Which do you prefer?

I wouldn't use the Halle spelling as I know someone who's name is Elle, but pronounced Ellie and she gets really cross having to tell everyone her name.

Love Annie, not keen on hallie

Halle is a name in its own right. Hallie is a nn for Harriet or Henrietta (in the same way that Hal is a nn for Henry.

Halle abs hallie are some name right just spelt differently? :S

I would pronounce them both the same, I just think there would be a lot of confusion over the pronunciation. Although I would say it's the same as Halle Berry.
I just personally prefer the spelling Hallie.

Annie is my favourite name, I just need to convince DH. It annoys me he doesn't like it.

Weren't the characters, the twins in that film with a young Lindsay Lohan called Annie and Hallie?

Annie, as nickname for Annabel, Anneliese, Anna etc.

ChubbyPolecat Sat 16-Apr-16 18:12:13

Yeah they were the parent trap! Does your dh like anna? Then you can called her Annie as a pet name

IoraRua Sat 16-Apr-16 18:13:58

Not keen on Annie.

MadameDePompom Sat 16-Apr-16 18:15:57

I'm not keen on Annie either.

Annie is lovely

If you go with Halle/Hallie there will be confusion over her name either way....believe me

Beautiful name though grin

Yes, they were twins in parent trap (my dd loves that film).
The only Anne name I know he likes in Anais (I pronounce it wrong and always in my head say anus...which I know is silly/wrong). DH lived in France as a child so he likes this name.

I quite like Annabel as a longer name with nickname Annie (although I still love Annie as a full name)

I have Annie, everyone is always really positive about it.

Not even sure how you pronounce hallie, like Halle berry or like Hal-y?

IHeartKingThistle Sun 17-Apr-16 23:21:07

I have an Annie too. Funnily enough lots of women have told me they love her name but didn't use it as their husbands didn't like it!

I really like Halle too.

Hallie just looks odd to me. Halle being pronounced Hallie isn't comparable with Elle being pronounced Ellie. Primarily because the latter is incorrect and the former is not.

Hallie is lovely ( I prefer this spelling over Halle)

Annie is okay, but nothing special imo

LadyAntonella Mon 18-Apr-16 11:24:52

I prefer Annie. Not a fan of Halle or Hallie really.

314inTheSky Mon 18-Apr-16 11:26:56

Like Icedtin, I like Annie short for Annabel or Anneliese.

not sure about Hallie. It's like a mash of Holly and Allie. It's just not quite a name. (imo)

MitzyLeFrouf Mon 18-Apr-16 11:34:40

I like Hallie.

Annie is a bit plain and dull for me.

Annie no contest. Hallie is just doesn't sound as nice. Would your DH go for Anna with Annie as a nickname? The naming thing is so hard. Currently going though this with a boys name!
