How does this sound to you? I keep coming back to this combination but just wondering how it sounds to other people. Thanks!

My middle names (in that order). Sounds perfect to me!

It is a lovely combination. smile Frances is really pretty and in my opinion it is underused.

It only sounds a little strange to me as they are my DSis names but the other way around IYSWIM.

I'm not personally that keen on Frances, but I think this combination works fine.

I really like Frances.

Not too frilly, not too clunky.

Thanks all, there are other names i dally with but keep coming back to this!

Beautiful smile

Really lovely pair of names.

The name Frances is fine, but I dislike the nn Fran. Elizabeth makes an excellent middle name.

Really nice, but I must say, it depends on your accent. I would say Frances like dance, France, chance (like the a in 'far' not the a in 'Apple'). The nn 'Fran' I'm not to keen on either (it's the 'a' sound)

squoosh Wed 19-Mar-14 15:56:40

Well I happen to think it also sounds nice in my accent which pronounces the a in Frances likes the a in 'apple'.

Lovely names. DD1 is Elizabeth Frances - but I think it works just as well the other way round.

I like it.

Tiredtomybones Wed 19-Mar-14 22:39:31

Lovely. I've loved Frances since I first saw Dirty Dancing many, many years ago.

My daughter's middle name is Frances. I love it; unfortunately she does not share the love..

I'm pg and if its DD she's going to be Francesca Jane, but only because DP didn't go for Frances!

A superb, classic name. Gorgeous.

Think you've got the MN seal of approval. Both good names, lovely together.

Tallypet Fri 21-Mar-14 19:48:26

Beautiful name

So, so pretty. Classic and feminine. My SIL is a Frances and she's one of the most formidable women I know.

Beautiful names!
Dd1 has Frances as her middle names & if bump is another girl then her middle name will be Elizabeth.
Fabulous choices xxx
