Personal experiences with the name Bianca: | Edit

We named our daughter Bianca. She has lived up to her name with dark chestnut hair, milky white complexion, and blue eyes. Her friends at college call her "Snow White", and they have decorated her dorm with pictures and drawings of Snow White. At home, we use the nickname Bee Bop.

My name is Bianca. I'm in my late 30's and have only ran into 2 others. One my age and one quite younger. I love my name and get complimented on it all the time. The most common is how beautiful it is, and exotic.

My name is Bianca. I'm 19 and have never met another Bianca! I love my name a lot and I think is suits me really well. I use the nicknames Bi and Bia.
