It isn't only me who noticed then. It's been on the "top searched on Nameberry today" name cloud since yesterday or longer. I haven't been on the site on my laptop, so I can't see the "searched right now" part, but I can imagine. 😀 X

The name is fine, but typing it in 10.000 times in a row is not cool. It in fact makes me not like it at all!

scblovesnames Says:


Yes, exactly my thought. I love the meaning.

AbbyNu Says:


May 22, 2017: This name is THE TOP of popularity on Nameberry right now. Anyone know why?! (It's GORGEOUS, don't get me wrong, but it is a bit confusing as a more out-there name.)

Aethelflaed Says:


It's a Gilbert and Sullivan name, the name of one of the major characters in The Gondoliers!

rgp19 Says:


I first heard this name watching Borgia (the European version of the show not the showtime one), I thought it was so pretty. I also love the painting A vision of Fiammetta by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. I would never have the courage to use it though
