Names that could form Annie as a NN

[name]Hi[/name]. While we are still deciding on our newest daughters name, my husband really like the name [name]Annie[/name] but we wouldnt want to use it alone. So, my question, what names does/can [name]Annie[/name] come from???

Also, please give your advice on “babies a week old…and still no name…”

Ok so some of these are more obvious than others but I think you can legitimately get [name]Annie[/name] from these names-

[name]Dylan[/name]/ [name]Dylann[/name]

I hope this helps!

^I think most are in that list.

[name]Rhian[/name] ([name]Ree[/name]-ann)

i’ve seen anniston too.

if you want to stretch it…ainsley? i think it means anne’s field/meadow or something like that?

[name]Ansley[/name], instead of ainsley…has more of the “anne” beginning.

There is also [name]Annunziata[/name] and [name]Andromeda[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are quite an acquired taste, but I like them.

[name]Janine[/name] and [name]Jeanette[/name] as well ^^
And I don’t think [name]Annora[/name] has been mentioned

[name]Annabelle[/name]/[name]Annabel[/name], [name]Anneliese[/name]/[name]Annelise[/name], [name]Anna[/name], [name]Annika[/name], [name]Anne[/name], [name]Susannah[/name], and [name]Miranda[/name] are my favorite source of [name]Annie[/name], which I absolutely love! :slight_smile:

Good luck!

I just saw that you have an older daughter named [name]Eliza[/name] (one of my favorites!) :-), and I can best see these “[name]Annie[/name]” names with [name]Eliza[/name]:

[name]Annabelle[/name]/[name]Annabel[/name] (has [name]Eliza[/name]'s “[name]El[/name],” though)
[name]Susannah[/name] (a bit z heavy with [name]Eliza[/name], though)

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

well my aunt’s name is [name]Mary[/name] [name]Ann[/name] (I think that’s how she spells it haha) but the only people who call her that is her family(my aunt by marriage), every one else has always called her [name]Annie[/name]. My name is [name]Marianne[/name] (no, I wasn’t named after her and I’m not middle-aged-- people always act like that name is too old for a 20-something year old) and my dad calls me Mariannie. Good luck :slight_smile:

My cousin [name]Antoinette[/name] goes by [name]Annie[/name] amongst her friends, although not in the family as this was already my given nn for [name]Anne[/name]. Wish she was first, then maybe I would have been given a slightly more inspiring name! My vote is definitely for the longer ‘annie’ root names.

Well, my name is [name]Ann[/name] and I go by [name]Annie[/name]. I’m pretty sure people will completely get [name]Annie[/name] as a nickname of [name]Ann[/name].

There was another girl in my class who went by [name]Annie[/name], but her name is [name]Anstice[/name]. She got made fun of a lot, because people didn’t get how [name]Annie[/name] could possible be a nickname for that.

I would personally suggest sticking to [name]Ann/name, mostly because of my friend [name]Annie[/name]'s experience with people not getting her nickname.

[name]Anna[/name], my name I vote for that :slight_smile:

i am really liking [name]Anneli[/name]!

Most of the ones I was thinking of have been posted, but here are a few more. Some might not have [name]Annie[/name] as an obvious nn, but I think it could work for any name that has the “ann” sound in it.


[name]Anna[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]

to the extent not already included above, anything else ending in -ana or -anna, such as


oh, also
