Honest opinions please - came across the name Aanya/Anya on an Internet names list and can't decide if I love it or hate it. Plenty of time to decide yet, but I'm looking for a name that isn't too common, yet isn't completely 'out there' either. I'm sure it wasn't this hard with my son!

It's nice. The extra 'a' is daft though.

Anya with one "A" at the beginning and another at the end is pretty. A third A make it looke like a typo.

Any a is nice. Aanya is stupid.

I much prefer Anya, but it was spelt as Aanya on the name list. If we use it we will stick to the one 'A'!

Aanya is awful. Anya is pretty.

Anya is fine.

Aanya is for people who can't spell wanting to spell their name to people for the rest of their lives til they get to heaven and finally crack, while screaming at St Peter:
"It's fucking Aanya you bastards, my whole cunting life I've been spelling this shit out"

Anya is lovely and a v cool character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Aanya is just daft.

grin I have to do that with my name! ^^
Thanks everyone, Anya is firmly on the list.

Aanya is so silly, I agree.

I work with an Ania, which I think is a beautiful spelling. She is Polish - Did you know Eastern Europeans use Ania/Anya as a nickname for Anna? Anna is seen as too formal and just for the BC, so Ania/Anya becomes the everyday name.

Always loved Anya, it's on the list.

Becoming quite popular around here - there were two in DDs nursery class and the latest baby girl I know born is also Anya. It's a very pretty name.

Lovely Michael Morpugo book called waiting for Anya

It's a favourite in our house

Are they the same name?

I would pronounce Anya as 'An-ya' and Aanya as 'Arn-ya'

I do prefer Anya though.

Anya is okay I suppose. Aanya looks really ugly.

squoosh Mon 08-Dec-14 11:02:25

Actually I've changed my name, I don't like either Anya or Aanya.

WowserBowser Mon 08-Dec-14 11:02:44

Aanya sounds like how Lloyd Grossman would say Anya.

WowserBowser Mon 08-Dec-14 11:03:13

Or maybe Craig Revel Horwood.

WowserBowser Mon 08-Dec-14 11:04:00

What've you changed your name to Squoosh ?

sillymillyb Mon 08-Dec-14 11:04:10

I like Anya, but agree the extra a is too much.

Can I also proffer up amaryn? I've recently discovered it and love it smile

squoosh Mon 08-Dec-14 11:06:39

my 'mind', 'changed my mind' is what I meant. Squoosh is still an ace name obv!

Purpleroxy Mon 08-Dec-14 11:08:15

Anya fine.
Aanya bizarre.
