I love this name so much because it means flower and makes me think of spring. Very pretty sounding as well.

In Sweden Flora is the word used for a lexicon about plants, and in general for vegetation.
Flora is also the brand name of a type of margarine.

Flora MacDonald famously hid Bonnie Prince Charlie on the Isle of Skye when he was fleeing his pursuers. Flora is quite a popular name in Scotland.

Flora would be a great name for a cat.

Beautiful name. Reminds me of the darling daughter in Moll Flanders. A great, fairyish name.

Though it has terrible connotations.
Aunt Flo.
Enough said.

I don't know why, but I don't like this name. Which is weird, considering I love Moira, Laura, Zora, Nora and my eldest daughter's name, Leonora.

I really like this name, elegant, simple, and lush. It can be used as a nickname for Florence as well.

In Scotland the name became popular as an Anglicised form of the Gaelic name Fionnghuala and its variants. Flora MacDonald's given name was actually Fionnghal.

Only this name sounds like that butter.
― Anonymous User  11/19/2007
I love this name, I just wish there wasn't a butter called Flora because that will be the first association for a lot of people.

As long as you don't have another daughter named Fauna, and as long as you don't call the girl Flo, this name is alright. It rhymes with the very common Laura and Norah, and it also rhymes with the beautiful names Cora and Dora, and it has a soft, pleasant sound to it. It's quite old-fashioned and a bit too flower-y in a very literal way, but it's not bad.

I do believe that "Flora" is the name of the little, angelic girl in Henry James' "Turn of the Screw".

There is a very nice song by Enya called Flora's Secret.

If you dislike Flora, I think Floral would be a pretty alternative.

Flora is also the main character in Mary Jane Beaufrand's novel, "Primavera."

My daughter's name is Flora. I think it's a beautiful name, and my daughter is born in the spring so it fits her perfect.
It's not very common here which I also think is a good thing =)
honungspinglan  11/6/2010
So many literary tie-ins! Definitely a name with strong and darling roots.

A lot of people might think this is old-fashioned, but I think it's really pretty. Not my absolute favorite, but it's really nice.

This should be listed as a Scottish name as well, as it is often used as an Anglicized form of Fionnghuala and similar names. [noted -ed]

This beautiful name was given to 124 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
Oohvintage  7/17/2013
We're seriously considering this name for a daughter. It's very uncommon here in the US, but that's what I like. It's old fashioned and sweet, and suitable for all ages. Although, my name is Lily, so that might be a little too 'flower-y'.

8 Flora is an asteroid that was discovered by J. R. Hind on October 18, 1847. It is named after Flora from Roman mythology, the goddess of flowers and the season of spring.
ophelia  10/20/2013
I love this name. It's not very common, but simple and beautiful. I also think it would age gracefully.
Muddyb00ts  4/17/2014
Flora is a lovely, pretty name. (:
― Anonymous User  8/9/2014
Still needs to be actually listed in Scottish names.
thesnowwhiterose  12/8/2014
I would definitely have used this name as it's a family name but then the man who invented Flora margarine named it after his wife's middle name, and ruined it for the rest of the UK, because let's face it, no girl or woman wants to be associated with the word 'spread'. It is such a shame, as I love the meaning, the goddess connection and it's short, flows well and is feminine. I disagree with people disliking it because of Flo, it's like people shortening Laura to Low. I mean come on, it's only 2 syllables!

@queen_vic 1/20/2015 I agree, I'm from the UK and the Flora margarine assoociation is quite a damn shame for people over here who really adore this name. I would love to use this name. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to use it though.

I like this name, a little plain but it's still good.

Also a Modern Greek name, written Φλωρα.

I'm not a fan of this name. It reminds me of gut Flora.

Flora is a fresh, colorful name, no one can resist the delightful mood of the name Flora. I like it very much. And currently, Flora Italy is a name for a luxurious skincare, that added much to my skin glow, and I think that is because OF THE NAME FLORA, makes you feel serenity.

Flora is a nurse hamster from the anime Hamtaro. Stan has a huge crush on her. (Unlike other girls Stan has flirted with, Flora seems to like him back.)
