The name Faustina has also seen use in Russia, where it is spelled as: Фаустина. A Russian variant form of the name is Favstina (Фавстина), which seems to be extremely rare compared to Faustina.

My friend's name is Faustina, and she plays Buttercup in the Princess Bride play we're working on. Faustina is a beautiful rare name and I love it!

Faustina is my aunt's name. She goes by the nickname Fay. I don't think she ever really embraced her name. At first, I didn't know what to think of it as the name reminded me of a faucet. However, now I am starting to like it. It isn't a name you hear everyday.

Faustina is a very nice name and it sounds like someone with strong convictions.
