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.Girls: Vesper Noble, Anouk Minnie, Yuki Beloved, Momo Flora, Constance Nellie, Esther Opal, Nanette Camellia, Bertie Alma, Bernadette Frances, Prudence Bellamy, Paloma Valentine, Shalom Galilee, Mary Valentine, Agnes Gardenia, Mercy Susannah.

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.18 // books, tea & names. ❤
