What do you think of my front running girls name?

I think I really like it, but am finding it so hard to be sure.

So I thought I'd put it out there for some honest opinions! x

I love Florence as a name but the two names together sound a little flowery, hippy ish. What about Florence Eve?

thinkingoutloud2 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:02:29

My other options are Florence Anne, Florence Jean, and Florence Beatrix.

Blossom is the name of a cow, like Clarabelle. It's not good, but put with Florence (which is fine) it manages to become even worse. Even though the cow character is Ermintrude it still makes me think of The Magic Roundabout.

Beatrix (fantastic name) is too much with Florence. Both are full on, strong names. Not keen on Jean, Eve and Anne are good.

I love Florence but not Blossom. I think it's even a little bit hard to say.
Of the other three I like Florence Jean. Or Anne. Beatrix doesn't flow for me.

Thanks, I agree about Florence and Beatrix being too much together. Do you prefer Anne or Jean as the middle name?

Or do I go with Beatrix, which was my original favourite, until most of my family said that they didn't like it..

Jean is great! I know a Jean in her 20s and she really pulls it off.

Elis1905 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:17:40

If I had to choose, Anne is marginally better than Jean but both sound really old fashioned not in a good way. Love Beatrix but yes too much with Florence.
What about Florence Rose?

villainousbroodmare Tue 10-Nov-15 16:26:36

I prefer Jean.
Do you prefer Flo, Flor, Flurry, Florrie, or Bea, Bee, Trixie? I would not much like Trixie and I reckon it would be inevitable.

Or Flora? Flora Anne?

Are you familiar with the phrase "Spread 'em, blossom, see if I know you?"
I think many people are.
Florence, yes.
Blossom, no.
How about Florence Primrose?

Love love love Blossom make sure you include it. Florence is ok

Florence Jean, then Florence Beatrix. You won't say the middle name overly often anyway.

MrsDallowaySaid Tue 10-Nov-15 18:25:56

Florence Blossom was my actual first choice... Do it! I wasn't allowed ??

Tiggeryoubastard Tue 10-Nov-15 21:54:36

timelytess I remember it differently - 'drop em, Blossom'.
Spread em is Flora (sorry, thinking).

Sunshine511 Tue 10-Nov-15 22:09:06

Florence Olivia?

timelytess Tue 10-Nov-15 22:14:52

Spread em is Flora
Thanks. I'd never heard that one!
Blossom is still out, for me. 'Drop 'em' isn't as graphic as 'Spread 'em' but its off-putting all the same.

Florence is a nice name.

Blossom reminds me of cows and those old fashioned knickers called bloomers. Not a fan at all, sorry.

IMHO You should name your dc whatever you like and sod everyone else
