I have four children already with names very similar to Fleur , Eva , Reuben and Nancy (don’t want to put actual names on in case anyone recognised me , we haven’t told anyone the sex of the baby).

Which of these goes best with the middle name Francis ?

Lucinda (Lucy)

Welcome to any other suggestions !

Not Freya, two names beginning with F is a bit much.

I like Lucy best from your list, or Beatrix. Don't like Ellen or Nora at all.

Btw, it's spelled Frances for a girl, Francis is the male version.

Nora Frances
Beatrix Frances
Ellen Frances

Those are all lovely and work well, I think.

Beatrix is my favourite but I'm not sure about it with Frances. Ellen Frances goes well

Not liking Nora, Ellen or Freya.
I'm ok with Beatrix but lukewarm on it.
Lucy/Lucinda is nice. Lucille?

I like Lucinda and Beatrix

Thanks , I know it’s not the usual way to spell it but Francis was a female relative spelt that way and the baby will have that name as a middle name and we want to keep the spelling

I think Nora and Lucinda go best with Frances.
My favourite from your list is Beatrix but I don’t think it goes as well with Frances.

Ellen Francis, lovely !

I love Lucinda and Freya.

But Freya Francis doesn't work, so Lucinda wins by default.

CakeRattleandRoll Sun 29-Oct-17 22:24:26

My favourite is Nora.

Ellen or norah

Beatrix. I totally adore it!!!!

Ellen or Lucinda go well and are nice. Nora flows well, but I don't like it personally. Freya is a bit cumbersome with Francis (too many 'fr' sounds) and I don't like Beatrix.
