Also on my current list are


Thoughts welcome on them too! Thanks.

exactly what PT said

Thanks! Do you think "Anya Mary" works?

Anya Mary sounds really nice.

megonthemoon Tue 03-Nov-09 18:22:45

Like Anya and Mary - both on my long list if we ever have a DD but DH isn't so keen. DOn't really like the others so much.

Think Anya Mary works well

I love Anya and Mary

not keen on the others

Thanks for your help!

Do you think Anya sounds odd along side Jack (DS) and Henry (fave name for any future son)?

Do you think Jack and Henry would sit better alongside a more traditional girl's name?

i think anya zoe sounds nice
and anya goes well with jack and henry, dont worry too much about future namess just yet smile

megonthemoon Tue 03-Nov-09 19:20:54

i think anya works just fine with jack and any henry that arrives later!

LynetteScavo Tue 03-Nov-09 19:22:52

I love the name Anya!

QandA Tue 03-Nov-09 19:36:26

I like it too, it is unusual without being odd or too 'try hard' grin

Anya is pretty. I think Anya Eve is nice.

Evelyn - lovely
Magda - hideous but i love Margot so what do i know....wink
Zoe - lovely
Mary - lovely

cloelia Wed 04-Nov-09 20:00:33

I agree with boodleboot about Magda, sounds like a Bond bad girl to me.
Love Evelyn and Anya and Mary
How about Mary Anya as a sort of double or hyphen then you can create a nn as time goes on?

birdofthenorth Wed 04-Nov-09 20:22:07

Thanks for your help all!

I raised Anya with a pal today and her immediate reaction was "as in Anya-ism?" ie aneurysm... I am gutted to say this kind of put me off!!

mummyofevilprincesses Wed 04-Nov-09 20:33:15

I love Anya. It is so pretty
