    I love Florence! Florrie is my fave nn (I'm not a fan of Flora), and Flossie is okay, but does remind me of dental floss, and Lassie (like the dog) for some reason. Florence in full is definitely my favourite though.

    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.

    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.

    I voted Florence nicknamed Florrie.

    I know you aren’t keen on other nickname suggestions, but I thought I’d add that I LOVE Fleur as a nickname for Florence.
