Annie is one of the most open and optimistic, the-sun'll-come-out-tomorrow-type names of all, having been celebrated over the years in song (Annie Laurie), comic strip (Little Orphan Annie), folklore (Annie Oakley, born Phoebe), and film (Annie Hall). It strikes a nice old-fashioned-but-jaunty chord that still has appeal, but we do suggest that you consider putting a more formal version on her birth certificate.
Still well used, Annie was a Top 20 name from the 1880s to 1907.
