Me and my partner had the name Florence picked out from the moment we knew we were pregnant. We’ve struggled to agree on a middle name but we both like the name Penelope so it’s looking like Florence Penelope is the strongest contender at the moment. My question is does this flow well? Does it sound choppy or too long? What do you think of the name. Surname will be Brooks. Thank you

Florence Penelope Brooks
Yeah, that's a pretty nice name! Very substantial, haha. I personally prefer 'Penelope' and think 'Penelope Florence Brooks' flows more nicely. But if Florence is the name you agreed on early on, maybe that's a sign! It's also a good name. Classic, timeless, has an old-fashioned charm to it, yet it's still modern and very much on that 'vintage names' trend. Its memorable, solid, strong, but also feminine and elegant. I think the name ages very well.

My daughter's best friend has 2 young daughters called Florence and Penelope. She calls them Florrie and Penny.
Both are nice names, but to string them together is too long.
Here are a few suggestions: Florence Penny, Flora Penelope, Penny Flo .

i like it but make sure you have a nickname ready bc it’s quite a long name... such as flo or flea

It's okay, just a bit long and has a lot of syllables. I'd pick a shorter middle name, myself. Or shorten Penelope. Maybe you could 'honor' a loved one you miss with their name as the middle name, if it's not already what you're doing.

That's quite a moniker. Florence is a long name. A shorter middle name would work better to me. Florence Penelope does have nice flow, though. Just think of this baby having to write those names out on every application she ever fills out.

I wish other people would use proper traditional names, instead of mispelled, modern, meaningless names for their children.
'Florence', means 'of flowers'.
'Penelope' from Homer's Odyssey, was the wife of Odysseus, who waited seven years for him to return from the Trojan War, and in the meantime refused all other suitors.

It’s a mouthful and it’s choppy . Florence should have shorter middle name.

I do like both names individually. Florence Penelope flows ok, but at the same time it is a mouthful.

It's a little different, but I think I would get a little tongue-twisted saying it.
