Hi I posted a thread already on quaint girls names, these are the ones we absolutely love!!! So DD is Molly, our middle name is going to be Nora(family name which we also love)
so
Florence Nora & Molly
Daisy Nora & Molly
Poppy Nora & Molly,
The middle name will be seldom used so don't let that sway your judgement, which sounds best with Molly. Btw, I know Molly & Poppy/Daisy will be overly cutsie for some MN's but I adore cutesey! I have a very mature, opposite of cute boring, harsh name & always wanted a cute, fun name(am 34 now & still haven't grown into my name!!)

Florence is a good name. Not so keen on the others, although I had family pets called daisy and poppy, which sways my judgement somewhat.

Another vote for Florence. Wish I'd had the courage to call DD Florence really.

I had a cat called Daisy, so that rules Daisy out for me, and Poppy is just too twee.

Molly is lovely though smile

though tbh I would go with the family name of Nora. Love it!

Florence as the others a bit cutesy with Molly, also just like Florence best of the three and Florence Nora is super!

For me Molly and Daisy/Poppy is a bit too matchy, especially Poppy. Also I think it is more important that the first and second name go together than whether the first name goes with the sister's name.

Eleanor/Nora is the best of all the names smile

I posted on your other thread smile

I think it should be Nora Florence. Somewhere in the middle of Florence Nora I hear the word 'snorer'.

Daisy and Poppy are too twee (as well as cutesy and matchy with Molly) as first names but would be nice as mns with Nora as a first name.

I think Nora Florence sounds absolutely amazing prefer that to the other way round

Poppy and Molly are a bit samey for me

Daisy Nora sounds lovely

Daisy and Molly are a bit similar but don't mind that so much

I love Nora Florence.
Definitely Florence out of the three. I had a great aunt called Florence, always known as florrie, lovely name.

tumbletumble Sun 13-Oct-13 07:16:45

I love Poppy but I don't think it goes well with either Nora or Molly, sorry!

yeghoulsandlittledevils Sun 13-Oct-13 07:19:14

I prefer Florence. I also agree that Nora Florence sounds better, as Florence Nora doesn't quite go.

Between Daisy and Poppy, I prefer Daisy as I have come across a prevalence of Poppies.

They're all lovely names but I think Daisy Nora sounds the best combination.

Molly and Florence

BlueStarsAtNight Sun 13-Oct-13 09:14:56

I like Daisy Nora best with Molly. It is quite cutesy but both are lovely names! If you went with Dlorence, you might end up with Florrie as nn which almost rhymes with Molly, I wouldn't like that.

DitsyDonkey Sun 13-Oct-13 11:04:42

I prefer Daisy with Molly

Notsoyummymummy1 Sun 13-Oct-13 11:28:08

Florence definitely - remember they're going to be adults one day!

ginzillas Sun 13-Oct-13 11:45:20

Love Nora with Molly. Would you definitely not consider it?
Not as keen on Florence. Daisy and Poppy both sweet but I don't think two names ending in 'ie'/'y' sound go very well. They're a bit much with Molly IMO.

elcranko Sun 13-Oct-13 14:39:25

I like Molly & Daisy best.

TidyDancer Sun 13-Oct-13 15:09:26

Molly and Daisy sound nicest together. That said, Daisy Nora slips into being a single name when you say it out loud so you might want to consider that. Florence Nora and Poppy Nora don't really flow too well.

I really like Daisy and Poppy but neither sound like adult names to me.

I like Poppy with Molly, all lovely names though.

Three Poppies in the new school year intake

Daisy

Nora on it's own sounds odd as a part of a full name to me. Eleanor Florence is very elegant, and Nora a cute nn that meets the OPs criteria (although it's just as likely that the dd will want a more formal/elegant name as she herself wanted a cute one - there are significant advantages to flexibility!). Likewise Florence Eleanor, although on reflection I don't see Florence as cutesy - I guess the cutsey nn would be Florrie?

My dd wanted to be called Poppy when she was little. She has a relatively cutsie nn, but at high school has opted to use her longer more formal name.

Florence Nora scans the best, though it has a trace, in my weird ears, of flippin' Nora....

Molly and Florence is lovely but Molly and Nora is amazing!! Poppy and Daisy are too similar to Molly in my opinion.

Mim78 Mon 14-Oct-13 17:13:31

I like Florence

Florence

YummyMummybee Mon 14-Oct-13 17:41:47

Thanks for the replies, I think Poppy is out, doesn't sound as well as the other 2 with our last name. I love Daisy so much & love that it can't be shortened as I'm not a big fan of nicknames. As much as I love Florence I hate the nicknames Flo, Floss, Flossie or Florriesad Inevitably she will get called one of those 4. Prince Harry's ex Florence was even known as Flee!!! If it wasn't for the nicknames Florence would be first choice hands down....

Re the posters suggesting Nora as a first name, not possible unforunately as my own name is a variation of Nora & I don't want to name baby after me even though some people do & its lovely but its not me!!

Would you consider Honor? It has some of the spelling of Nora without being Nora, and echoes the O sound of Molly without being rhymey. Honor Florence?
