Anna is very nice. If you like classic names how about



Mamaz0n Wed 18-May-11 19:17:39

Anna is lovely. timeless and beautiful

Minnieheehee Wed 18-May-11 19:18:24

I agree - I'm an Anna, known as Annie and my friends is an Anna, short for Annabel

I am an Anna and think it travels really well across Europe and the US. It's more popular now than it was when I was a kid but still classic. What about middle names?

Lonnie Wed 18-May-11 19:37:25

I have always found it quite plain and dull (no offence to the Anna's) it just doesnt do it for me I will say..

Hadnt thought about a middle name tbh! Still open for suggestions on boys names...I like Robbie but DH says NO!!!....

Lovely classic name, will never date, and I don't think there are many baby Annas out there at the moment.

I had an Anna 13 weeks ago, all I've got have "ooh lovely comments" She's my third daughter and funny enough its the name I've been most sure about, although strangely it didn't come up for the other two.

I have a 9 month old Anna and she gets lots of compliments on her name. I know a few adult ones but no other babies or young children. I (obviously) think it's lovely!

Jellyrollgumdrop Thu 19-May-11 08:42:10

Def think itll be Anna!!!!

Snookered if its a boy though!!! brew

Anna is gorgeous. Have one in the family otherwise it'd be on my list.

We have an Anna-baby and when she was born, just about every single person said "what a beautiful name." I was v pleased as I'd thought of it very early in my pregnancy and it really stuck with me. Plus I don't know any other Annas.
And sorry to say, I was so sure I was having a girl, I didn't think of any boys' names.

I really like it. It is safe, but it is also very nice. It'll never be rare but I don't think it'll ever be in the top 20 either.

But just in case you're still thinking, other names like Anna that would go with Eve are Joy, Faith, Nina, Belle, Ruth, Mary

MeantToStopAtTwo Sun 29-May-11 10:31:04

I really like it. As others have said, timeless and classic.

You could choose something like Annabel or Anastasia if you wanted her to have a more exotic option for when she is older.

52Girls Sun 29-May-11 10:37:24

My choice for a girl.

CristinaTheAstonishing Sun 29-May-11 10:39:32

Anna would go very well with Eve and both are pretty names.

katz Sun 29-May-11 10:43:11

i've got an nearly 6 year old Annalise who's Anna most of the time. Its a name that receives complements and whilst its traditional it doesn't seem as popular as other traditional names

If its boys name your look for what about Sebastian, Seb for short

katz Sun 29-May-11 10:46:29

just looked and it was 64th in the UK in 2010 - Anna that is.

belgo Sun 29-May-11 10:48:21

If you want another pallindrome for a boy, what about


muminthemiddle Sun 29-May-11 20:53:25

Anna is lovely.

Sylvaniasandwich Mon 30-May-11 19:18:57

I know a couple of siblings called Anna and Eve.

Anna is a lovely beautiful name - very popular but still so classy.

DH and me like Anna for a girl (we find out wednesday) Its really the only one we agree on. We already have an Elisa.
