Honoring Ann & Kay

Although I am trying to honor Doro†hұ Ann & Pamꬴla Kaұ, I am sticking to trying to combine Ann & Kaұ into a single boy’s name that still retains the two names sounds (like Ann¡ka does on my girl’s list). The only name I’ve been able to come up with so far is Anak¡n. Yes, I’m aware of the Star Wars connection as my younger brother and cousins were all major fans growing up (and still are). Any name I choose will be used as a MN if I use it, especially Anak¡n.

Does anyone else have any ideas on how to honor Ann & Kaұ with one name?

Oh so sorry I didn’t realise that’s a boy name thread! :woman_facepalming:

I’m really liking [name_m]Canaan[/name_m]. I’m not sure about the religious ties, but it is the exact sound I wanted in a name. [name_u]Kyran[/name_u] and [name_m]Kane[/name_m] are nice as well.

@penelope_lynson No worries. I’ve done that before. I hadn’t seen [name_f]Annemieke[/name_f] before, so I did look at it. Thank you.

Kane or [name_m]Cain[/name_m] was the first one to come to mind. Another that doesn’t have those sounds directly, but comes close is [name_m]Keane[/name_m]. [name_m]Kian[/name_m] is another one that might fit the bill.

I was also going to say [name_m]Kian[/name_m].
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u]

What about just [name_u]Kaye[/name_u]? Since [name_u]Kay[/name_u] can be a boy’s name, and you’re borrowing the ‘e’ from [name_u]Anne[/name_u]

Hank? (because [name_u]Anne[/name_u] comes from [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] + K)

I like [name_m]Kane[/name_m] as a suggestion, too

Keirnan and [name_u]Keenan[/name_u] are great suggestions

How about turning the c of [name_m]Canaan[/name_m] into a K to reduce the biblical connection [name_m]Kanaan[/name_m]?

or [name_m]Kaden[/name_m]/Kaydan

Also [name_m]Anchor[/name_m]

Maybe kayden/kaden/etc spellings?

Kerrigan might work, too.

I like that idea. Plus it would still tie the K from [name_u]Kay[/name_u]. I like [name_m]Anchor[/name_m]… it ties in my love of the water. Thank you.

I hadn’t thought of [name_m]Kerrigan[/name_m]. I’ll have to look at it with my combos. Thank you.
