    Pretty variations of Anne??

    Hello,

    My DH's Mum's middle name is Anne and it was also the name of my very favourite Nanna. If I have a girl I would like to use Anne as a middle name, with Iris as a first name but I just dont love Anne as a name I was thinking I could use a variation of Anne? Only ones I can think of so far are (none of which really float my boat...):



    Iris Annabelle
    Iris Annalise
    Iris Anna

    Thanks ladies!!

    My middle name is Anne! I like it but I have a longer first name which I think suits a short middle name better IYKWIM

    I like Anne too. I had a neighbour called Ana (pronounced Ah na) when I was a kid, thought that was cool.

    Ange
    Annika
    Anais (prounounced aneese...I think)

    Um...that's all I have for now. I love the name Iris by the way. Have fun deciding!

    Anais (prounounced aneese...I think)
    Its pronounced An-Nay, if DS was a girl she was going to be Averlie Anais... I was going to come and suggest that myself

    I *think* if you use the dots above to do ANA?S as in Ana?s Nin its pronounced Ahn-ah-is (which can sound like Aneese) but if you don't have the dots the emphasis is not there. Where as the perfume Anais Anais is said "Ahn-Nay Ahn-Nay.

    Where's Bath when I need her she's the french lover...

    Ah yeah - I've only seen it with the accent, so perhaps that's it!
