I would like some suggestions for a nice second name to follow [name]Anna[/name].I think something simple and strong would work best.I love [name]Anna[/name] on its own ,but with my surname [name]Deane[/name] as my bro. pointed out the name could sound like a brand of analgesic tablet.I could only think of [name]Anna[/name] [name]Jane[/name] or [name]Anna[/name] [name]Rose[/name] ,which sounds best,any other short plain names?

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Frances[/name] [name]Deane[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name] [name]Deane[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Deane[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Roselyn[/name] [name]Deane[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Deane[/name]

So are you looking for a compound first name or a middle name? I think you’re looking for a compound first name…if not, you can ignore this :slight_smile:

These names (for the most part) can be written as one name or two depending on your preference


I am looking for a compond first name I guess, however I don’t want a name which is too long or a tongue twister.thanks for some interesting suggestions.

I like your idea of [name]Anna[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. :slight_smile:

That’s my sister’s name (though she only went by her fn), and she always LOVED it! It also comes with the cute nickname of AJ.

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Kate[/name]

With [name]Deane[/name], I’d pick a second name with at least two syllables to prevent the combo (first, midddle, last) from sounding too blunt.

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Violet[/name]

Short names:

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Claire[/name] (although I hear [name]Anne[/name] Eclair when I say it out loud…)
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Grace[/name] (popular…)
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Annalynn(e) or Aniston (Annastyn)

Thanks to all opinions,especially to smp123 , I was glad to here there was someone out there with the name [name]ANNA[/name] [name]JANE[/name] ,THE THING IS i [name]LOVE[/name] the two names individually but wonder would my daughter remain just [name]Anna[/name] or [name]Jane[/name] as your sister did.Any advice?
I also loved [name]Anna[/name] [name]Kate[/name] as posted by [name]Lucy[/name].Probably linked to the fact that I love [name]Annika[/name] as a name but since I live in [name]Ireland[/name] I’m not sure if people would always ask are you Swedish,? Anistyn is an unusual name .What does it mean,or relate to?

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Jessamyn[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Anna[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] - one of my faves!
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Paloma[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Violet[/name]

[name]Jill[/name], I love [name]Anna[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]! I have thought of it before.

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] is one of my personal favorites too! I also know a wonderful woman named [name]Anna[/name] [name]Celine[/name] (and she goes by [name]Anna[/name] [name]Celine[/name]) and I always thought that was a beautiful and unexpected combination as well. In any case, [name]Anna[/name] is a beautiful name on its own and compounded :slight_smile: best of luck!

I never would have thought of putting [name]Celine[/name] with [name]Anna[/name] but it really works.Thanks Caitalinna, also [name]Selene[/name] is a name I rather like or maybe [name]Selena[/name] with my surname.What is the pronounciation of [name]Selene[/name] is it the same as [name]Celine[/name].I can’t use [name]Celine[/name] because [name]Celine[/name] [name]Deane[/name] dosen’t sound great and its very close to [name]Celine[/name] [name]Dion[/name].I think I must be drawn to names that are associated to the moon and cosmos since the first name I loved was [name]Phoebe[/name] but my husband isn’t keen .Any other astronomical/celestial ideas to suit my surname [name]Deane[/name].

About “celestial” names–I went and found the Nameberry list “Space Names” and here are some I think would go well with your last name!


To get the full list, you can search any one of these names, scroll down to “Related Names”, and click on the list called “Space Names”. Aside from these, I love [name]Anna[/name] [name]Selene[/name] and [name]Anna[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (AJ). Good luck! :slight_smile:

oh my god! i’m sorry i should of noted that your last name was [name]Deane[/name]- oops!
I like [name]Anna[/name] [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Deane[/name] (sometimes I dont like a double A sound, but I really think i do in this case). Other options for astrological-ish:
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] [name]Deane[/name] (as you can tell I am not nearly as good at this as [name]Jill[/name]!)

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Deane[/name] (still love love love this)…

If you like French names (like [name]Celine[/name]) [name]Marielle[/name], [name]Sophia[/name], [name]Colette[/name], [name]Lisette[/name], [name]Monet[/name] are all nice options with [name]Anna[/name] I think.

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Bronte[/name] is also really cool… I hope this helps!

You could hyphenate the two names you love and name her [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Jane[/name] so she would be known by both:)

Thanks again caitalinna and [name]Jill[/name] and unicorngal,[name]Rory[/name] is a family name so [name]Aurora[/name] is a possibility.I liked the flow of anna caroline but [name]Caroline[/name] wouldn’t be my style of name,pity.WDYTO [name]Anna[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] (here it is pronounced leen).I’ve got to admit there is something about the straightforwardness of [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Jane[/name] or even [name]Emma[/name]-[name]Jane[/name] [name]Deane[/name] which is appealing .Which combo is your favourite?

I think its just my personal preferences, but I love [name]Anna[/name] [name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Anna[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]! [name]Lovely[/name] choices :slight_smile: let us know what you choose!!
