Thread: Annabel Lee
April 27th, 2013 02:33 AM #6
I personally love Poe, and I tried to talk my sister into namng her daughter Annabel Lee (She ended up going with Annabelle Marie). Usually I would agree that that sort of run-on name is tricky, but if you really like the literary reference I would say it supercedes that rule. If not, yeah it sounds a little awkward. On the other hand, people don't use middle names that often, so if you love the sing-songy, classic sound of Annabel (I personally adore it), then don't worry too much about it.Sequoia Orion born November 2014Other favorites: Cytheria, Arcadia, Seraphina, Caspian, Gideon

Even if you like it, do pause to think that you're naming someone else... are you sure she'll like it?

I actually know a Annabel Lee. Firstly I didn't notice it because she has two middle names but after founding out I thought it was...strange. The sounding is OK but the poem connection is no good IMO.
Maybe that's because I am not a fan of Annabel but would find another name. I guess you mom is either Anna or Bella so it's easy to find other way to honor her and Lee complements almost everything.
