Anne vs Anna vs ???
Posted 31 January 2013 - 12:14 PM
I like Anne but my husband thinks this will ensure that she suffers from a lifetime of stubborn chin hair and bunions. He prefers Anna but still isn't a fan.
- Firstly, is Anne/ Anna awful?
- Secondly, of the two, which do you prefer
- Last, can you suggest other names which could be shortened to Annie?

Annabella/Annabelle, Annastasia, Annaliese

Anne isn't awful though, and there won't be many of them so that's nice.
I agree with your idea of choosing a formal name. Not everyone could carry off Annie into adulthood.
I'd suggest Annabelle or Annaliese as an alternative. Or another name (that we considered for Rosie) is Rosanna.

My Grandma was Annie Monica Nell and it suited her SO much.
It was in our top 3 for girls names.

My DD's name is in the top 10 names but I don't know any other kids with her name and there are none at her daycare. Growing up Melanie wasn't in the top 10 and yet there were 5 of us in my year at high school!

I can't think of any other names that can be shortened to Annie that hasn't already been suggested.

Annie makes me think of the musical which isn't a terrible association (although me then singing 'Tomorrow' is terrible).
Only other names I can think of that haven't been mentioned are Joanna and Annabeth.

Not a huge fan of Anne sorry
"It's risky" said experience.
"It's pointless" said reason.
"Give it a try" whispered the heart...

I know a little called called Annie and I think it's fine as a whole name, but I would probably choose Anna myself!
