Long,decadent,unusual middle name for Flora...

(145 Posts)

Give me some of your favourite long middle names please,something special,maybe a guilty pleasure that you'd not dare use grin

After my battles with boys names I just want to enjoy forming a really brilliant girls name,
We seem to have settled on Flora,it seems 'right' somehow.

I think what people are really saying is "pick a Chalet School book, open it and stick in a pin." Easy.thlgrin

I love Flora Celestine and Flora Jessamine. I think the -one balances the -ra nicely (if that makes sense). On the basis I'd also pick Seraphine over Seraphina.

Don't Flora Japonica, Flora Juniper Flora Primroase and Flora Honeysuckle etc sound rather like Latin plant names?

Question on Gardener's Question Time.

" I planted a Flora Japonica against a SE facing wall three years ago. It has grown new foliage each year but has not yet flowered. What should I do?"

Flora Delphine was the first thing I thought of. It just sounds right somehow. Love Flora btw smile

I loved persephone initially for Dd but couldnt get over the name meaning and origins so that hended up being a no go! Hermione is a lovley name though!

Flora Juniper
Flora Primrose
Flora Persephone
Flora Ariadne
Flora Celestine
Flora Calliope
Flora Mabel
Flora Beatrice

Are all still in the running after many vetoes from DP...we've also decided to go overboard like we did with DD1 and give two MN...so more ideas please! thanks

(Someone up thread said their DD's name was Florence Beatrice Primrose which is utterly beautiful,something like that would be wonderful grin )
