[name]Hi[/name] berries! i am in desperate need of your help here. We are due next month ([name]October[/name]) and were pretty dead set on [name]Annabel[/name] however, i went and had a few hats monogrammed for our little girl and when i recieved them the name was spelt “[name]Anabel[/name]” which is no big deal to have corrected if i want to. The thing is, i kind of liked the way it looked there on the hats and it has me reconsidering the spelling. So here is what i want to know from you, since you guys seem to really know your stuff with names and origins and whatnot, is [name]Anabel[/name] an actual spelling? or is it made up, bc the last thing i want is a made up spelling lol. Also, is this the spanish spelling of the name? i did read somewhere that it was but, i dont know how reliable it was and that is actually a good thing bc my husbands family is originally from spain. [name]Do[/name] you think it will still be pronounced correctly as [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Bell[/name]? Finally, which spelling do you prefer [name]Anabel[/name] OR [name]Annabel[/name] which do you think looks better, has a better chance of not being mispelled or mispronounced? By the way the [name]Annabelle[/name] spelling is not even an option so please dont say you prefer that spelling, its just too long and overdone to us.
Please help me, i was so happy to have the naming of this baby set and out of the way, and now i am questioning the spelling! plus, if we stick with our original spelling [name]Annabel[/name] (which i think i prefer) i have to get these hats fixed ASAP! LOL… thank you
