Alternatives to Hannah

Hello, what are some alternatives to [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]? I find it’s a little too common, I was thinking of [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f], but am open to suggestions :slight_smile:

Would you call her [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]? That would be a bit different.
I know a [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_u]Jean[/name_u] and think this is very pretty!

[name_f]Hannah[/name_f] is actually my name, and I’d like to change it a little, I’ve always wanted to, but thought it might just be a teenage phase! But I’m getting close to my mid twenties now and I still want to. I want to keep [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] in the name, mainly out of respect to my mum, but I’d like it to be a bit different, as everywhere I go there are quite a few [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]'s! So yes, I would use [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f], but would it get used? Or just always shortened to [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]? [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_u]Jean[/name_u] is also very nice :slight_smile:

Personally, I don’t find [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f] any more interesting/uncommon than [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]. She will still encounter other [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]'s whether her name is [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f] or just [name_f]Hannah[/name_f].

Alternative names that come to mind seem just just as common:

If [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] is the name that makes your heart sing, I’d say ignore popularity.

[name_f]Hannah[/name_f] is not my style. What about [name_f]Sanna[/name_f] or [name_f]Sanne[/name_f] (pronounced [name_f]Sanna[/name_f])?

I’m not a fan of [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], but would think about these variations:

[name_f]Anneli[/name_f] or [name_f]Annelie[/name_f]
Hanneke or [name_f]Anneke[/name_f] or Janneke

I think my favorite alliterative to [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] is [name_f]Hannelore[/name_f]. I knew someone with this name when I lived in Germany and I fell in love with it! And if it’s the full name, it’s less likely than a double-barreled name like [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f] to get shortened to [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]. [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] and [name_f]Anya[/name_f] are good choices too.

I love the name [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], although I’m pretty biased lol. I like the name [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]-[name_f]Rose[/name_f], I actually went to high school with one. If you want a variation of [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] maybe [name_f]Hana[/name_f] or [name_f]Ana[/name_f] might be your style.

I also like [name_f]Hadleigh[/name_f], [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f], [name_m]Henleigh[/name_m], [name_m]Henlee[/name_m], [name_f]Hallie[/name_f], [name_f]Harlow[/name_f]

Another name with the same meaning as [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] is [name_f]Ana[/name_f]ïs

What about [name_f]Savannah[/name_f] :slight_smile:


Maybe [name_f]Shoshana[/name_f] or [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]?

One of the girls in my sons parent toddler class was named hannalise. I’m not exactaly sure on the spelling but it sounds very pretty. You could also use hannalisa.
