What do you think of Annabeth... I think it's sweet but I'm a little worried it might be a bit too Deep South American for a little Australian girl. Thoughts?

It made me think of Anna Nicole...

I guess I think it sounds a bit sweet but will your 26 year old daughter who is trying to climb the ladder in her career want a sweet name?

No. Just no....totally agree with PatG that it just does not age well.

Hmmm I don't really like it.

How about Bethany?

Yes, I tend to agree it does make me think of a cute American girl with pigtails and dimples.

I actually like it!

How about as a nickname, say for Anna Elizabeth or some variation of such?

I prefer Elizabeth and Anna as separate names, but I definitely prefer Annabeth to Annabel. I personally wouldn't use it but I don't dislike it.

I don't really think it'll hamper her job prospects. It's a combination of two pretty standard names, it's not going to have the same impact as Maddysyn-Jhade would, for example. I know I've seen Janemarees and Sarahjanes in professional positions.

On the other hand, it's not really my style. I'd prefer Annabel, or maybe even a hyphenated first name. I really like just plain Anna, too.

I like it!  

If your daughter doesn't like it as she gets older, she can always use Anna, or dare I say...Beth!

I went to uni with actress Annabeth Gish (who got her start in "Mystic Pizza" with Julia Roberts). She's from Iowa, not the Deep South. wink.gif

I much prefer Anneliese, or Anna Elizabeth with a nn Annabeth if you are really keen to use that name.

I dont think it will have any job implications whatsoever.



However it doesnt really appeal to me - I like Anna or Bethany but not Annabeth or Annaliese or Annabel.

It's ok but doesn't appeal to me

Hmm... have you been reading Percy Jackson?

If not, she's one of the lead characters in a kids book series pitched at 11-13yr olds.  Not a bad thing, unless you're worried about a stack of kids going 'oh, like in Percy Jackson'

I love it, I would use it if it wasn't so similar to my DDs name. I'd call her Beth for short  wub.gif

That's where I know it from!

I don't mind it.

I really like it.  It's in my 'archives'.  Like both its parts and the whole.  Touch of the flourish and
very feminine.

I like it OP!

I don't like it. I do like Annabel and Elizabeth and Lillian. Annmarie and Anamaria are fine they just feel very tied to a specific cultural identity to me.

Defying my general dislike of Beth, I do somewhat like Lilybeth/Lilibeth/Lilibet and have considered them, but all three are a bit "cute" iykwim and I think Lilibet is my favourite but sounds more British than American to me.

I don't mind it but prefer Annabel and Anneliese

That is very cool! I remember her as Agent Reyes in the X Files, and thought of her as soon as I saw this thread!

I presume she is related to the famous Gish sisters?
