    My husband and I are thinking ahead to names for a 2nd child (I'm not pregnant yet). Our daughter, Margaret (Maggie, usually) was almost Anne or Annie and that is still a name we would love to use for a daughter.

    Here's the problem: Annie is the name we really want, but I'm not a fan of informal names on a birth certificate. Add to that disinclination the fact that Maggie has a formal name and that sisters Margaret and Annie sound - I don't know, off-balance.

    So, Anne is the other option with Annie reserved for the nn. Problem here is that our last name is a 2-syllable name that starts with "A," meaning that "Anne A____" sounds a bit choppy or a bit like Anna...

    So, what to do? Annie or Anne?
