Anna - beautiful name, especially when said in an Italian accent!!!!!

I have an Anna, but Annie is kinda cool.Always think of the talented and beautiful Diane Keaton when I hear it.

Anna with Annie as a nickname. Anna is classic,Annie is a nickname to me personally.

Anna known as Annie. I has exactly the same thought process for DS2, who then turned out to be a boy. Love both names. We are a fan of Annie Rose, Alfie's sister, in this house.

If you're going to call her Annie, I'd say that you should just call her Annie! It's a really nice name smile.

Lovely name

I prefer Anna. But that is probably based on children I know with those names!

I would say Anna then you have option of what to use.

I have an Anna, sometimes Annie (only to me though).

Excellent name.

Anna, nn Annie, but Anna lovely just as it is.

Anne known as Annie, I would have thought. For some reason that makes more sense to me than having Anna as the formal name. Or just Annie. Very lovely either way.

I have an Anna who is known as Annie. Both names are lovely. Any ideas on a middle name to go with it, that might make the difference to which on you eventually choose.

Anna, lovely name. Annie is a nickname -- and one my mum Anne loathes--.

If you don't like Anna, just call her Annie. A lot of people will call her by her given name which would be a shame if you don't like it. If you like both, I think I would call her Anna and use Annie.

Annie is not a nickname's a name. Anna suggests someone elegant whilst Annie suggests someone cute. Which do you want your child associated with?

FushiaFernica Sat 27-Oct-12 10:23:15

Anna only because I know an Anna who is lovely. Annie I think of an old lady.

VolumeOfACone Sat 27-Oct-12 10:35:33

If you plan to call her Annie, just go with Annie I vote.

almapudden Sat 27-Oct-12 10:54:17

Anna. Annie is a nickname.

Then she's got the choice.

Plus it's always good to have a formal name.

annie, annie, annie..

I have an Annie grin

charlottehere Sat 27-Oct-12 11:04:53

Annie, I know a 10 year old and a 60 year old, suits both. smile

TessOfTheBurbervilles Sat 27-Oct-12 12:25:36

I just love Annie.

Although I must say, the name Anna is forever tainted for me, because it's the name of the utter cow girl who bullied me at school. Therefore I cannot see or hear the name, without feeling a chill down my spine. For that very reason, I cannot view Anna in a favourable way, so my opinion in very much biased by that.

simplesusan Sat 27-Oct-12 13:28:23

I would just call her Annie if that is what you intend to use.
