Hi all, I don't know the sex of our baby but if it's a girl then my DH and I like Rosanna, Annika and Matilda. Which do you prefer?

Annika. It sounds fresh.

Matilda is nice but overdone and I don’t like Annika.

There are an awful lot of Annies and Rose/Rosa/Rosies about though, and she’s quite likely to end up known as one of them, if that bothers you.

Annalise / Annalisa

might be others

I like Rose, I like Anna but I don't like them together.
I like Annie Rose.
I like Rosie.
I'm not mad about Annick or Annika I'd prefer Annalise or Annalie.
Matilda is nice but popular at the moment.

I like all of them. Especially Rosanna, maybe because I knew a lovely one.

Our adult daughter is a Rosanne always answers to Rosie as do an alarmingly high percentage of dogs😋

Rosanna not roseanne.

They're all very nice names, not too unusual, but not in common usage, iyswim.
Rosanna is my favourite. Although I love Matilda!
When's the baby due?

Dillydollydingdong · 23/07/2023 20:00

They're all lovely names.

Matilda feels like it will date to the 2010s-2020s whereas the others feel timeless. I prefer Annika and I also like Anya, Anouk, and Anoushka

I knew a Roseanna when I was in primary school, lovely name.

I know a lovely person called Roseanne.

Both are uncommon amongst kids today so either would get my vote.

Annika. Rosanna to me sounds old fashioned but not in the same 'cool' retro way as Iris, Violet, Ada. And there are millions of Matildas atm.
