  1. Yay, my home turf :) I don’t think I actually know any babies born here last year…but I can believe that those would be their names!

  2. Any idea where the popularity of Florence is coming from? I don’t recall ever knowing, or even meeting, anyone named Florence.
    Offhand the only famous Florence I can think of is Florence Henderson and I can’t imagine Mrs Brady is currently influencing baby names in Oxfordshire.
