    Just Anne?

    We're been thinking about honoring my husbands gran, who was called Anne. We've been thinking about all of the different An- names but what do you think of just Anne?

    We'll probably use the nickname Annie 99% of the time because we both love it. Also, we'd probably pair it with a more long, uncommon and interesting middle name to spunk it up a little.

    Aha. I have a relative named Anne I'd like to honor someday, and I also went through every Anne variant I could find, only to realize that I like Anne best. Anne is really quite uncommon, but everyone can pronounce and spell it. It's graceful and ladylike. It's also more of a surprise than, say, Anna or Annabelle, which are less interesting to me because I hear them so much.

    I absolutely love Anne with a long, uncommon middle name. Anne is short enough that if she ever wants a more fanciful name, she could go by the first and middle name.

    Combining the spellings of Anne and Ann, there were 782 girls born in the US in 2012 with that name.

    It's becoming a very uncommon given name.

    Anne will stand out. She'll have an unusual name that is instantly recognizable!

    Wow, I never thought Mary or Anne would become unusual names.

    Anne with an E

    is the best!

    I love this name, but then I grew up on Anne of Green Gables.

    Anne Cordelia?
