So, here’s the dilemma; I’ve been looking into family names a little more and found out my Great Grandmothers real name was [name]Anna[/name] ([name]Ah[/name]-na) although she changed it to [name]Mary[/name] to fit in when she came to US. My Grandmother was also [name]Anna[/name] pronounced same way, and she changed it to [name]Ann[/name] to fit in. My sisters mn is [name]Ann[/name] after Grandmother.
So, my husband thinks if we named DD [name]Anna[/name] ( [name]Ah[/name]-na) her name would always be said as [name]Ann[/name]-a and have to correct people her who life. I also am not a huge fan of that pronunciation. What do you think?
As a side note are there other ways to honor [name]Anna[/name]? I do love [name]Annabel[/name]. [name]Annika[/name] and [name]Anya[/name] not so much. Thanks!
