Personal Impression
My fiance is Romanian and her name is Blanca.
According to what I've found, "Bianca" is the normal Romanian spelling for this name. But her family is from Transylvania where the Hungarians ruled for a couple hundred years. Maybe the Hungarian spelling "Blanka" influenced her parents to give her the "Blanca" spelling.

The /k/ sound is soft in her name - nearly two sounds: /Blangka/, almost. I believe it to be a wonderfully beautiful name. I am so grateful that she isn't American with the dreadful "Blanche". I cringe at the sound of that word...

Blanca Errázuriz (1894-1940) was a Chilean socialite from the prominent Errázuriz family (noted for producing four presidents of Chile). She married and divorced a much older American businessman named John de Saulles. Their nasty battle over the custody of their son led to Blanca shooting her ex-husband. Blanca was subject to a highly publicized trial and was later acquitted.

I do not really like this name that much. It is too tacky.

Means white in Spanish, as most people know. Costa Blanca is a famous place with this name.

Blanca is a very pretty name.

I personally think that this name is prettier than "Blanche" and "Bianca". The English pronunciation of "Blanche" is just plain awful! "Blanca" sounds softer and sweeter somehow than her French sister.
