We have a M E G A N
If this bump is a girl we both like Anna.
Would those 2 names together sound silly to you?

No, why would they? Lovely names.

Just realised - you mean both having 'an' in. Nope, it's fine.

Sounds fine to me.

Anna is a lovely name and underused IMHO

Vijac Thu 30-Jan-14 14:29:26

Totally fine. I love Anna.

Dh worries because of the ending an and Anna might sound like nah nah nanah.
I don't think it is a problem.

Love Anna, was my choice for second child, until we found out we were having a boy!

I can sort of see your DH's point but put them the other way round - so start with Anna and it works well - you'll soon get in the habit. And they're lovely names.

Why the g a p s? I've seen people do this before when writing their children's names. So you can't be tracked down by someone searching your NN?

My DDs have names like that, in that one starts with the same syllable that the other ends with. It's never been a problem. You'd never be running the names together. Even if you were calling them both (to get their attention), you'd still have a break between. If I say "Megan, Anna", in my head, it sounds fine.

"Meganandanna" is a bit of a mouthful.

Sounds lovely to me! I don't think it's a problem at all. Congratulations!

My niece is called Megan and she's GORGEOUS!!
One of my favourite girl's names is Anna smile

Go for it!!! smile

Megan'n'Anna? Just say Anna and Megan.

Chelseylou Thu 30-Jan-14 20:23:38

Ye Megan and Anna is a mouthful just say them other way round x

Sorry to buck the trend, but I don't think they work together. Most people naturally put the older child's name first when saying both.

They're both nice names

Why does it matter what they sound like together? Isn't it better each name suits each dc?
