We are still very very early on, but are starting to think of possible names for our baby due in August 2013.  Here is a bit of background...

If the baby is a girl, then the middle name will be Anne (family name). Our surname begins with P, and has a strong 'LL' sound at the end. Due to the '_AP' initials I think that a name that begins with a vowel would work so we avoid initials that spell out words.

DP likes the name Bree and Brielle, but I don't like the initials BAP and the strong L sound in brielle would clash with our surname.

So far names that I like are:

Imogen
Isla
A/Emelia

Open to more suggestions though as DH isn't convinced yet...

Olive
Una
Anastasia

I like Imogen and Amelia but would stay away from an A name if you are going to use Anne.

Emily Anne
Elisabeth Anne
Olivia Anne
Ursula Anne
Ella Anne

It's hard to find a name to go with Anne that starts with a vowel.

To fit your criteria (and also avoiding ending in a vowel before MN beginning in a vowel):

Astrid Anne
Amethyst Anne
Emerald Anne
Emmeline Anne
Ingrid Anne
Iris Anne
Isis Anne
Indris Anne


ETA I think Bree would be a bit strange running into Anne and thus creating a full name out of the two.

Emily Anne is pretty! So is Imogen Anne.

Or how about,

Eliza Anne
Elora Anne
Indigo Anne

Hmm, this is hard! I don't think A names sound good with Anne and then names like Ella, Isabelle etc sound a little silly with an ell surname. Is your surname Parnell?

I thought of some others too, Ariana, Indianna... But they just sound silly with Anne! I think your going to be very limited in your options if you want to have Anne as the middle name. Not many vowel names go with it as it already starts with a vowel.

Honestly, I think if you avoid names starting with F and possibly P and Y then any other letter would be okay. A lot of people have word initials - I did ubtil I hyphenated my name on marriage - and it seriously never came up, even amongst those people who knew my MN.

In any event, how about:

Alexis Anne
Amy Anne
Aura Anne
Eden Anne
Elliott Anne
Evie Anne
Iona Anne
Iris Anne
Opal Anne

I dont think Annika Anne or Annabelle Anne (from a PP's list) work well at all - also would avoid any name with ann or anna in it - so cross of Arianna and the like, agree with Gudrun that any name that makes a full name with anne is not good - cross off Bree, Lee etc (which dont start with vowels anyway.)



Some A names work ok, if the sound is quite different to Anne - Alicia Anne seems good to me


and any other vowel starting name as long as it doesnt have too much L sound, due to your surname - so cross off Ella

Olivia Anne

Emily Anne

Imogen Anne

Evelyn Anne

are all good

Lol I hadn't even put that together, thanks Gudrun. Definitely not Bree!

That's not our surname, but it is very very close! Almost exactly the same sound so for the purpose of this exercise lets say yes original.gif
I agree pinkblue, we are going to be very limited with options. I guess that's why I'm starting now.

Thanks for your hell everyone! I'm liking Olivia and Alexis, there are a few others that would go on the maybe list too original.gif

I like the 3 names on your list. All will sound good with your surname, but Imogen will flow best with Anne.

Some others:

Edith Anne

Anais Anne

Arwen Anne

Evette Anne

Adele Anne

This one's a challenge!

What about...

Esther Anne
Audrey Anne
Elodie Anne

Would you be willing to consider Y a vowel for this purpose?  Then you could have

Yvette Anne, which I think works nicely.

I don't see a problem with vowel-starting, only with vowel ending. I can't imagine a combo more classic than, say, Elizabeth Anne?

I did like Imogen Anne off your list, OP.

I would avoid Ann-starting names like Annabel even though I love Annabel itself.

Workable:

Aisling/Aislinn (pr. ash-ling, ash-linn) Anne
Alice Anne
Elizabeth Anne
Elowen Anne
Elspeth Anne
Esmé Anne - I know Esmé ends in a vowel but I find -may to flow better into Anne than a lot of the end-in-a names.
Erin Anne
Esther Anne
Inez Anne
Isabel Anne
Iris Anne
Irene Anne
Isis Anne
Opal Anne
Opaline Anne

OP's issue was that she didnt want the initals spelling anything - ie *AP and she crossed Bree off the list because she didnt like the intials spelling BAP - not sure YAP would pass her criteria biggrin.gif


Of course, Evette is a legitimate speling so that might be suitable. wink.gif
