I adore Florence (see my signature), and I also adore Florrie and Flossie. Flossie is my favourite nn for Florence by a smidgen though. I actually love Flossie and Florrie as standalone names- very spunky and Victorian. I do have a bit of trouble imagining a middle aged Flossie though, so I see your point.Mary, Esther, Constance, Susanna, Flora, Odelia, Dossie, Yuki, Louisa, Bettina, Thomasin, Bessie, Camellia, Magnolia, Mabel, Axelle, Paviana, Magdalena, Evangeline, Josephine, Una, Raphaela, Francesca, Gardenia, Theodora, Endellion, Rosemary, Daphne, Antonia, Pascale, Frances.

I absolutely adore Florence, though I don't think a nickname is necessary. While I don't love any nickname options for Florence, I do prefer Florrie over Flossie. Flossie does have vintage charm, but it also makes me think of dental floss. Out of the two, I think Florrie would work better as a standalone name.
Here's a fun fact, I actually know a female Florian who goes by the nickname Florrie. She would be 16 this year.Ebony // 19 // Australia // Professional and Creative Writing student
