Middle name Juliet.

I love Anna, however, think Arianna goes better with Juliet.
Plus, might be a lot of little Anna's popping up after Disneys Frozen has become so popular. (Sighs the mother of a 2.5 year old Elsa)

I think I prefer Arianna

Only if you say it "Ari-Anna" though, I don't like "Ari-Arna" at all.

Depends where you live, Arianna will get shortened to Ari, which is nice, but sounds like someone mispronouncing 'Harry'. Also could be a bit pretetious again depending on area. I like Anna, it's so pretty smile

As a Frozen hater I vote for Anna. It's classic and timeless.

Arianna is frilly and flowery and princessy and everything I wouldn't want my daughter to be basically.

Annie is nicer than both.

If you really like both then go for Arianna as you could potentially use Anna as a nickname!

Isn't the Frozen character called Ana (Ah-na)?? I prefer Anna to Arianna.

Arianna is a very pretty Welsh name. I love it but Anna is just as sweet.
Tbh our opinion is useless. Wait till you're cuddling her then decide. Don't go with anyone else's opinion.

Anna is lovely and a classic. I don't not like Arianna at all sorry far too fussy for my taste.
Anna Juliet has a lovely flow it it

My vote is Anna.

Rhubarbgarden Fri 27-Jun-14 18:49:40

Anna. I also like Annie and Anne. Arianna is too fussy

PestoSurfissimos Fri 27-Jun-14 18:51:29

Arianna ~ so pretty

TheLeftovermonster Fri 27-Jun-14 20:24:46

Nothing wrong with Anna either, but Arianna has more personality.

Middleoftheroad Fri 27-Jun-14 20:28:52

I'm an Anna so biased. I've always liked it and it doesn't get shortened. It's not that common though i am pre Frozen! I think anna is timeless too. Biased x
