Annie for short. What do you think?

If you want Annie, just name her Anna. I'd have thought Angie was the natural nickname for Angela or Angelina.

I'm not terribly keen... It's a lot of syllables and I don't like the 'gel' sound.

I would also think of Angelina Jolie and wonder if you were a fan, but that isn't a bad thing!

I like Angela and Angelica, and Angelina is OK.

Angelina is a lovely name.
Usual nick names are, Angie or Angel.
Not sure about Annie.
How about, Annaliese, or Annica, or maybe Annabel.

Thank you all for your views X

Amanda, if you want to call her Annie, just do.
Angelina is a beautiful name, why not Annie 😀

Angelina is a nice name, but my concern would be that it might get shortened to Ange or Angie . . . If you like Annie then go with that as a given name, or Anna.

.... Ballerina
Annoying, self righteous cartoon/story book mouse.

Angelina Ballerina.
I agree with the others about the nickname (Ang/ Angie).
How about Anneliese? Annika?
Or just Anna or Anja? More unusual like Anwen, Annora?

Angelina is a stunning name. Surprised there is not more love for it. Annie is a perfectly logical shortening. Not sure why people are trying to push you to go for Angie. That is as logical as Annie, but not any more so.

I really dislike it, I'm afraid and would also automatically think it celebrity-inspired. A slightly less fussy version is Angeline, which is somehow better to me. I also would think like some others if you want to call your child Annie, then naming her Angelina doesn't really make that very evident.

I love it. smile

I don't think Annie will come naturally as a shortening though. Angie is more likely. I like Angie, though, because of the Rolling Stones song.

Angelina is a nice name but I agree that Annie doesn't seem a natural shortening.

My dd has a friend Angelina. She gets called Jelly!

Amandahugandkisses Fri 16-Sep-16 16:26:37

Thanks again guys X

I like Annie but I have a strong dislike for Angelina - think that might be due to husband stealer Jolie though.

I quite like Angelia as an alternative as it's unusual. But then I like Richard Marx.

Angelina is very pretty and sounds quite posh Imo.

Yes Jolie or ballerina. Not a name I would choose.
