Iris, with Florence second. Not keen on Beatrice or Nancy, sorry.

Beatrice, the others are all quite common now.

I like Florence and Beatrice best - Bea is a very sweet nickname. Personally I don't like Iris, to me, it's a name from my grandma's generation, like Marjorie, Doreen or Alma for example.

Iris is my fave. I’ve liked it for about 20 years. I like any old fashioned names really

Florence is my favourite.

Nancy my least favourite by a long way.

Florence or Beatrice

But it doesn’t matter what we think - what do you like best?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 19-Feb-18 22:04:29

❤️ Nancy.

Iris or Beatrice

Mrsknackered Mon 19-Feb-18 22:28:50

Iris by miles, then Florence (because I like Flo/Florrie), then Beatrice (only because I like Bea, I much prefer Beatrix)

Right down at the bottom, Nancy. I think it's got such a vile sound to it - sorry!

For me it’s Beatrice, Nancy, Florence then Iris. I’m particularly fond of the first 3 but Iris whilst very pretty, I don’t like quite as much for some reason. All lovely names though, any would be a good choice!

TheWizardofWas Mon 19-Feb-18 22:38:27

Don't like Iris eyeballs passport face recognition at all! Florence is lovely. Then Nancy. Then Beatrice.

LarkDescending Mon 19-Feb-18 22:47:34

Florence, by miles.

I don’t get the appeal of Nancy at all.

Florence is way to common. Nancy no. Iris great. Beatrice my fave. Congrats x

Buntysoven Mon 19-Feb-18 23:36:25

I've got a Nancy so obviously I love it! Your other names are nice but Nancy wins for me.

junebirthdaygirl Mon 19-Feb-18 23:38:19

Love them all but especialy Iris.

windchimesabotage Mon 19-Feb-18 23:39:51

Those are all gorgeous names except for Nancy which I dont hate but I just dont think is on the same level as the others.

LOVE Iris but I fear it’s about to explode in popularity and become the next Isla.

We have a Nancie at our pre-school and it just sooo suits her, I love it! I prefer that spelling too for some reason! Iris is lovely but like others have said I think it will become popular again soon not that that should necessarily bother you.

Beatrice sounds posh to me and a bit of a mouthful! Florence lovely. But I love Nancie. It is such a personal thing OP.

mum2be2boys Tue 20-Feb-18 10:00:15

I like all of the names! In order of preference:

1. Nancy
2. Iris
3. Beatrice
4. Florence
