I read that book as well (only mine was the Prophecy of the Stones instead). It was a really great book, and is one of my favorites! I really admire Flavia Bujor for her unique and incredible writing.

Though Flavia means yellow, it seems like a total redhead name to me. I picture gorgeous red or auburn-haired women from a Pre-Raphaelite paintings. I like Flavia a lot. It's a very beautiful name, and it has this Victorian elegance and strength to it, which I can't help but admire.

In Ancient Roman times daughters of men named 'Flavius' would have been named Flavia.

The Ancient Romans would have also pronounced it 'FLAH-wi-ah' because in Latin the v's are pronounced as w's.

Flavia is the name of the Mary Sue protagonist of the infamous Percy Jackson and the Olympians fanfic Moon Daughter (which is kind of like My Immortal in terms of its horrible spelling and grammar and hilariously bad dialogue). She is supposed to be the demigoddess daughter of Artemis. Despite her name meaning "blonde", Flavia hates blondes with a flaming passion.

Ugly name. It just sounds like someome saying 'Flavor' but in a ridiculous way or with a deep accent like Russian.
Its like Anorld Swatszeneger saying the word.

It's my name. Is very common in Brazil and really very exotic in USA. But I'm happy to see that there are people outside Brazil who consider Flavia a beautiful name. And I agree that the name Flavia seems to be the name of a red-haired and freckled woman. But unfortunately, I don't have natural red hair...

10 baby girls born in the USA (2015) were given Flavia.

First came across this name in my Latin book in 1980s (Ecce Romani) and thought it a lovely name. Never had a daughter (only one son) so no occasion to consider using it.

The little girl character (Margaet O'Brien) in the 1948 movie Tenth Avenue Angel was named Flavia. So cute!
