DH really likes Anne but I’m not entirely convinced.
I don’t like Annie or Anna for sure but Anne is one I’m on the fence about.
Any thoughts?

Personally I think it's awful, especially on a little baby! Really dull.

It’s nice, but I do prefer Anna.

I really like Ann, without the e as a first name. I also like Annie and Anna.
How about Antonia as a name?

I think it's due a comeback same way Ruth is. I don't mind it

I like it, lots of great historical / literary Annes eg Queen Anne, Boleyn, of Cleves, of Green Gables, Hathaway... Could also consider Annabel though a bit yuppie and not a classic like Anne

Oh please no, definitely not due a comeback, Anna, Annabel are much nicer.

Nice name. The queen liked it.

MercedesDeMonteChristo Sun 02-Feb-20 19:58:06

I love it. Anne of Austria is who I immediately think of. Always with an E for

formerbabe Sun 02-Feb-20 19:59:56

It's so dull

I love Annie

Or Anna, Anya, Annabelle, Anais

ShesGotBetteDavisEyes Sun 02-Feb-20 20:00:45

A bit dull! What about Marianne?

MrsGolightyly Sun 02-Feb-20 20:03:24

I love Anna but not Anne or Annie.

TrippingOnSunshine Sun 02-Feb-20 20:09:56

Don't mind Anne it is a bit plain though.
Anna or Annabel are lovely. Or Anita??

user1493494961 Sun 02-Feb-20 20:23:28

Agree with pp, very dull and plain, use as a middle name.

midsomermurderess Sun 02-Feb-20 20:28:46

I like it. I am so bored of all the frilly names so beloved of many on this site, frilly and desperately aspirational, like the preposterous Ottilie.

It’s lovely grin

Blackcatpaws Sun 02-Feb-20 20:30:56

Noooooooo it's not and Ruth is just as awful. It's my middle name a truly terrible.
Both bland and dull and frumpy

LightDrizzle Sun 02-Feb-20 20:31:39

Love Anna, dislike Anne/ Ann

Unescorted Sun 02-Feb-20 20:32:04

Awesome name … with or without the e.

ChocoChunk1 Sun 02-Feb-20 20:35:09

Anais? Aurelia? Antonia?

villamariavintrapp Sun 02-Feb-20 20:41:59

I think it's too blunt somehow, like i find it quite hard to finish the word with 'n' sound . Prefer Anna or Annie, love Anya.

missyB1 Sun 02-Feb-20 20:43:52

Beautiful timeless name. It’s a family name for me, it was Granny’s name, I have an auntie Anne and my sister is Anne. I’m gutted that none of my nieces and nephews are Anne, and I only had boys.
Do it!

Hepsibar Sun 02-Feb-20 20:44:20

I love the name something different for the time.

PlantPotting Sun 02-Feb-20 20:58:05

I really love it and agree with @midsomermurderess there’s SO MANY frilly names now I find my head in a jumble (I actually love Ottilie though 🙈)

newtothis20 Sun 02-Feb-20 21:24:49

Love it! A real refreshing change from a lot of the more frilly names out there. Go for it!
