To go with a very common surname beginning with S.

Love the alliteration of Sukie with your surname!

I like both, but especially Sukie.

I like both but prefer a longer given name, as I think of both as nicknames (although I don't think suki actually is). Susannah or Francesca or Frances with those as nn?
There was an actress suki smith, if that's your surname?

Hi yes we are looking at Francesca Susannah or Susannah Francesca

Frankie is a boys name to my ears, I know a little Frank nickname Frankie.

I prefer Suki - is it Japanese?

If you like both Francesca and Susannah enough to use either as a first name, then maybe you want to save one in case you have another DD? (sorry - might not be relevant if you already have 14 children and this is your last)

Sukie is a drink in NI which gives bias to my opinion. I prefer Frankie & Francesca as the longer version.

I love sukie and it was a hot contender to one of mine but....we didn't because it's an abbreviation of a name we didn't like.

Frankie i also love but ruled out for same readon

Sukey is an old short form of Susannah, as in the rhyme 'Polly put the kettle on'.

I like both Susannah and Francesca, but I think the two together might be a bit heavy. I'd go for a shorter, simpler middle name.

On purely practical grounds, if you're filling in a form, there isn't always room for two long names!

Depends what accent you have- in my lancastrian tones, both sound pretty bad. Midlands possibly as bad. Scottish - lovely. Home counties - pretty nice....
