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.

Love it, although prefer Peony Francesca to Francesca Peony.
Hope the delivery goes well.

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.....

Love it. Also love the flower.

Lovely!

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.
