I voted for your original pair - I just prefer the flow and I love [name]Juliana[/name] and [name]Isabelle[/name] with [name]Evangelina[/name]. To answer your questions:

  1. I prefer [name]Juliana[/name] to [name]Anneliese[/name]. Also, I like how the J contrasts slightly to the vowel names.
  2. I do love [name]Annabelle[/name], but agree you shouldn’t use it with [name]Isabelle[/name]. [name]How[/name] about:
    [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
    [name]Isabeau[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] / [name]Isidore[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]
    Then you could still have [name]Izzy[/name] as a nn.
  3. I think however you spell it, you are going to have to explain this pronunciation. Maybe it’s just me, but I would always assume it was ann-a
  4. I like [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leonard[/name].

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Claire[/name] ([name]Ana[/name]): I love [name]Anneliese[/name], but I love [name]Juliana[/name] more.
[name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] ([name]Izzy[/name]): I love the flow of [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] more, but I do love the name [name]Juliet[/name]!

Questions for you!

  1. [name]Anneliese[/name] better than [name]Juliana[/name]? I love both names, but with [name]Anneliese[/name], I like that our daughters would all have vowel names, and that we could use [name]Juliet[/name] as a middle name for [name]Isabelle[/name]. Using [name]Juliet[/name] as a middle name for [name]Isabelle[/name] seems too much if she has a twin sister [name]Juliana[/name]. :

I think they’re both beautiful names, but for some reason, I can better see [name]Juliana[/name] with [name]Isabelle[/name] and [name]Evangelina[/name].

  1. Or is [name]Anabelle[/name] better? I love, love, love [name]Anabelle[/name], but I also [name]ADORE[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name], and obviously wouldn’t have an [name]Anabelle[/name] and an [name]Isabelle[/name]. So we’d need another name. :slight_smile:

I love [name]Annabelle[/name], but I pronounce [name]Anabelle[/name] differently (on-a-belle), which sounds like someone is “on a bell.” I’m not sure if pronunciation issues would arise, but it may be an issue.

Have you thought about:

[name]Juliette[/name]/[name]Juliet[/name] as a first name? I think it’s gorgeous with [name]Evangelina[/name] (so pretty) and [name]Isabelle[/name].

More -ana names:

  1. I love the spelling of [name]Anneliese[/name] as I’ve written it, but want the pronounciation to be ([name]Ah[/name]-na, not [name]Ann[/name]-a). [name]Do[/name] you think that works, or should I consider an alternative spelling, like [name]Analise[/name]?

I always mispronounce [name]Anneliese[/name] with an “[name]Ann[/name]” sound (hanging my head in shame), not an “ahn” sound, and I’m guessing I’m not alone. Ahn is the correct pronunciation, of course ([name]AH[/name]-nuh-[name]LEE[/name]-zuh). I know of an [name]Anneliese[/name] who pronounces her name [name]Ann[/name]-uh-leece, which may be why I mispronounce it. (I’m working on it, though.) :slight_smile:

Sadly, when I see [name]Analise[/name], I see the word “anal.” :frowning: Because of this, I’d personally stick with two Ns.

  1. Thoughts on the flow of [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leonard[/name].

I think [name]Isabelle[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] are gorgeous, but I think a shorter middle would sound great, along lines of [name]Juliana[/name] [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Claire[/name]. (What about [name]Juliette[/name]/[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Claire[/name]?)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

If I were you, I’d go with [name]Juliana[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] and [name]Isabella[/name] [name]Claire[/name]. They match well and [name]Mireille[/name] LOOKS better with [name]Juliana[/name] in my personal opinion.

anneliese claire & isabelle mireille

Tough choice! I absolutely love how [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leonard[/name] flows, but I think it”s too much with [name]Juliana[/name]. And I definitely prefer [name]Juliana[/name] to [name]Anneliese[/name], because it”s rarer (at least in my experience) and easier to spell since there are so many versions of [name]Anneliese[/name] out there. Therefore, I would stick with your original choices. Good luck!

[name]Edit[/name]: Also, you’ll want to make sure that all three of your daughter’s names sound good together. In my opinion, [name]Evangelina[/name] and [name]Anneliese[/name] sound harsh together. It is much easier to say all three names with [name]Juliana[/name] in the mix instead.

[name]Just[/name] some more to think about…

[name]Evangelina[/name] [name]Kate[/name] and

[name]Analiese[/name] (I prefer [name]Anneliese[/name], but pronunciation errors are likely)
[name]Anais[/name] (pronounced “uh-nay-iss”)

[name]Isadora[/name] (I think this is really cool!)
[name]Isolde[/name] (I also like this - very interesting!)

So, if you want [name]Evangelina[/name] and her sisters all to have vowel names, your choices for [name]Ana[/name] are: [name]Anastasia[/name], [name]Analiese[/name], [name]Anais[/name], [name]Anaya[/name], [name]Emiliana[/name], [name]Adriana[/name], [name]Ariana[/name], and [name]Eliana[/name]. You likely don’t want a name starting with another E, since [name]Evie[/name]'s does. So, my favorites with [name]Evangelina[/name] are [name]Analiese[/name], [name]Ariana[/name], and [name]Anais[/name], but I really do like [name]Emiliana[/name] with [name]Evie[/name]! I also love [name]Isolde[/name] and [name]Isadora[/name] because they are more unique than [name]Isabella[/name], and [name]Evangelina[/name] is a fairly uncommon name.

I think that I saw that your last name was [name]Leonard[/name], and I personally don’t like the flow of [name]Analiese[/name] [name]Leonard[/name] - to heavy on the L. So, I’d do [name]Ariana[/name] or [name]Anais[/name], but probably [name]Ariana[/name]. [name]Ariana[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leonard[/name] is beautiful, and you can use [name]Ana[/name] or [name]Ari[/name] as nicknames. Also, [name]Ariana[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Leonard[/name] is very nice! You could do [name]Isolde[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leonard[/name], or [name]Isolde[/name] [name]Annabella[/name], [name]Isolde[/name] [name]Arabella[/name], or [name]Isolde[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Leonard[/name], too!

You probably didn’t want more names, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents…

I think that [name]Juliana[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] & [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Claire[/name] go beautifully with
[name]Evangelina[/name] [name]Kate[/name].

I agree that [name]Evangelina[/name] and [name]Annelise[/name] sound a little harsh in succession, and I’m personally opposed to [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] because of the double “L” in succession. They are all beautiful names and fit together one way or another depending on how it sounds to YOUR ear, which is what matters :slight_smile:
