Dated? Nice? What's the feel?

Snusmumriken Fri 01-Feb-13 12:37:20

Very nice.

smellsofsick Fri 01-Feb-13 12:38:32

Love it. I only know nice Hannahs so has positive connotations for me. Also doesn't it mean grace?

Numberlock Fri 01-Feb-13 12:38:56

Bear in mind, for anyone who's from Lancashire, like me, it will be pronounced the same as Anna. smile

I have a Hannah, she is called bananas by everyone (even on her school report grin ) I don't know any other Hannahs either so its uncommon without being 'out there'.

Funny Missy, round here the world and their best friend has a dd called Hannah in the 15-25 yr age bracket it seems!

Really? I wonder if they have all congregated in your corner of the world then. I've never met a 'Hannah' before.

ghoulelocks Fri 01-Feb-13 12:49:38

Just checked, it was number 41 on the list for 2011! I'm very surprised...still like it though!

Harrysmummysarah1 Fri 01-Feb-13 13:30:46

Lovely lovely name. A bit common which puts me off a little bit but still lovely smile

WaynettaSlobsLover Fri 01-Feb-13 13:32:13

Pretty and I like it grin

ghoulelocks Fri 01-Feb-13 13:36:43

harrymum, normally common puts me off. I want feminine but not hyper girly, I always think I'd be embarrassed at my male dominated (at least in leadership work) if I didn't have a strongish name that was too pretty, e.g. a flower name. Maybe that's silly...

I like Helena too (first female judge)

It was my choice is number four was a girl, he was a boy .... smile

Want a number 5 so I can use it.

It means God is gracious. Certainly not common any more.

DialsMavis Fri 01-Feb-13 13:44:20

Love it, but my SIL is Hannah and I love her so that might be why!

Longdistance Fri 01-Feb-13 13:44:48

I know a Hannah, she's 9, and she's just such a lovely girl. So calm, and fun, and loving.

Harrysmummysarah1 Fri 01-Feb-13 14:17:38

My sisters baby is Helena lovely name. She was also considering

If you love Hannah I would go with that though

Maebe Fri 01-Feb-13 14:24:36

Really lovely. Doesn't seem that popular around here.

NymphadoraTonks Fri 01-Feb-13 14:35:33

Love it, first choice if I ever have a girl

Floggingmolly Fri 01-Feb-13 14:38:20

We considered this for dd (who's now 11!), but rejected it because it was everywhere then.

RubyGrace17 Fri 01-Feb-13 17:40:41

I think it's a very sweet name smile


AvonCallingBarksdale Fri 01-Feb-13 17:43:26

I've always loved it, was v keen for DD to be Hannah (or DS had he been a girl.) Lots of Hannahs round here and DH not keen. I think it's a lovely name.

We've got a Hannah (nearly 3) not met any others her age - we love the name

Mikethemonkey Fri 01-Feb-13 19:56:09

I know six Hannah's under five its nice but much prefer Anna.

Hannah and Anna are both nice names. Quite safe though

mizu Fri 01-Feb-13 20:05:35

I have a Hanna - probably wouldn't have chosen it if my DH wasn't Muslim and we had to have a name that was Arabic and English but love it now.

Peekabooooo Fri 01-Feb-13 20:07:14

lovely name, down point is she may get the nickname spanner like a Hannah I know does.

sw11mumofone Fri 01-Feb-13 21:06:02

Hannah is a bit dull IMO. Think Anna is a bit cooler. Depends what you're after though I suppose. And Helena is quite nice - but pronounced he-len-a as opposed to He-lane-a.

CruCru Fri 01-Feb-13 21:22:27

Very nice. Will never be a disability unless your surname is Spanner.

SoggySummer Sat 02-Feb-13 00:16:58

I like it. Spelt the same backwards as well grin

I like it. to me it's a bit like Zoe in that it's pretty classless and not likely to date.

dimdommilpot Sat 02-Feb-13 01:26:04

I know 3 under 2 and 2 over 25. I call 1 of them (over 25) spandooler (affectionately of course). Its a nice name (hannah that is).

Antipag Sat 02-Feb-13 16:51:17

I'm a Hannah and I do get called Hannah Spanner but I'm not scarred for life by it! My best friend's DD is called Hannah and they have called her Hannah Spanner since birth thinking it would make her immune to teasing and when she started school she or called Hannah Montana!

iliketea Sat 02-Feb-13 19:04:00

Love it. Pretty, easy to spell and it"s a palindrome. Plus I've never met a Hannah I didn't like.

I may well be biased smile

SoulTrain Sat 02-Feb-13 19:13:37

Love it! It's my sisters name but I would have definitely wanted to use it if I had had a girl!

ThenWeTakeBerlin Sat 02-Feb-13 19:15:13

I really like it smile I know a few who are 20s/30s, one over 60 and one toddler! It's classic and won't date. And it's a palindrome smile

BikeRunSki Sat 02-Feb-13 19:20:27

I like it, and know a few of assorted ages from 40s to toddler. I do prefer Anna though.

I always associate Zoe with mid 70s. There were 8 others in my sister Zoe's year at school.

GraceAndVirtue Sat 02-Feb-13 21:36:50

I have a 20 year old Hannah and a 79 year old aunt called Zoe!
