Why Did We Pick The Name Florence For Our Baby?

Florence was our second baby name, and was actually an easier process than picking our first baby’s name. This time, my husband refused to discuss names till we knew the sex (that didn’t stop me trying!).

However, once we found out we were expecting a girl, we both sat down and went through our name book and picked ones we both liked, of which Florence was our favourite, especially as it’s also an old family name.

Both Alex and I are known by short versions of our names, so we knew we wanted something with nickname potential, and we could think of many names for Florence.
