To go with Francesca and in honour of a relative.

Is peony a bit...naff? A bit pretentious?

Due today and suddenly very aware that im not set on a middle name for possible dd!

I really like it but it does remind me of the 5 year engaged (film) where they talk about the flower shop lady liking peonies but they're actually being rude...
it's a very pretty though!

My very favourite flower but my inner 9 year old just hears 'penis-y'.

Might be a bit much for a first name but I really like it for a middle.

Thanks everyone smile

Francesca would definitely be first, it's the only name we agree on!

I'll see what Dp says when he gets home, I doubt he'll go for it but might be swayed by the family connection!

What about Pivoine? (the french version I think)

Peony - pee on me..... Is what DH said when I suggested it for DD. It's super pretty though, and my favourite flower.....

Well it got a resounding no from Dp who simply responsed with 'peo-nis'

Ah well! Thankyou for all the lovely comments flowers

Ah shame your dp doesn't like it.tbf I quite liked it till I read all the willy references to it on this thread!

It might do as a middle name. Though I've been put off by the comments and I'm not easily swayed

Not a pretty sound. Prefer Posy.
