What do you think?

I have a DS George and now expecting a girl,

I like classic names but my only worry with Florence is that it might be a bit too faddy?

Personally, I'd go Erin. I also have a George and as pretty a name as Florence is, it is possibly a bit twee next to George as a name....

Erin's my chosen girls name I love it! Florence makes me think of my aunt Florrie so less of a like for me

I also weighed up Ruby Erin but decided Ruby was far far to popular round my neck of the woods

Erin is lovely. We know a few little Florences.

Florence is quite trendy indeed, even the Camerons picked it!

Erin is nice smile

My nan was called Florence and DD1 has it as her middle name, she is nearly 10 though so this was a while ago smile I love it.

Florence is lovely smile Perhaps getting fashionable but also classic and pretty.

Not so keen on Erin. It's a bit nothing-y with its lack of consonants, and getting a bit trendy along with Isla and Orla.

Erin is lovely smile not really keen on Florence. How about Erin ruby?

My nan's first name was Florence and her surname was George so I think it is lovely and they go together very nicely indeed smile

Erin is nice but a bit... strait-laced... if you know what I mean

Love them both! Erin quite popular in Scotland. Florence not v. common these days, although nearly everybody has an auntie flo (don't they?)

Florence is lovely, but it is fast becoming very popular.

Erin is lovely too, unfussy and with the added bonus that it can't be shortenedsmile

Erin is lovely - but then I might me slightly biased wink

for some reason dd is know as Errie (sometimes Errie Berry even though our surname is not berry - not sure how that happened hmm

Love Florence! This was my chosen name for dc3, but we are having a boy!

Erin. Florence is a bit 'now', imho

MrsMilton Mon 10-Oct-11 09:23:15

I love Erin. Classy and timeless.

I love Florence and it was on our shortlist but we've been put off by its popularity at the moment. Erin is lovely.

I was going to say that Erin is a name of its time while Florence is more classic but perhaps I'm wrong. Both nice names, I think Florence goes better with George but I think you have to like the nns for it Flo, Florrie, Floss, Flossy?
