So I have narrowed it down to 2 names, including MNs.

It will be between:

Primrose Alice (will go mostly by Primrose, but also happy to use NNs Rose and/or Posy from time to time)
Clementine Flora (I won't be using a NN, but I don't mind if others do)

I did toy with a second MN, but I think it would be overkill. I am really really happy with BOTH of the above and it will definitely be one of those. Will probably just take both names in and decide once I see her, but out of interest which do you prefer? Even if you hate both, let me know which you hate least wink.gif

Love the nn Posy so have to vote for Primrose! It's cute and I've never heard a child named that before (in 20 years of teaching)...

Tamm

I think the correct response you are looking for is "neither are my style, sorry" rolleyes.gif

Clementine Flora.
Clementine is on my list, hence my reason for wanting to poke Tamm in the eye.

I wish that DH would have agreed to either.   Both lovely but Primrose by a whisker as I prefer the nns.

Come on Tamm, didn't you see my OP? Which do you hate least? wink.gif

Not really into either of them (Clem and Prim = awful, and inevitable), but Clementine is definitely nicer. I think the middle names are interchangeable.

Primrose Alice.
Flora is a brand of margarine.
I love Posey/ Posie or Rosie as nn's.

Both are lovely names.

I suspect Primrose might increase in popularity after March next year, as that is one of the names of a charachter in The Hunger Games movie original.gif

Clementine Flora is lovely.  I have it on my list too! Love Alice, love Posie.

I think they're both beautiful names. I would also like Clementine, but hubby won't go there. sad.gif

I'd probably pick Primrose Alice over Clementine Flora - both of them are on my "I like them but DH said no" list.

#15 babychacha

Posted 22 January 2012 - 06:31 PM

Clementine is my pick....gorgeous name!

Not so keen on Primrose but do love Posy.

Tamm


That's your opinion, I happen to think they're both lovely OP. I even if I didn't, I wouldn't be so rude about it.

If I had to choose, I think Primrose Alice has the edge, but only slightly. And I love Posy as a nickname.

#19 momerath

Posted 22 January 2012 - 06:36 PM

Primrose! By a smidge, I think Clementine is lovely as well.

#20 Le-a

Posted 22 January 2012 - 06:39 PM

Clementine, it is on my girl list! With the NN Cleo.

I think I prefer Clementine Alice, though...

I like Clementine Flora

#22 librablonde

I adore both Clementine and Alice  wub.gif

#23 Freddie'sMum

Posted 22 January 2012 - 06:45 PM

Don't like Primrose - do like Alice.

Love Clementine - but don't like Flora.

So, to confuse the issue - I would go with Clementine Alice.

I like Primrose much more than I like Clementine.

#25 vanessa71

Posted 22 January 2012 - 06:48 PM

Clementine

Even though I love Alice far more than I like Flora, I couldn't possibly go for Primrose, it's one name but it almost sounds like two, with the dreaded Rose being the stock standard middle name. Clementine Alice would be be sensational!
