Not only are individual flower names more popular (and exotic) than ever, but so too are the more generic names like Florence and Flora. While brother name Fiorello became known via long-term New York Mayor LaGuardia, the lovely Fiorella has never crossed cultures. She could join Arabella as a post-Isabella ella choice.

Love, love, love it! I used to joke with my sister that I'd use this if I married my HS boyfriend. His last name is Fiore so Fiorella Fiore! Too funny. But it really is a gorgeous name.

Fiorella is such a frilly, spunky, long lovely name. It's rather too elaborate for my usual name tastes, but I objectively like it, and would love to see other people using the name in real life. Fiorella has the same fiery and spunky and classic feel to me as Seraphina and Ignatius, and I think they'd make an epic sibling set!

Side note: How amazingly long and epic is Isabella Rosselini's name? :D

I'd use it if people would say it the proper way. (It's not fee-yorella.)
