Wren or Florence? Which would YOU prefer?
I like both of these names, although I'm not sure I love them enough to ever use them for a child. If I did use the name Florence though, I would want to use the nickname Ren. Since I clearly couldn't use both, I am wondering which one is better -- a feminine, classic (but almost old-lady) name with a cute, modern nickname or a nature name that is not as flowery and feminine. In order to get the kind of feedback I want, I think I'll ask it this way -- if your own name had to be either Wren or Florence, which would you prefer and why?
TIA, you Berries are the best!Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

Florence nn Ren, definitely! Wren makes a good middle name (e.g. the oft suggested Penelope Wren...) but, as pp(s) mentioned, there's just one syllable, no nn, no options for her to choose as an adult. I think it makes a better child's name than grown woman.
Florence is lovely and the nn Ren is so cute!

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
