    Phronsie (Sophronia)?

    Do you like this name? Is the nickname substantial enough or do you like the full name for a given name? Do you think my daughter would absolutely hate it? It's the name of the littlest daughter in Five Little Peppers and How They Grew.

    The nickname is not at all substantial enough, it sounds silly and sort of frivolous on its own. If i were called Phronsie, i'd definitely want Sophronia to fall back on.

    It's very quaint. Resembles Fonzie. I like Sophronia but i don't think i'm sold on Phronsie in real life.

    Is it substantial enough? Absolutely not. On the other hand Sophronia is stunning.

    Very much dislike Phronsie, despite the book. Looks like some obscure branch of neurology. But Sophronia is spectacular; very interesting literary/historical namesake, extremely uncommon, but close enough to Sophia to be wearable.
