I like Annabelle too, but it's become quite popular so would like to stick with Anna or Annie.

What do you think?

What about Rory for a boys name?

Annie is a diminutive/short/affectionate version. If you go for Anna, you get to use both smile

How about Ane? The Scandinavian version of Annie pronounced with a long n and an ascending e

I like Annie and also love Rory.

Anna. Lovely name.

Definitely Anna - beautiful name and like someone said you can call her Annie as a pet name.

Much prefer Anna to Annie but think Anna is much higher up the lists than Annabelle?

Ivortheengine8 Sat 18-Jun-11 20:32:09

Is it Manic? I'm off to check that again! I think we would end up calling her Annie/Anna though anyway.

Does anyone think it is a bit too common?
I want something traditional but a bit unsual and Anna is about the only one my DH will agree to.

Love Anna and Rory. Annie could always be a nn for Anna!

SloganLogan Sat 18-Jun-11 22:11:39

Annabel, with Annie for short.

Rory is quite nice.

Anna. Annie sounds whiny

Mowlem Mon 20-Jun-11 01:09:02

Anna. Nickname Annie, if desired. Anna I think is more classic / beautiful for the birth certificate

Ivortheengine8 Mon 20-Jun-11 06:52:32

Anna is a lovely elegant name, Annie is too cutsie. You can always use Annie as a n when your DD is smallsmile

Bandwitch Mon 20-Jun-11 20:51:12

I would pick Anna or Annabel)le because Annie is fashionable now but is less classic than Anna. So even though I really like Annie it'd be my least favourite of the three to put on the bc.
