We can't pick between these 2 names. Any opinions?

Itsagirllllll Sat 25-Feb-17 09:04:28

Forgot to say we will probably use one as the middle name so either

Rose Anya
Anya Rose

Anya. Rose is a bit over used now.

Anya - very pretty and a bit more distinctive.

Too much Rose now. Every girl round here has either rose or may/mae/mai as a middle name too.

I love Anya. Such a pretty name.

Both lovely- I know a fair number of both (this doesn't bother me my children have popular names) - prefer Anya Rose to the other way round.

Ham69 Sat 25-Feb-17 09:20:28

Both beautiful. I disagree that Rose is overused. Yes, as a middle name, but I have met very few children with Rose as a first name.

Rose anya sounds a bit like lasagne if you say it quickly. It doesn't flow like anya Rose

Rose is overused as a middle name, but lovely and classic as a first name. I like Rose Anya.

Ham69 Sat 25-Feb-17 09:32:13

Rose Anya is beautiful. You're not going to be calling the 2 names out together! I have 2 DC and only close friends and family know their middle names. Go with the first name that you love, not whether it "flows"!

Anya is nice, personally hate the name Rose. It's very "old lady" sounding to me, but i also dislike flowers as names, so no Lily, Daisy etc either.

Rockaby Sat 25-Feb-17 10:01:40

Both lovely. I don't think I can choose between them tbh <not helpful>.

FreeNiki Sat 25-Feb-17 10:29:31

Anya. So pretty.

paddypants13 Sat 25-Feb-17 14:23:06

Anya Rose. It's a lovely name.

paddypants13 Sat 25-Feb-17 14:23:50

If you like the sound of Rose Anya, what about Roseanne/ Roseanna.

Mottled Sat 25-Feb-17 14:34:27

I don't know any young girls called Rose just lots with Rose as a middle name so I think that Rose Anya would actually be unusual & very nice.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 25-Feb-17 18:56:28

Anya Rose.

SuperBeagle Sat 25-Feb-17 21:02:22

I prefer Rose, but Anya Rose sounds a lot better as a combination.

I prefer Anna to Anya.
