Any thoughts on these two names?

Flora - Down side, the margarine connection.

Linnea - Is it too hard to pronounce?

As a biologist I think Linnea is fab, and would have liked it myself but dp vetoed it. I prefer it to Flora.

Not keen on either but prefer Flora by a mile

Linnea is also the namr of house of frasers own brand clothing.

If you want the floral theme without the margarine association, how about Zinnia? It is less popular than Flora so wil szand out more.

Flora sounds a little bit bit dull to me, and has no obvious nicknames (I like names that offer possibilities). Linnea is nicer sounding I think, and does look like a pretty flower. I like Linnet too.

I don't like either. Flora always sounds frumpy to me, an Linnea doesn't even sound like a proper name.

Neither are to my taste sorry

Flora, apart from the ignominy of having your name on margarine, is frumpy

Linnea, might be good if you were Swedish ( if it's recognised as a real name there). Otherwise its a bit 'made up' sounding. It doesn't help that I shop in house of Fraser so it just makes me think of homewares & clothes etc
