    Ordinarily I would say that Anne is classy and gorgeous in its simplicity. However, according to your signature you already have an Odelia Genevieve at home. Anne feels a little too plain next to the mysterious Odelia Genevieve - you would have to pair Anne with something magnificent and maybe a bit extravagant to equal Odelia’s great name. I’d be worried that little Anne might think of her name as boring in comparison to her sisters (despite the amazing family connection).

    I love Anne, and even DH (Mr Picky) just said that he likes it!

    I would also use a longer middle, something like

    Anne Evangeline
    Anne Eleonora
    Anne Persephone
    Anne Lavinia
    Anne Cordelia
    Anne Aurora
    Anne Vivienne
    Anne Seraphina
    Anne Georgiana

    Anne is a perfect example of the phrase "less is more". She is short, simple and sweet. No frills and no fuss. It's a name of simplicity and understated elegance. I agree that she would pair best with a more unusual mn. Go as wild as you want or choose a guilty pleasure name than that you wouldn't even dare consider for a first name. Anne Peridot speaks to me!
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Thanks all! It's nice to see that other people like it too! We'll add it to the list for future consideration if we end up with another girl!

    lexiem - that is something that I am worried about, and it's why we were looking for a longer form of Anne that would stand next to Odelia better, but we haven't come across one so far

    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.
    LOVE Anne spelled this way. Reminds me of the illustrious and fascinating Anne Boleyn.
