I know this has been done before but I can't find the others. Just wanted opinions/ ideas on a few names I like, but can't choose between?

Poppy Florence
Daisy May
Gracie (again with Florence as middle)

For boys I like


And then I run out of ideas! I already have H name for my DS so can't have Henry as I orginially wanted as sounds very similar. I don't like anything too quirky so it's difficult!

My daughter is Florence.

I wanted a nice old fashioned name, so I looked at the names of her great grandmothers, the choices were Florence, Jessie (Scottish for Janet), Lena and Molly.

My son is Henry, with Dylan as a middle name. The only other boys names I wanted were Edward, Edmund, Oscar and Dylan. I did think of Great Grandfathers, but they were all John or David.

Friend of mine has Stan and Ray, they are nice boys names. I also like Albert (Bertie) and Frederick (Freddie).

So much choice, I do like your choices though.

I don't really like Poppy or Daisy.
Gracie is cute but I would go for Grace with Gracie as a nickname
Rosie I really like (and, weirdly, wouldn't feel the need to christen Rose, Rosa etc like I would with Grace)

I like George but not Louis (I do like Lewis though)

I love Florence, it's a family name & it's so pretty. Henry Dylan is a lovely name & I like Albie (for Albert). A relative suggested Teddy the other day & I quite like that! Always liked Edward but can't stand Ed or Eddie as nicknames!
Manic- I love Rosie too, it's not a name that many call babies anymore (or just any that I know of!) but not so keen on Rose or Rosa so would definitely stick with Rosie on its own!

If I had another boy he was going to be Edward, Teddy for short, Ned can be short for Edward too.

A friend of mine has three girls, Grace, Pearl and Ruby - all lovely names. Another old fashioned name I like is Esme, very pretty too.

I like Florence too, not that many around.

Don't like Daisy May.

Florence is nicest.

How about Iris, Violet, June, Mabel, Verity, Tabitha, Posy, Polly, Rita?

These are more unusual but not quirky.

You really like flower names! Bit too cute for me but I vote Louis from boys list. What about Bernard?
