I adore Anna, it's classic and suits any age. It's the only name I really love for a girl.

However, I mentioned it to DSis and her response was shock "but everyone will think she's a 50 shades baby!"

So, does anyone hear Anna and think 50 shades now? The character in the book is actually Anastasia I believe, but shortened to Ana mostly.

I have an Annabel shortened to Anna. Havent had any 50 shades references made. Annabel is also a fairly timeless name.

I have an Anna who is 3. It never crossed my mind, that people may make any connection whatsoever with that utter drivel! grin

DD1 is an Anna. (2.5). Timeless and classic.

Not met another child with name in my neck of the woods (London).

Never had any issues or comments about 50 shades, thought most people who read it not likely to admit it?? hmm

I haven't read the 50 shades book. Anna is a beautiful name.

Anna is the name of my not yet conceived second child! I love it, please don't taint it with 50 shades references (or advertise it on here so more people use it - I don't think it's overused in my area). It's a great name.

Was going to name my daughter this but we have a surname beginning in L and was a little concerned what her name next to her peg would read if there were more than one Anna in the class.
