Annabel Jane (family associations and I like Jane okay)
Annabel Eve (no family associations, I just think it sounds pretty)

What do you think?

I like Annabel Eve best. Both pretty though.

Vote for Annabel Jane. Love the simplicity of Jane and it's pretty rare these days.

Annabel Eve is on my list for a girl (should I have one). I am now toying with the idea of Annabel Eva or Annabel Rosa just to mix it up a bit. Middle names are harder then first in a way because you are just trying to find the right balance.

Annabel Jane is also good but my sister's middle name is Jane and she hates it. She finds it plain and dated. Eve is prettier IMO. Good luck deciding smile

Annabel Eve.

I haven't heard Eve as a middle name before, although it's popular as a first name.

Jane is rather staid IMO.

Annabel Jane. Annabel Eve runs together too much (Anna believe)!

Absolutelyfabulously Mon 11-Apr-16 21:35:16

Definitely Jane, even more so if you have a family connection which is what I believe middle names are meant for!

Both are nice, but I give edge to Jane for family connection.

I have changed my vote to Annabel Jane now after reading Creme's comment!! I completely missed this - good spot ;)

Annabel Eve is beautiful, why does it matter if it runs together to vaguely sound like a phrase that isn't offensive/silly or even noticeable? hmm

Annabel Jane is lovely.

I rather like Annabel Evie Jane.......

Melly, I think it's because once you hear it you hear it all the time. When I say 'Annabel Eve', all I can now hear is 'Anna Believe' and that to me would be a deal breaker for that particular combo of names. I guess it wouldn't bother everyone but it would me. Maybe the op will still go for it though smile

Annabel Jane is much nicer, it's a stronger sound imo. And bonuw points for the family connection.

Nothing really wrong with Annabel Eve but it feels a bit blander to me. Now someone has pointed out Anna Believe, I can't unhear that.

I hadn't thought of the names running together like 'Anna believe'... hmmm.
Perhaps it will be Annabel Jane then (my middle name is Jane, my Mum's name is Janet and my Great Aunt is Jean).
I think Jane used to be quite a well used middle name, but not so much now.

Annabel Jane is less of a mouthful. Annabel Eve is pretty but more vowels. Annabel is a lovely name :-)

Annabel eve

ShmooBooMoo Thu 14-Apr-16 23:35:25

Annabel Jane. Annabel Eve sounds like Anna Believe to me.

Annabel Jane, though Annabel Jean sounds nice imo.
