    Yes. Bianca's got a nice Shakespearan connection too. And I can see it on an adult more easily than I can Arabella.

    Bianca is like Fiona a perfectly nice name, pretty and would always suit a child and therefore I think if you prefer Arabella you may prefer frillier, fussier and more out there kind of names. As I said before I prefer Arabella although the nn of Ari doesn't fill me with joy and I prefer Belle to Bella.

    Definitely Bianca. It's multifaceted while Arabella is one note- a frilly, princessy, girly-girl.

    People are wearing the Bella names out. I was too through when I stumbled on an episode of 16 & Pregnant. The way the mom kept saying Arabella was like nails on a chalkboard

    I loved Miss Bianca in The Rescuers (voiced by Eva Gabor) so it has a sultry, jazzy feel. Then I babysat a sweet little Bianca who was part girly and part tomboy so the name took on youthful and bubbly feel
