Comments for the name Florian

Comments for FLORIAN:

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. :)
