I really like both, but think Fiona has a slightly prettier sound. Not sure if that makes any difference to you.Gwen

As someone else mentioned, Flora (well, in Aus anyway) is a very popular margarine/butter spread. I actually love the name, but my husband vetoed it straight away for that reason. But thats still my pick from Fiona. I was born in the mid-70s and when I was at school there were many Fionas. And I found each one of them to be prissy, know-it-alls who had a tendency to be bullies. Of course, not saying all Fionas are like this!! But that was my experience of them so Fiona is on my no-go listMummy to the gorgeous Alice Heather and the delicious Harry George
