My cousin's daughter's name is Anna Jane. Jane after my cousin's middle name. She is absolutely beautiful.
Love it

This is one of my favourite names. I have decided when I have kids they will all have names from the Bible, and this is one of the very few female names I like from it. I think I'd choose a very unique middle name to go with such a common first name though.
My sister's name!

My name is ANna, and I hate it! When I went to school, there were a million other Anna's, some with the same last initial. someone would call 'Anna' and all 5 of us would look up.
My name is Anna

I never know what to think of my name. I think it is quite a pretty name, but it has its downsides. People think you're called Hannah, they write Hannah or Ana everywhere, when I started high school they got it completely wrong and put Annabel on all my files! that was disappointing. And it's quite a common name, and I`m not big on common names. I think my middle name runs quite smoothly with it however:- Catharine. Anna Catharine. You can't shorten Anna though, and the only nicknames I get are Banana and Spanner.

I am so proud to have this name. it may be common, but it flows so nicely! It's easy to spell (same thing forwards and backwards!)

Some cons: My old landlord used to call me ANA (pronounced AH-Nuh) and it was a little weird LOL. You do get a little picked on as in "Anna Banana", but nothing serious!

Would never want any other name!
