Though we're not pregnant yet, my fiance' is deadset on having a "junior." However, this Isn't something I like, as I wanted more original names for our kids, and, since my fiance's name is Michael, that's about as unoriginal as they come! Also, there are 8 Michael's in my family! But we've come up with a compromise. When/if we have a little boy, we are going to name him Michael, after his dad, but, we will call him Mac. I just love the name and think it would suit a little boy, as well as a man.

Florence Harding was a feminist and first woman to vote for her husband to become president. She was known as Flossie by friends, but The Duche's by her husband because she took charge. My grandmother was also named Florence. The height of the name's popularity was when Florence Harding was first lady, 1920-1923.

Love this name. If I have a daughter, it will be her name and we'll call her either Florence or Flo for short. I think Flo sounds really tough and Florence sounds really feminine, so she'd get the best of both worlds!

Still sounds a bit Gertrude-ish...but I think Florence may make a comeback, whereas Gertrude, I think, will forever be in the background. And perhaps, in 2030 AD, we may see a new generation of Janets, Brendas, and Maureens - and by this time Florence will be seen as 'dated' again, if more Florences than usual are being named in the next five years or so. If the'same thing happens to Brenda and Maureen in, say 2060 AD, then perhaps everyone may be ready for another dose of Sharon and Tracey.

Florence Nightingale the English nurse (born in the city of Florence in Italy of English parents in the year 1820 AD) made this name a favourite in the late 19th century - it was in the American'top 10 in the 1870s and again in the 1890s and 1900s, after which it faded somewhat and is a very rare name at the present time. Yet although it has a clunky image, I think this no-nonsense name is now ready for a comeback.
