I know a Florence I went to school with, very snooty and stuck up, liked to make a point about how her daddy always bought her things e.g a horse. Wouldn't name a child Florence purely after knowing her.

FloatyFlo Tue 20-Feb-18 16:52:04

I know three. Two children and my cat grin One of the children goes by Flossie

weebarra Tue 20-Feb-18 16:53:52

None, but it is my DD's middle name.

piglet81 Tue 20-Feb-18 16:57:54

Just one (aged 2). Don't think she has a nickname yet.

cordiality Tue 20-Feb-18 17:00:25

I call my one Floss or Florrie, or Flofee or Fluff. Or Pickle. But her friends call her Florence. She is one of 3 in her school.

Cosmoa Tue 20-Feb-18 17:30:22

Quite a few, old and young. But I also I know a girl names Florencia which I think is much prettier!

Cosmoa Tue 20-Feb-18 17:31:13

Named* Florencia

Isadora2007 Tue 20-Feb-18 17:32:16

Two- an 8 year old Flo and a 4 year old Flossie.

Florence is definitely the most popular girls name in my area. Most of them are still only babies and go by Florence but one or two have been shortened to Flo.

Songofthesouth Tue 20-Feb-18 17:40:17

Oh actually one goes by Florrie

DelphiniumBlue Tue 20-Feb-18 17:41:27

I think there is one in 7 out of the 8 classes I teach (7-11).

Smellybluecheese Tue 20-Feb-18 17:44:10

Two. And it’s my daughter’s middle name.

abivelvet Tue 20-Feb-18 17:47:07

Four, aged between 1-9. It's very popular these days, Flo is the common nn.

SleepingInNewYork Tue 20-Feb-18 17:48:19
