I’m six months along with twin girls and I have two girls already Fienne [name]Genevieve[/name] Evina and [name]Maud[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Iris[/name]. I was really excited to see that the name of the day was [name]Sanne[/name] (sah-na) because that’s a name my husband and I have been looking at for a while now. While neither my husband or I are directly from the Netherlands, both of our great grandparents are and we have a strong Dutch heritage. I really wanted my girls first names to be well-known names in the Netherlands, hence Fienne and [name]Maud[/name], but I’m not sure about these next two babies. I love [name]Sanne[/name], but my husband argues that no one around here will know how to pronounce it (he has a point). He’s mentioned changing the spelling to [name]Sanna[/name], but I prefer the original spelling. Any ideas or comments about [name]Sanne[/name]? Also, do you have any other name suggestions?
Quick question, hoe exactly do you pronounce Fienne?
Some suggestions I like, (and I like [name]Sanne[/name] too, wouldn’t change the spelling though):
Okay, those are all I can think of that are sort of Dutch.
Other Scandinavian-ish names:
some other Dutch names that are quite nice are Anique, [name]Saskia[/name], [name]Doutzen[/name], Lonneke, Ymre, [name]Lisanne[/name] and [name]Dewi[/name]. I like [name]Sanne[/name], but it could definitely be a pronunciation problem… but i think it is worth it if you love it! I love Dutch names (my dad was born there, his twin still lives there) and really want to use a Dutch name when I have kids someday… love your kids names too by the way!!
I love [name]Ophelia[/name], its Scandinavian, and another tradition spelling is [name]Ofelia[/name].
