Help with my little girl's name!

Thanks to everyone one who has helped us shortened our original girl’s list to this!

Opinions? Our last name is [name]Banks[/name] and we would like her name to have [name]Ann[/name] somwhere in it!

[name]Anastasia[/name] nn. [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Annabelle[/name] nn. [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Dahlia[/name] nn. [name]Lia[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] nn. [name]Elea[/name]
[name]Esmerelda[/name] nn. [name]Ella[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] (prn. Ha-lay-nah) nn. [name]Lena[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name] nn. [name]Josey[/name]
[name]Katerina[/name] nn. [name]Kat[/name]
[name]Primrose[/name] nn. [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Rosalia[/name] nn. [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Talia[/name] nn. [name]Tally[/name]

Thanks in advance!

They are all great choices. Personally, speaking as an actual [name]Eleanor[/name] nn [name]Elea[/name], I can’t help but be giddy with glee! :smiley: For what it is worth, I have always loved my (full) name and nickname :slight_smile:

My favs after that would be:

[name]Annabelle[/name] nn [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Talia[/name] nn [name]Tally[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] nn [name]Lena[/name]
[name]Rosalia[/name] nn [name]Rose[/name]

But they really are all great choices!

[name]Anastasia[/name] [name]Banks[/name] I like it! An interesting pairing, love [name]Anastasia[/name]. I love Russian names and the nn of [name]Anne/name is so nice. I think [name]Anne[/name] is due for a comeback.

Interestingly (for me) the nn they use in [name]Russia[/name] is Nastier.

[name]Tahlia[/name] is my next favourite
[name]Helena[/name] next
[name]Katerina[/name] next but I much prefer [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Banks[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]. My daughter’s mn is [name]Kate[/name] so I am biased.

[name]Annabelle[/name] and [name]Eleanor[/name] have been done to death so I am getting tired of them although they are lovely names.

What a great list of names! :slight_smile:

[name]Anastasia[/name] nn. [name]Annie[/name]: I think this is absolutely beautiful, and I think it works wonderfully with your short last name!

[name]Annabelle[/name] nn. [name]Annie[/name]: I’m a huge [name]Annabelle[/name] fan (HUGE!), but I’m thinking that [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Banks[/name] is a bit B heavy. If the B’s don’t bother you, I think this is darling! :slight_smile:

[name]Aria[/name]: I think [name]Aria[/name] is beautiful, but I don’t personally think [name]Ann[/name] works in the middle, due to the back-to-back vowels ([name]Aria[/name]'s ending and [name]Ann[/name]'s beginning). Also, with [name]Banks[/name], I’d personally use a longer middle name to help the overall flow.

I think that [name]Aria[/name] [name]Vivianne[/name] or [name]Aria[/name] [name]Julianne[/name] are lovely. (I’m not sure if the [name]Ann[/name] in the middle can be derived from another name, or if you’d like [name]Ann[/name].)

[name]Dahlia[/name] nn. [name]Lia[/name]: I love [name]Dahlia[/name], but it’s the [name]Aria[/name] issue for me with [name]Ann[/name] in the middle. What about [name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Vivianne[/name] or another form of [name]Ann[/name] in the middle?

[name]Eleanor[/name] nn. [name]Elea[/name]: It’s the [name]Ann[/name] in the middle issue for me again, but I love [name]Eleanor[/name]!

[name]Esmerelda[/name] nn. [name]Ella[/name]: Ditto.

[name]Helena[/name] (prn. Ha-lay-nah) nn. [name]Lena[/name]: Ditto. I love these names, though!

[name]Josephine[/name] nn. [name]Josey[/name]: I love this, but not with [name]Ann[/name] in the middle.

[name]Katerina[/name] nn. [name]Kat[/name]: It may just be me, but [name]Katerina[/name] reminds me of Hurricane [name]Katrina[/name]. I do love the name, though!

