Had this picked out since I got pregnant but suddenly thought that is may not go with my surname... too many n's?

Surname begins with B rhymes with Kennett wink

Thinking middle name Sophia but obviously most people don't use middle names when addressing someone.

What's the consensus?

Love the name Anna...there is a lot of n's but it still sounds ok to me

fine by me, but my dd has lots of ms and ns in her name

sounds lovely

It's absolutely fine. And Anna is a very, very fine name. smile

It goes fine, v nice choice

Anna is a much underused name IMO.

Not sure with surname though, how about Anya/Abi/Alexa/?

Annabel trips off the tongue slightly better with the surname. But Anna still works I think.

Ds1 had a classmate last year with exact same name! It's fine, go for it.

Think it sounds lovely...

It sounds fine. I like the name Anna, and Emma. I think they are having a bit of a resurgence

Wonderful name! I don't think there's a problem with the surname. Kenneth B... would have been worse.

Fab pleased it seems popular. I think it's really pretty without being too popular.

Hope it doesn't go through a revival though and end up on top 10 lists for the next 10 years!!

Or Benjamin, Gordon...

katnkittens Sat 10-Oct-09 22:23:24

Yea Gordon is def on my shortlist. Gordon Benjamin....

I like Anna. I prefer it to Hannah. I think the aches ruin Anna. Anna is not so popular either.

I don´t think it goes with surname.

Anna is fine in your case. (If your surname was Conda I would say no.)
Seriously, 99% of the time she is going to be addressed by her first name only so it doesn't matter too much about the surname, which is not problematic in your case. Anna is such a pretty name. Hannah sounds more harsh to me for some reason, even though it is more popular at the moment. Annabel is nice too but then some would say you have the problem of too many B's - no name is ever going to be perfect, so don't worry unnecessarily!

I don't know. a few tooo many Ns. But it is not that bad. I'm over analysing. Anneliese Bennett might run better, but then if you like the simplicity of anna, anneliese mightn't appeal at all.

Emma Bennett? Ella, Leah, Lydia grin

Jane Bennett had loads of Ns in her name!

Elizebeth Bennett had loads of Bs in her name.
