    It's weird though. What's the point in a silent letter when Ren (which sounds exactly the same) is in the name already? As a Ren, I just don't get why the 'w' is considered necessary? You say it more often than you spell it anyway.

    Florence nicknamed Ren gives you both names too


    Sorry, lol. I think it just grates on me because it sort of feels like I'm reading that my name isn't good enough without the 'w'. Though I understand this thread is about choosing between Florence nn Ren or Wren.

    Wren. I love nature names, I love the way it sounds, and I'm not so keen on Florence, I don't like the "Flor-" names so much.

    Florence (nn Ren/Wren). I like Wren as a name, but baby Wren grows up into a woman who has to get a real job. Even if it's just the name she puts on her resume and diplomas, I'm one of those who favors having a full name.

    If it was my name I would prefer Florence. Florence has been steadily growing on me lately and I just think there's something cute, quirky, and beautiful about it. I know it's vintage but it feels so fresh. I picture a beautiful and out-going, dark haired girl. Plus there's nickname options, which Wren doesn't have. I do like Wren as well though. But if it was my name, definitely Florence.

    I would rather be a Wren, but I would rather name a daughter Florence. Not sure if that helps.. lol.
    Wren fits my personality, but I feel like Florence (along with many nicknames) could fit any personality.
