Little sister for Joseph

(37 Posts)

Hi all,
I'm looking for suggestions. I'm due a little girl in December. I would like her middle name to be Ann (after my mum) or possibly a double barrelled first name.
So far I have-
Lucy-Ann
Elsie-Ann
Lilly-Ann

But I don't love any of them.
Any suggestions?

Anne Marie
Joanne

What about Anna. It would be lovely with Joseph

Sophia!

Lovely ooh sound on both names!

Annalisa is nice. As is Annelisa ("Ann-UH-lisa").

Elizabeth goes with Anne, I think, as does Jemima. Basically a longer trad first name works with Anne as a middle name.

I wouldn't hyphenate, Ann is a good middle name.

I like all your suggestions, especially Lucy. My first thought though was Megan

Sarah Ann
Margaret Ann
Elizabeth Ann
Lydia Ann
Ruby Ann

My great grandmother was Mary-Ann, but Mary and Joseph might lead to a few awkward moments I guess.

I'm not a big fan of double barrelled names in general. What about it you went for something like :
Julianne
Susannah
Joanna
Rosanna
Marianne

Personally I'd go for Anna, but I'm biased smile , I think it lovely with Joseph (which was always on my boys names list)

BothEndsBurning Mon 27-Jul-15 16:09:02

Yes, I prefer wigglesrock's suggestion. Marianne is lovely.

Roxanne
Arianne
Alysanne
Suzanne

I wouldn't hyphenate, but that's just pesonal preference.

I like Verity Ann.

Thanks for the replies everyone.
I love the name annalise but after teaching a child with that name for 2 years it's slightly put me off.
I think I'd prefer to have two separate names than add Ann e.g. Joanne etc.
I don't want to detract from Ann and its significance.
I love Elizabeth but we already have one in the family, same as sophie.
I quite like verity. I hadn't thought of it.
Keep them coming, thanks everyone x

Lucy-Ann sounds way too much like Lucian

mrsb83 Mon 27-Jul-15 19:04:16

I like Meredith and Eleanor.
I like charlotte but OH doesn't.

Wow x-post!

mrsb83 Mon 27-Jul-15 19:05:15

Hadn't considered that Lucy-Ann sounds like Lucian.
Now off my list as that is all I will hear. X

Great minds.

Oh it doesn't! Lucian is pronounced Lucy-un. It's different.
