Just Annie. Do you like it? Looking for some feedback

Mrsknackered Sun 15-Oct-17 17:22:56

I'm not a massive fan, think maybe it's a little boring?
I do however love Anna, Ania/Anya and Anni (I believe is Finnish and pronounced more like Arni)

I like it!

I prefer it as a shortening for something else; Annabel, Anita, Anastasia maybe?

But it's still nice on its own.

I love it!
We have an Annie, but it is short for something else.

Little orphan?

I think it's fine, but I don't love it.

Sophronia Mon 16-Oct-17 00:53:39

Love it

DramaAlpaca Mon 16-Oct-17 00:55:10

Love it, but prefer it short for something.

EssentialHummus Mon 16-Oct-17 01:09:09

Short for Anthea maybe?

I loved-to-hate the character Annie, in an episode of Butterflies: she broke the heart of dear sweet Adam. I fondly remember wanting to enter the story, and sing the Clout song "If she doesn't come back, I'll be your substitute..." to Adam.

But I DO like the name Annie; it would be a welcome retro-Victorian "breath of fresh air" in a world of Madisons & Paiges!

I like it.

Best friends daughter is an Annie, but she's Tiana on her BC

I almos started this thread! I love it and seriously considering it if I have a girl. I thing it's really sweet for a little one but not to 'girly' and it sounds quite cool on an older girl/woman too.

Noooooo (sorry), my name is Anne and I got called Annie or Anne at school. It is such a boring name, I have always hated it with a passion. There was no one else in my primary or secondary called Anne, there were a couple of Ann-maries, as much as its nice not to have every other child with the same name as yours it is not so nice if it is because your name is so dull no one else would lumber their child with a name like it.

It is such an old name that when I went to work at 16 half the middle aged women in the office where called Anne/Annie. Lots of people when I introduce myself say "oh you don't look like an Anne/Annie", because they are assumed to be middle aged women with grey curly hair!

Also all the dull side characters in books are called Anne/Annie, so the heroine is Sienna/ Charlotte/ Rose etc, and her dull frumpy friend is called Anne/Annie.

Tiny have you not read Anne of Green Gables grin

Tinty Mon 16-Oct-17 14:06:24

TheRollingCrone Yes I have read Anne of Green Gables and she was awesome, you are right smile, but I obviously have a hang up about my name (I have no middle name to use either, thanks parents!).

I used to spend quite a lot of time thinking of different names to change mine too when I was a child and I never have grown into my name yet! Maybe when I am really old I will like it.

Love it wink

I think it's a beautiful, simple and classic name.
