    Middle name for Anna

    Anna is one of our front runners for dd#2 (due very soon). My top two contenders for middle names are Juliet and Katherine. While I LOVE the beauty of Juliet with Anna, I also like the idea of calling her Anna Kate. I love Anna but sometimes feel like it may need something extra. If we name her Anna Juliet, I would only always call her Anna. You've all been so helpful already! Thanks for opinions! Oh and dd1 is Claire Elise.

    I really love both names!!! I ended up picking Anna Katherine because I like Anna Kate. (I also know a girl who goes by her full name Anna Catherine pretty much all the time, and I love that as well.)

    I really love all three names involved here--Anna, Juliet, and C/Katherine--but I chose AK because I just think Anna Katherine has better cadence than Anna Juliet! I would maybe like Ann-Juliet as a compound name or Anna Juliette where there was a strength on "ANN-a julie-ETTE" instead of a strong "ANNA JUL-iet" or something. But Anna Juliet didn't seem quite as nice to me as Anna Katherine/Anna Kate

    Futurekids will have 2-syllable French surname.

    I voted for Anna Juliet. I'm in the South, and Anna Katherine is one of the most popular double names around. It feels bland and tired to me.

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah I'm concerned that Anna needs a more interesting middle name than Katherine. I just like the option of using the middle name sometimes. I wish there was a nickname with Juliet...
