My baby girl is due any day now and we are still debating names. I think my favourite so far is Anna. DH thinks it's OK but maybe a bit dull. So if I like Anna does anyone have any similar suggestions. I already have two boys - Will and Toby and new baby's middle name is likely to be Jane. Thanks!

I love the name Anna. Unfortunately it doesn't go with my surname so I'll never had one. I think it is beautiful.

Anna was the forerunner for DD1 until a late night conversation changed our plans and she decided to arrive the following day somewhat prematurely.

She became an Erin instead. We also had Sophia and Imogen on our shortlist (glad we went for neither since every other little girl round here seems to be called one of them).

Anna is beautiful and understated.

How about Ruth?

We toyed with Anna for ages then settled on Annie then had a boy anyway.

My other shortlisted names were:

Hannah
Sophie
Clementine
Ruth
Martha

Anna is a fab name. Would have been a contender for DD if our niece wasn't called Anneliese. We used it for her middle name instead

Formic - how do you pronounce Anais? Is it Anna-ace or A niece? Or something else? Have often wondered!

Alice

Anais or anya. Tess

Anna is a classic lovely name, but I honestly prefer Annie!

lollydollydrop Fri 28-Jun-13 22:04:05

I cant decide whether Anna is nice or just boring. I swing between the two

Anna is gorgeous. A classic. I love Anastasia and Annabel too, and just plain Anne or Annie.

I would put it in the same category as

Anna is lovely.

I have an Alice (4 years) though and that song has never been mentioned!
