If I like Anna...?

My baby girl is due any day now and we are still debating names. I think my favourite so far is Anna. DH thinks it's OK but maybe a bit dull. So if I like Anna does anyone have any similar suggestions. I already have two boys - Will and Toby and new baby's middle name is likely to be Jane. Thanks!

Anna is not dull! It is classic and gorgeous! Try and persuade him! If not, names that feel similar.

Charlotte
Alice
Emma
Clara
Laura

Thanks Tickled, I agree, and hope he can be persuaded! He's against Alice because of the 'who the F* is Alice' song. Hadn't considered Clara before, that's nice.

How about Annabel?

Thanks, I do like Annabel but worry about the 'baby Annabel' connection!

Arianna?

Anna is lovely, very classic and would work well with your boys names.

Other suggestions:

Beatrice
Camilla
Lucy
Francesca
Harriet
Sophie
Emily

Hannah?

Love Hannah but surname begins with H so think its out.

Anna is a lovely name ... In fact I loved it so much we called our DD it. Only she always gets called Annie, which I love too. I don't think it is dull at all but elegant and classic. It means favour or grace which is rather lovely.

LadyBigtoes Tue 18-Jun-13 11:48:33

Oh I think first name and surname with the same initial is really cool!

I also love Annie Jayne but that has been vetoed I think for the musical connotations! Think will keep pushing for Anna smile

Jennifer Jayne sounds good too smile then she can be Jenni if she is girly and JJ if she isn't .

My baby girl is Anwen and we shorten it to Annie quite a lot - just a variation if you like Anna that is a bit more unusual.

Jaynebxl Tue 18-Jun-13 12:32:54

Shame cos my DD loves the musical and when she was smaller actually thought it was about her (American orphan with curly ginger hair?!) so could be a plus point??!

Jessica

learnermummy Tue 18-Jun-13 12:54:15

Unfortunately my dog is called Jess!

niffernaffer Tue 18-Jun-13 13:38:27

soontobe I am Jennifer Jane and I was known as JJ!!! At the time I hated it but from my parents point of view I now realise it was quite cute

Nina?

flopsy1974 Tue 18-Jun-13 13:46:12

Anna is a beautiful timeless classic name. You can't really go wrong smile

wigglesrock Tue 18-Jun-13 13:56:03

I have an Anna smile , she has 2 sisters both of whose names are on littlecherublegs list!

I also toyed with Nina and Juliet.

Can't go wrong with Anna. Lovely name, classic and pretty.
