What are your thoughts on Florence or Eleanor? Or any other options along these lines?
Middle name may be Elizabeth but not confirmed!

Love them both, and Elizabeth. Three of my favourites.

Sorry, not helpful, I know.

Love Eleanor, but dislike the nickname Ellie.
Florence is awful.

shalalala Sun 07-Feb-16 19:43:31

Or Evelyn? But worry it's too 'mainstream' now

Narp Sun 07-Feb-16 19:45:18

I don't really like either of them - Eleanor is lovely but I don't like Ellie sorry)

I would suggest

Julia
Sylvia
Juliet
Christina

Evelyn is nice, but again, Evie is really popular

Narp Sun 07-Feb-16 19:47:28

What about Constance - Connie?

I love Florence, Eleanor and Evelyn. Sorry no help, but just love all those names!

I know an Eleanor whose nn is Nora. Personal favourite out of these Florence, but it seems to be very popular now.

Love them.
Dislike Eveyn.
Harriet
Alice
Madeleine
Lucinda
Thea
Beatrice

I like Evelyn and Eleanor. Like Nell as a nn.
Florence is awful. Sounds like a spoilt brat who had flounced off in a huff.

I like all three, with Elisabeth as my favourite.

Leonora, Laurence, Fleur, Elin, Helena

Thanks all - v interesting feedback. So Eleanor looks the favourite. But I hate Ellie!

I prefer Eleanor, but Florence goes better with Elizabeth! smile

HolsW Wed 10-Feb-16 05:48:08

Love Evelyn!

The Eleanor in my family doesn't get Ellie! If you never use it, other people won't...

shalalala Wed 10-Feb-16 22:24:23

Oh really - I've been worried she'll just get called Ellie. Does Eleanor Elizabeth go?

SantinoFox Thu 11-Feb-16 10:31:44

I know a little girl called Eleanor and she gets called Lenny. It's a beautiful name and I think it's perfect with Elizabeth.

Seriouslyffs Thu 11-Feb-16 10:36:42

Hmm. Not sure about Eleanor Elizabeth, but Ellie-Ellie is sweet.
Felicity?

JellyBaby26 Thu 11-Feb-16 10:43:25

I never thought I would be offended seeing people say my name is awful!!

I think both are lovely as is Evelyn

kittylh Thu 11-Feb-16 10:44:46

I love Eleanor but hate Ellie. Always thought I'd use Nellie as a nn if I used Eleanor though! And I actually really like how Eleanor Elizabeth sounds.

AuntJane Fri 12-Feb-16 23:34:48

Eleanor with a nn of Lennie or Lena?

Florence Elizabeth.
