Those are our top 3 at the moment. We have a common boring surname and already have a Nina and Grace

Anouck is the usual spelling.

I prefer Matilda.

I love Anouk

I love both Anouk and Matilda, but I think Matilda sounds nice with the other two smile

I love Matilda, wanted it for DD but couldn't get DH on board sad
But Anya sounds nice with your other two too smile
How about Martha, that goes quite well too and a similar name to Matilda.

Anoushka/Anouchka like in the Joanne Harris books!!

I love Anya. I want that or Katya. (Love Russian names!)

Matilda is best.

I have a lovely friend called Anya so that's my vote! All are lovely names though.

Love Anouk, but prefer Anya with your other two names.

Anouk just reminds me of Robin Williams in Mork & Mindy "Nanook nanook!" was the catchphrase. Anoushka is much, much nicer.

Matilda. I love Annie too.

OhTinky Thu 10-Jan-13 21:33:01

I like Matilda and anya. Think Anouk is a bit harsh for some reason.

I prefer Anya by far.

Yika Thu 10-Jan-13 21:36:37

Anya is lovely, Anouk also pretty in theory but doesn't trip off the tongue very easily. Matilda a bit too trendy for me.

5madthings Thu 10-Jan-13 21:36:46

Anouk or matilda.

strawberryliv Thu 10-Jan-13 21:38:27

Oooh Matilda, definitely! Tilly for short is so cute

eilonwy Thu 10-Jan-13 22:07:26

Anya gets my vote. Anouk sounds a bit like a dog's name to me (sorry!). Matilda now very common...

I really like Anya and Matilda. Not so keen on Anouk.

Thanks. I am leaning away from Matilda as I can't bear Tilly (sorry if you have one). To me it sounds so sappy and its probably inevitable even if I don't use it myself!
We would shorten Anya or Anouk to Annie.
We've got ages and don't even know if its a dd. We're set on a boys name.
