So we had pretty much decided on Anya (and removed Sienna from the running). Thank you all those who helped prevoiusly! I still love Anya but DH has said that he’s gone off the name and isn’t so keen 🤦‍♂️.

He says he prefers Isabella and thinks Anya is a little hard sounding. I definitely like it, but not as much. I’m not sure if I can compromise now. What do you think? Anya or Isabella for sister Sofia?

Anya, I think Isabella is fussy. Fwiw sienna has become very popular!

Isabella is funssy and overrated.

Don't like Anya at all. I do love Anna though.

I like Anya smile How would you pronounce it? ANN-ya or ARN-ya?

starkid Fri 24-Nov-17 11:54:01

ARN-ya is a bit softer sounding

I like both, but I probably prefer Anya, I don't think it's hard sounding -quite the opposite.

Anya smile

I prefer Isabella in general

However with Sofia, Anya sounds better

I would prefer Sofia and Isabel best though

Really don't like Sienna

I think with Sofia Isabella sounds better gives more Nn options to make it her own if needed.

I love Anya. How about Anna as suggested by a PP, or a combination of the 2 names you like - Annabelle?

Prefer Anya, it's a lot more unusual. Every little girl and their dog is called Isabella nowadays.
