Personal Impression
Yeah, I was just making sure somebody had mentioned Floor Jansen (vocalist of After Forever, Revamp and Nightwish). She's awesome!

Floor is a beautiful name in my opinion, with a great sound and meaning (in Dutch). It’s a form of Flora / Fleur / Florence and has the same connotations as those names to me.

Of course it’s unusable in English-speaking countries, but if you’re in the Netherlands, Belgium, or other Dutch-speaking areas it would be an excellent choice.

For those mocking it for the English meaning: not everyone speaks English! Names should be considered within their own languages and cultures, not foreign ones.

Pretty sounding name, bad spelling for English speaking countries.

This name is pronounced as FLO:R. The -oo- in the name is pronounced the same as it is in the Dutch names Joop, Koos and Roos. [noted -ed]

I've never heard this on a man before! I'm surprised it's masculine. That's probably just a Frisian thing.

I know it has an English meaning, but do you know what Bill means in Dutch? Buttock. Please, it's a very normal name over here (Compare it to Bill!). Stop making fun of it.

Dear god; what a useless name!
Quillheart: no, its actually bil. And Bill isn't as popular as it was. You meet a Bill and great chances are they are in their 40s and over. So..

I think people are very ignorant and immature when they associate a name with a meaning in a different language. Just like Heck, Floor is a foreign name that English speakers make fun of just because of the English meaning. I think Floor would be a nice name in a country that doesn't speak English.

What the hell?! What kind of a name is Floor? Your child will be bullied and get walked on.

My parents thought about naming me Floor (I'm Dutch) and up until now, the English meaning never even crossed my mind which is funny because I study English at university and speak and read English for the majority of my time. I guess the name was just so familiar to me (I know a couple of people named Floor) that I never really looked at it long enough to consider what it means in English. Now that I've realized that, I'm glad my parents didn't name me this. However, the English meaning aside, I still think this is a nice name.

If you live in an English-speaking country, please do your child a favor and don't name them after that nice, hard surface under your feet.

I think it goes without saying that Anglophones don't call their children Floor. You don't even need to say that. I find some people's ignorance quite insulting. Sure, it might mean "floor" in English, but it's the Dutch form of Flora. Please show some respect for other people's languages.

Ignoring the obvious English meaning, I'm surprised it actually does have a really pretty sound to it. A lot like Fleur.

Floortje (the Dutch diminutive of Floor) is the name of my cat. I like both names, but I know much more cats and dogs with this names than boys and girls.

This name is extremely stupid and pointless. It sounds SO wrong!

Saying that this name is extremely stupid and wrong makes you sound completely ignorant. What's wrong with it? It's a word in English? So what? It's a perfectly fine name in Dutch.
