Even worse than Hortense.

It seems Hortuculture would be a related word. It's pretty enough. Not the best, but I like the meaning.

Not a famous person, but this is Donald Duck's mother's name in Swedish.

Well... it has a lovely meaning. I like gardens.

I think this name is a beautiful name, and is far better than Hortens, but I think it would be better as a second name, just because of the childish connotations of the prefix of this name that people may pick up on. Unfortunately, I think we live in a very childish society, it's a terrible shame for names like Hortensia. But for all the sensible people out there, great for a second name. :)

This sounds like some pompous elite name from 200 years ago, and the first syllable would cause serious problems to girls in English-speaking countries. This is one of the ugliest names I've ever come across.

Ortenzia Caviglia (whose last name means "ankle" in Italian) is the "heroine" of The Blue Aspic, a story by Edward Gorey. She is an opera singer who is utterly unscrupulous in her efforts to further her career. She gets her just deserts at the hands of a crazed fan.

I pity the children with this name.

I've also seen the name spelled as Hortencia in Spanish.

In English the name of the flower "hortensia" (in Latin - "Hydrangea hortensis") is "hydrangea".

"Hortensia" is a shrub with very big blossoms (there are a lot of possible colours of these flowers). "Hortensia" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

Hortenzia is also a Romanian name for girls. In fact, we know that is a flower name. Hydrangea macrophylla (Hortenzia), also called bigleaf or French hydrangea, has either pink or blue flowers.