[name]Primrose[/name] nn. [name]Rose[/name]: I love this name, too…

[name]Rosalia[/name] nn. [name]Rose[/name]: Ditto, but not with [name]Ann[/name] in the middle. I love [name]Rosalie[/name], too. :slight_smile:

[name]Talia[/name] nn. [name]Tally[/name]: Ditto.

I love every name on your list, but not all of them with [name]Ann[/name] in the middle, because of the back-to-back vowel issues and [name]Banks[/name] being a short (but great) last name.

My favorite from your list with [name]Banks[/name] is [name]Anastasia[/name], because the [name]Annie[/name] nickname comes from the first name, leaving you room for a longer middle name such as [name]Camille[/name] or [name]Violet[/name] (just examples).

(I love [name]Annie[/name] [name]Banks[/name], because it makes me think of Father of the [name]Bride[/name].) :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I also think they are all beautiful names, but agree with [name]Jill[/name] about the [name]Ann[/name] in the middle problem with some of them. I loved her idea of [name]Vivianne[/name]. My favourites:

[name]Anastasia[/name] nn. [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Katerina[/name] nn. [name]Kat[/name]
[name]Primrose[/name] nn. [name]Rose[/name] ([name]LOVE[/name] this new addition, love the nn!)
[name]Talia[/name] nn. [name]Tally[/name]

There is just something about [name]Katerina[/name] that is making it stand out for me - I think it’s how pretty the name is, but how cool the [name]Kat[/name] nn is. If you can pair it with [name]Vivianne[/name] (or similar) I would choose [name]Katerina[/name], but if you want [name]Ann[/name] then I would go for [name]Anastasia[/name], which I also love.

I love [name]Anastasia[/name]! It was my cousins name (long story) so it’s off limits for me but I think it’s a great name with a lot of possiblities for nn’s. [name]Annie[/name] is adorable!

My next favorites are -
[name]Eleanor[/name] nn [name]Elea[/name] - Why hasn’t this nn clicked with me before? [name]Love[/name] it!
[name]Esmerelda[/name] - [name]Ella[/name] is great and [name]Esme[/name] could be another option.
[name]Dahlia[/name] nn [name]Lia[/name]. I love [name]Lia[/name].

Are you planning on using [name]Ann[/name] as the middle or can the middle contain the name [name]Ann[/name]?


The mn. doesn’t have to be [name]Ann[/name] it could be a variation. Also it doesn’t even have to be [name]Ann[/name] it would just be nice.

I love [name]Anastasia[/name] but [name]Jake[/name] isn’t completly sold. He likes it but he adores [name]Katerina[/name].

Thanks for the help!!

[name]Anastasia[/name] or better yet… just [name]Ana[/name] [name]Banks[/name]. Sounds cool to me!

[name]Anastasia[/name] [name]Katya[/name] [name]Banks[/name]

I still prefer [name]Anastasia[/name]. [name]Rollo[/name]'s suggestion of [name]Katya[/name] or the sp. [name]Katia[/name] would make a great first name and perfect alternative to [name]Katerina[/name].

I love [name]Anastasia[/name].

We have agreed that we’re going to find mn. for both [name]Anastasia[/name] and [name]Katerina[/name] and wait until she’s born to decide which she looks like.

Any mn. Suggestions for [name]Anastasia[/name]? [name]Katerina[/name]?

Thanks in advance!

My darling daughter’s name is [name]Eleanor[/name] and we love it. [name]Josephine[/name] is on my list for baby # 2. Actually I like many of your names.

We have come to an agreement! We both adore [name]Katerina[/name] [name]Jane[/name] so if the baby is a girl her name will be [name]Katerina[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. If the baby is a boy his name will be [name]Ezekiel[/name] ???
Please comment on the topic Help find a mn for [name]Zeke[/name]


[name]Katerina[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is a great name! Would you nn [name]Katie[/name]? I love [name]Katie[/name] :slight_smile:
I like how [name]Jane[/name] balances out [name]Katerina[/name].

[name]Ezekiel[/name] is an all time favorite. I think I already posted there but I’ll go check.
