It was my grandma's name... I like it but more for a middle name. When we were out shopping we met a little girl named Flossie (which was my gmas nickname) and I asked her if her name was Florence but she was just Flossie.

I like it, but I don't like any of the nicknames that go with it (Flo, Flossie), so I'd never use it as it would drive me nuts when people nicknamed her.

On my like-o-meter I would give it about 7 out of 10

It's easy to spell and pronounce and has a somewhat pleasant sound. I like that it is not typical of most girl names and the -ence ending makes it a little more unusual.

It just doesn't excite me much. I definitely would like to see other people use it, but it just seems a little dull to me.

It's nmsAA. . . just too older-fashioned for my own tastes.

I like it but I personally wouldn't use it unless it was a family name.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
