Go with what you like - 2 Ns.  Spelling your name out as a Way Of Life can just become second nature, no biggie.  Due to Ethnic Name, I always give my name-with-instructions without being asked, like "Monteagle-that's-all-one-word-with-an-E-A-G".  I like my name and I don't mind spelling it to people.  I also think not being spelled the same as the US State makes it look more person-name-ish.

That is exactly why i like it spelt 'Indianna' so it feels more like a name not after the character or the place

Since you’re naming after a place it makes more sense to spell it the way it’s known.
I don’t see how an extra letter  is somehow more feminine

I think I liked the spelling because its not after the place or the character... amd double n looks more feminine because of the name 'Anna'

I prefer just one ‘N’.

Go with what you like, there are so many variations of spelling names these days that people get the easiest of names wrong anyway!
Congratulations!

Is it possible to steer away from another I name?

I can see letters in the future addressed to ...

Miss I  .... ??? Ahh, but which one?

If that's your reasoning I'd go with the 2 N's and just be prepared to have to spell it/correct people at times :)

People would get used to Indianna if you used it. It's fine. It's your kid,  pick what you like.
I went to school with a Dianna. I wonder if for similar reasons instead of Diana.

I think you should use the double n if you prefer it - congratulations!

Congratulations!

I have to agree that having the same initial could be annoying. when they choose or are given matching things it is really helpful to be able to put a letter on it somewhere. Our twin girls shoes are usually half a size different and heads are different sizes too - so hats and helmets are adjusted differently etc.

That said Ivy and Indi are a super cute sibset... so ignore me you’ll work it out. But 1 n I think

Congratulations!

I prefer one ‘n’ like the state or the fictional archaeologist  but I wouldn’t worry about having to spell it. I have one of the western world’s most common girls names for centuries and still have to spell it every time. I enjoy life regardless.
