Florentina is a first name for girls.
Recently, the name Florentina has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Florentina. That means that a girl named Florentina is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Florentina.
If your name is Florentina your parents may be very proud to let their daughter swim against the tide: The name Florentina never ranked higher than position 1,287 in our statistics, and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea of naming their daughter Florentina. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1905 to choose the name more often than usual - only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Florentina because that was several decades ago - unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in the neighborhood.
In years where the graph has no value, the name Florentina was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.
As in the last century, Florentina still proves to be exceptional. Even in 2021, the name was given very rarely - in fact, only 7 times in thee entire U.S. So, a Florentina from 2021 will need very good binoculars to spot the next namesake of the same age.
Meeting a woman or girl named Florentina is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Florentina can be found in only three: California, Hawaii and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Florentina. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Florentina living in one state or another. (If your name is Florentina and you live outside of California, Hawaii or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Florentina is in Texas, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Texas, only 0.00204% of all female residents are called Florentina – that’s just one in 48,917! And even in all the states, California, Hawaii and Texas, combined there are only a total of 263 women going by that name. So, if your name is Florentina, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter F is quite rare as a first letter for girls' names: only 1.2% of all common girls' names in the US begin with an F. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.
With ten letters, the name Florentina is obviously a particularly long first name used in the U.S.: only 1.8% of all common first names have exactly ten letters. 98% of all first names are shorter, while only 0.6% of all boys’ and girls’ names need more than ten letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that if 1.2% of all girls' names begin with an F, this initial letter is significantly less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with F that are quite popular, the most common at present is Frances.
If your name is Florentina and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Florentina, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Florentina sounds like this:
