I would also go with Florence. Vintage names such as this is making a serious comeback so I don't think it's seen as old lady-like as it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore the name Wren, but Florence has a plethora of nickname possibilities, one of which includes Ren/Wren (Flossie, Florrie, Flo, Flor, Flora...).Mama to Nora.
Griffin (Finn). Declan (Dex). Miles. John (Johnny). Graham. Ewan. Jasper.
Ruby. Iris. Eve. Ivy. Bonnie. Hazel. Esme.
Names hubby and I agree on for #2: Gwyneth (Gwen). Vivian (Vivi or Viv). Claire. Rhoswen (Rosie or Winnie). Alice. Eden (Edie). Marie. Anneliese (Anna or Annie).

Florence nickname Ren or Wren
Edit: I like Japanese names, so if I used Florence, I'd get the best of both worlds with "Ren" because its Japanese for "Water lily." But I could also see Ren growing into Rennie, which is cute to me, too.

Wren, definitely! I see it as a kind of unexpected, quirky, sweet, tomboy, girly name..like it can fit any kind of girl, from shy and reserved to loud and outgoing. And i think it ages well.. I can picture any age female with this name, unlike Florence where all I can picture is an old lady.
Maybe it's just me but Florence has a sick medicinal taste in my mouth when I say it. I can see why people consider it a pretty name, but I just don't think it is.
And honestly, if you plan on calling a Florence "Ren" anyhow, then I'd' just go with Wren in the first place.Alyssa*Ada*Lydia*Aria*Leah*Elijah*Peter*Paul*Calvin*

I'd definitely go with Florence. I like the versatility. There is just something I don't quite like about Wren personally, though I don't know exactly what it is. Also it is a little Ren and Stimpy to me, not that I think that is really relevant to naming a baby today.
This seems to be really split 50/50
