How creative can we get?

I like Annie and can think of Ann, Annabelle for a name that Annie can be a diminutive of... any others? I'm also very willing to use Annie as a birth certificate name but I'm curious to alternatives

Anwen - one of my favourite names of all time but double-vetoed by DH for being too Welsh and too Tolkenian.

It doesn't need to be short for anything - I know 2 people who were christened 'Annie'... if you like that name, just use it smile

However I think Annie is a gorgeous and acceptable name in its own right. It doesn't have to be short for any thing

When I meet an Annie I assume their name is Anna.

Angharad doesn't shorten to An. In Welsh ng is a letter not two letters, and is almost always prononunced as ng not ng-g.

I really like Lilianna or Rosanna.

I don't understand why you can't just call her Annie if you like Annie.

I know a few people who have one name in their BC but only ever called something else & it just makes life difficult on things like job applications, work email addresses etc.

Just call her what you're going to actually call her confused

Good point Nquartz

Makes me think of thay Simpson's character whose "name must never be spoke" grin

lilbubsmama Thu 16-May-19 13:29:14

@Nquartz I said in my OP I'm
More than happy to call her Annie in her birth certificate- I am curious to other forms of the name to see what else I like if I already like Annie

We have an Albany which we shorten to Annie.

daisypond Thu 16-May-19 13:40:32

Nancy is another of the standard familiar names for Anne.
