Looking for suggestions of girls’ names as above please!
I have some tenuous connection to Denmark and Germany and like the names but would need something that works in the UK too.

I like
Annika/Anneka/Anneke
Annalise
But DH is not keen

Further suggestions welcome!

I would warn you now anything spelt with -e on the end is sounded -a and will lead to a lifetime of telling people how to pronounce/spell your name or just giving up and accepting your entire workplace says/spells your name wrong.

Also no-one English can pronounce Tove.

Thanks all!

How is Signe pronounced please?

thepatchworkcat Thu 08-Feb-18 18:40:57

Yes Anna I take your point!
I’m used to pronouncing e at the end of things as I speak German but you’re right, most English people wouldn’t...

Here is the link to Danmark Statistik with the most popular names from the first half of 2017.

thepatchworkcat Thu 08-Feb-18 19:52:18

Oh I love so many of those names!
But they don’t all work with the surname.
Thanks for replies.
