So I am loving Annika, and mentioned it to DH and he didn't say no - which is a good start. I think he just thinks it's a bit weird as he's never hear it before. But he loves Annie, so he can call her that for short.
Would love some mn suggestions. Annika Rose sounds lovely, but every second person seems to use Rose for a mn lately.
Family name I could use is Isobel, but Annika Isobel is a bit of a mouthful. I think it needs something simple and short.

Annika is really NMS, but if I had to pick a middle name for it, definitely Rose. Or Mae/May

Annika Louise is the first to come to mind.

The only girl with this name that I know personally has the middle name Lily which flows nicely.

What about Annika Belle? Kind of uses the family name but in a way that flows a bit better. How many syllables does your last name have? If it has a few (like Robertson), a one syllable MN might be a good idea.
Btw I quite like Rose - if I have a girl I will definitely be using it as it was part of my maiden name. I think if you don't like anything else, I'd go with it, especially as Annika is a bit different (but gorgeous).

Annika is gorgeous. How about Annika Jean?
Posted 19 February 2012 - 08:34 PM
I know every second baby girl has the following as middle names - but they are gorgeous:
Or what about:
Annika Sophie / Sophia
Annika Marie / Maree
Good luck deciding. Annika is a beautiful name !!

This is the name I had picked for my dd, except spelt Anneka Marie.
I did get the Anneka but DH and I agreed on a different middle name of Theora.

Short and sweet:
Less short, still sweet:
Annika Penelope (Okay I just love this, carry on)
Annika Rosemary (If I wanted to use Rose, I would probably use Rosemary, Rosemarie, or Rosamund)
