds like they are whining.
-- Anonymous User  12/28/2006
I think the name Bianca is beautiful, and delicate. I have a friend named Bianca, she is wonderful, and her name is perfect for her. It suits her well. In conclusion, I love the name Bianca because I think it's a wonderful name for a girl.

A beautiful name. The 'anca' makes it sound pretty.

My impression on the name Bianca is a very nice one. I have a cousin named Bianca. The name Bianca kind of wraps around me. It is a very elegant name and very rarely used now these days. Bianca is only used on females or that is at least what I've heard. I think it is a great name and to all you Bianca's you are fabulous people.

In "Taming of the Shrew", Bianca is Kate's little sister. The movie "Ten Things I Hate About You" is a modern-day version of "Taming of the Shrew". Bianca is Kat's little sister.

I am currently reading 'Mirror, Mirror' by Gregory Maguire, and Bianca de Nevada is the protagonist. It is a clever, adult re-telling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Bianca is a (I like to call) FUN name!
-- littleengen2992  11/1/2007
When I was younger I didn't like my name. I always said I'm gonna change it when I get older. But now I like it. My name is GLAMOROUS!
-- .babybianca.  12/13/2007
Sounds like the name of a breath spray once marketed in the US! Still, I like the sound of it and it's better than Alba, which is another name that means "white".
-- leananshae  12/19/2007
For me, Bianca is the most beautiful female name in the world. It is my wife's name. Oddly, she was born in Den Hauge, but her family vacationed in Italy and picked up the name there. I think mostly she likes her name, but if you call our house and cannot pronounce her name correctly, you cannot talk to her. =) The only thing the name lacks is a nickname. A lot of her friends simply call her "B" because you just cannot shorten Bianca.

-- Karcoolka  2/15/2008
Ugly, ugly, ugly. Not only is this name harsh sounding, it's one of the most unfeminine names I've ever heard. It's also a bit of a tongue twister for other little kids to pronounce. Please think twice before naming your daughter this.
-- TiffanyS  2/26/2008
I always associate this with Bianca de Nevada, the surrogate Snow White of Gregory Maguire's fabulous novel Mirror, Mirror. Bianca is a really sweet, curious character, so I think of this as a very sweet, gentle name, but with a little kick of intelligence.
-- FuschiaNicole  3/10/2008
Bianca is used in Kiss Me Kate, which is of course yet another adaption of Taming of the Shrew. For some reason, though the names of all the other actors in the play-within-a-play are different from their characters (Lilli plays Katherine/Katharina, Billy plays Lucentio and Fred plays Petruchio), Bianca is the actress playing Bianca.

Czech and Slovak form is Běla.

Well this is my name, my father, being a big fan of the Rolling Stones and rock n' roll in general, named me after Bianca Jagger, who I believe, was Mick Jagger's first wife? I love my name, I love the fact that it has to do with the Rolling Stones, since I am a big fan of classic rock n' roll thanks to my father. :)
-- penelopepitstop  8/14/2008
Although it does mean white, it was also used to denote beauty, white related to fair related to pretty. This connotation was recognised by earlier generations hence Shakespeare used as the name of characters he wanted the audience to know were beautiful even though men would be playing the roles & props were limited in his time!

Slovakian-Italian actress Bianca Maria Kajlich, born 26. March 1977, Seattle, Washington.
-- Emilie007  9/3/2008
Annoying and chavvy name.
-- Anonymous User  9/28/2008
In Italy Bianca was popular between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th: it was the 11th most popular name in Rome in 1901 and the 6th in 1906. In the second half of the 20th century it was old-fashioned. Nowadays one can begin hearing some little Bianca again.
-- presentperfect  12/22/2008
In response to the person who said this name is "chavvy", I don't think it is. It's a traditional Italian name and I really like it.
-- bananarama  3/19/2009
Bianca de Angelo was a demigod in "The Titan's Curse", the third book in the "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" series.
-- emmiix3  3/25/2009
I LOVE this name. I love the Shakespeare connection and I like the way it rolls off my tongue. For nicknames, you could use "Bink" or "Bee." Ahhh, I just love this name. :)
-- meggsxx3  5/18/2009
This is really chavvy/trashy in some countries. The equivalent of using Brandy or Sharlene. It's strange how a nice Italian name could be considered trashy elsewhere.
-- Anonymous User  8/6/2009
I saw the most ironic and unintentionally hilarious use of this name on the Maury show some years back. A very dark-skinned man was denying he was the father of his very fair-skinned ex-girlfriend's very fair-skinned baby because she was too light. (She did turn out to be his.) The baby's name was Bianca, which literally means "white." Did the young lady not know what her daughter's name meant, and how funny that would look in light of her situation?
-- Anyechka  9/12/2009
Not to be racist, but I once knew a girl with this name who was black, so the meaning was a bit ironic.
-- Anonymous User  3/2/2010
It sounds like the name of a bitchy snob to me.
-- Black_X  12/30/2010
I don't like it! The "-ka" sound is really harsh and mean sounding.
-- Chrila96  1/2/2011
Recently, this has become my new favorite name (I change my favorite names a lot) and I don't know why. I always used to hate it, but now, I think it's lovely! I think it's because it sounds so feminine, yet strong at the same time :D
-- Ryry1996  8/24/2011
I think that this name is very pretty and gorgeous.
-- meemeeandmama  10/22/2011
Personally I like the name Bianca. It certainly has an exotic but refined sound. The only problem is it's not a name that can be easily used in the USA. I once went to school with a girl named Bianca and she was often teased by kids and adults. Her name was also misspelled a lot. Even with all that, I still like the name.
-- GibsonGirl  12/17/2011
I have a friend named Bianca. She told our lunch group a little story: I don't remember the circumstance, but she met an Italian guy and he said "Oh, your name's Bianca; you must be Italian!" She replied "No, I'm not." "Yes, you are!" the man continued to insist. The exchange went on like that until one of them gave up or left, I don't remember. Then she said to us, "Some people from foreign countries just don't understand that in America, we use other countries' names, and we don't have to be Italian or whatever to have Italian names."

At first I thought Bianca sounded sort of harsh, but it's grown on me. I especially like Bianca Rose, because I like white roses which are so fragrant. Bella Bianca Rosa, "Beautiful White Rose!" I still haven't warmed up to the anc sound, though. When I first met my friend named Bianca I thought it sounded ghetto, probably because ghetto names are more common than classy Italian names in my area, and the anc sound. Then I remembered that in ancient Egyptian, "ankh" meant life (anc would be the ultra-anglicized pronunciation). So I would give my daughter the middle name of Biankha, but it looks, seems, and is a terrible modern kre8tiv misspelling, and I never like it when people do that. All in all, a lovely name.

I love this name, not only does it sound pretty but it's my sweetheart's name.

I like the name Bianca, not one of my favourites but..
I really hate it when people create a parody of it, such as bionca. I hate that.
-- adrienneyo_  1/13/2014
Hm... well, I don't know about elsewhere, but here in the UK, this name IS seen as very chavvy and trashy. The character in Shakespeare was basically a prostitute, so I don't really see this as a positive connotation...
-- Anonymous User  3/14/2014
Bianca... what a nice name! So pretty and sophisticated :)
-- EqualityandLoveRall  5/19/2014
This name is lovely, in every way. I love Shakespeare, I also love Italian names. It's pure and a seemly innocent name for a beautiful girl. However, sometimes people with this name aren't exactly the nicest, but it is still a graceful name. When I have a daughter, her name might be Bianca Marie. I love the nickname Bambi, but not so much Bia.
