"My name is Flora (more precisely Fl?ra due to me being hungarian) and i do get jokes about my name a lot, especially when people ask where my sister "Fauna" is. That joke is getting pretty old, but i still like my name nonetheless. In my preschool there were 2 other Floras and another girl called Vir?g (meaning flower) so it is actually a pretty common name used in Hungary." Aug. 30, 2020:
"My name is also Flora, and in my country it's a pretty rare name. I really like the ring to it, and it sparked my interest in flowers and forests! :D
(..My twin is often called Fauna though. Poor girl.)" Dec. 12, 2017:

"My name is Flora Jean. I was never called Flora, only Jeannie or Jean. I'm 62 years old now and I've never liked my first name. I would get teased or looked at stange when people found out my first name. I've always wanted to drop my first name, and just go by Jean. Now that I'm older, I'm starting to appreciate my name.I was named after my grandmother who was the sweetest women. I will probably always go by my middle name because that's what I've always been called. I'm glad I never dropped my first name now that I'm older because I was named after the sweetest grandmother ever!" Feb. 12, 2021:
"My aunt was named Flora, changed from her Dutch born name when they immigrated to the US. I never even thought of anyone naming their baby that. It is stuffy and too old fashioned. I am 81 years old and have always hated my old fashioned name so don't like to see people do that to their children." Jan. 22, 2019:
"my name is flora and i like it. ive never been teased and ive had lots of different nicknames come out of it" Jun. 22, 2013:
"It's rare to see anyone with this name anymore, but that's not always a bad thing. At least having an uncommon name makes it people to identify you out of a group. People tell me my name sounds pretty sometimes. XD" Jan. 3, 2006:
