We have decided on the name Evelyn as a first name, and have come across a problem with the middle name.

I love Evelyn Flora Beatrix

OH adores Evelyn Florence Beatrix but I think this sounds a bit fussy and frilly.

I've now come to you all for assistance! Which do you prefer?

Both much of a muchness on the frilly scale to me.

Agree with Crystal....much of a muchness. Go with the one you like best rather than how it flows. Does it even really matter if they match? The only people that will even know her middle names will be you and her. I'm always baffled by the thought process that goes into 'matchinig' middle names.

Flora is nicer than Florence, and flows better with the other names as well.

Flora. Florence is getting very popular as a middle name.

Florence! But I have one so might be biased!

Meh. So similar it makes very little difference imo.

I'd go with Florence, I just think of spread when I hear Flora.
