Comments for FLORIAN:

A very lovely name. It expresses intelligence. Its short form in Germany is "Flo", which sounds like a cheedy boy - I like that.

Or "Flori", which I don't like at all.
Florian is my stepfather's name, but luckily he goes by Flo (only Flori sometimes).

This is singer Dido's real name: Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong. (gulp)
I think it works quite well as a female name - floral connotations.

I love this name. I met someone from France with this name. This name always reminds me of him. It also sounds nice and sophisticated.

Masculine and beautiful at once. I like that there is a floral name for a male.

I have always liked Florian to an extent. It is also popular in my home country; on and off. I also like Frederick.

A handsome name but it is a bit foppish and dated. I think it might come off as pretentious but it does sound nice.

Although Floriaan is the authentic, native Dutch form (originally, Latin names ending in -ianus always became -iaan in Dutch), it is not used as often in The Netherlands as Florian. Floriaan is rare nowadays, whereas Florian is fairly popular and has been steadily gaining in popularity since the early '80s. In fact, in 2011 the name Florian was at its most popular ever: that year, 119 newborn boys were given this name.

As such, 'Dutch' should also be listed in the 'Usage' section for this name. :)

I think it's a sweet name for a boy. It reminds me of art when I hear it.

This is my name. I like it - I like the floral meaning and the sound of it. It's pretty common where I live, but that doesn't bother me. I'm glad to have this name.
