hello. am giving my daughter two middle names as they are family names but which sounds better

[first name] Sophie Anna [surname]

OR [first name] Sophia Anna [surname]

thanks v much in advance!

Sophie Anna I think - saves the surname sounding like yerranna

nice name

Sophie Anna.

I like Sophia a lot. But with Anna it doesn't flow - but then again - how often will people say the whole lot together?

displayuntilbestbefore Wed 04-Nov-09 16:45:49

all the time if Sophia is the first name and Anna is the surname!

ThePhantomPlotter Wed 04-Nov-09 16:48:33

It's not though is it? Unless I've read the OP wrong?

displayuntilbestbefore Wed 04-Nov-09 16:51:15

I read the OP as saying Sophie as first name and Anna is the surname because of her putting first name and surname next to each name
- OP, is that right or wrong?

displayuntilbestbefore Wed 04-Nov-09 16:51:51

or are they ideas for 2 middles names with first name before and surname after?
I'm confused now!

I assume these are the two middle names OP refers to, not the first names and surnames.

Is the family name Sophie or Sophia - or can it be either?

I think it has to be either Sophie Anna, or Anna Sophia. Sophia Anna doesn't flow.

Prefer Sophia to Sophie but if used with Anna I would use Sophie

i hope your first name and last name don't have two syllables

displayuntilbestbefore Wed 04-Nov-09 17:21:20

i must have got it wrong blush
Think point about syllables in first and surnames a good one

Kotek Wed 04-Nov-09 21:25:30

hello and sorry if I wasn't clear, the two middle names are to be Sofie or Sofia and Anna. Surname sounds a bit like Jones.
thanks for all your feedback, it's really helpful.

I live Anna Sofia, that doesnt help tho does it!

If they are both middle names, then it doesn't matter that much.

Anna Sophia sounds the best. I know a couple of girls called this.

diddl Fri 06-Nov-09 08:51:55

I think eithre is fine!

Brightfield Fri 06-Nov-09 09:39:58

Sophie Anna. Lovely!

MmeLindt Fri 06-Nov-09 09:42:59

Sophie Anna sounds better than Sophia Anna.

Or Anna Sophia.

Are you German, Kotek, or living in Germany?

CarryOnDancing Fri 06-Nov-09 13:04:59

When she is being a little monkey I think Sophie Anna flows much better when said in haste- Sophia Anna turns into a bit of a tongue twister.

Although I prefer Sophia alone, Sophie Anna is lovely!

Are you any closer to a decision?

Jojay Fri 06-Nov-09 13:07:06

Anna Sophia gets my vote.

What's your first name? (Not yours, the one for the baby grin)

thanks,
The Sophia Anna combination seems to get the thumbs down from most people.
so i think it will have to be either Sophie Anna or Anna Sophia.... I can agonise about these two options now for the next few days grin
any more comments appreciated.
I don't live in Germany but my husband has German heritage.

Thought there might be a German connection. I believe that Anna and Sophie/a are popular in Germany at the moment. Several of DD's kindergarten friends were either one or the other.
