We want something fairly classic, feminine, not too girly.

Pinkjenny Thu 28-Aug-08 14:57:52

I like all of them.

Great names

rosealbie Thu 28-Aug-08 15:58:44

I don't mind any of them, just not really my cup of tea if i'm honest.

Out of the three I would go for Alexandra but for me, it would have to be Alex.

TwoWindyDays Thu 28-Aug-08 15:58:53

in fact you could use a couple of them
Alexandra Maria has a nice ring to it

Majeika Thu 28-Aug-08 15:59:26


ds would have been annabel

Jackstini Thu 28-Aug-08 16:00:06

Like Alexandra best - love Alex as a shortened version.

VictorianSqualor Thu 28-Aug-08 16:14:48

I like Alexandra, I had Alexandra/Alexander on ym short list for DC3, it was a boy so I used Alexander.

I prefer Annabel to Anna, not keen on Maria.

all fab...Maria is my favourite though

branflake81 Thu 28-Aug-08 16:20:17

I like Anna and Alexandra, not too keen on Maria.

Would prefer marie to maria
Like Anna but wouldn't call my child it.
Alexandra is ok but again would have to call Alex.

Knew someone called Alexa which I think is nice and a bit of a twist

dinkymum Thu 28-Aug-08 20:55:32

DSIL is Anna Maria which I always thought was really pretty, Alexandra's nice too!

frazzledoldbag34 Thu 28-Aug-08 21:04:50

Not keen on Maria at all.
Anna is lovely.
Alexandra is OK
I also like Annabel and Arabella (irrelevant but true) grin

Hulababy Thu 28-Aug-08 21:06:30

Of your three I prefer Anna.

jennifersofia Thu 28-Aug-08 21:10:25

Anna, but that is the name of dd3 (4 mths), so I am biased.

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Aug-08 21:12:04

Anna. smile

Not too keen on Maria, and you have to bear in mind Alexandra with at some point get shortend Alex.

theowlwhowasafraidofthedark Thu 28-Aug-08 21:17:19

Love Anna and Maria

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Aug-08 21:19:06

I do like Anna Maria!

mazzystar Thu 28-Aug-08 21:23:29

My name is Maria [inadvertently outs self] and I am sung to [West Side Story, Sound of Music, Blondie or Ave] at least once per day. Used to hate it as a kid, but cheers me up now [sign of age]

I really like Anna, less keen on Alexandra.

reginaphilangy Fri 29-Aug-08 10:14:04

I think they're all lovely smile

My favourite is Anna and least favourite is Maria if i had to chose.

I don't like the shortening of Alex for Alexandra, but Ally is lovely.

Weegiemum Fri 29-Aug-08 11:03:36

All of them are nice.

In order


But I wouldn't be hmm at any.

Hey! A name thread I don't go hmm at!

First time?

Weegiemum Fri 29-Aug-08 11:05:14

Alternatives - if you want them?

Katherine (and variations)


HonoriaGlossop Fri 29-Aug-08 11:08:56

Anna is lovely, really pretty - but unusual, I haven't met any Anna's at DS pre-school or school.

Along those lines I also think Alice is gorgeous.
