  • i'm naming my daughter after my dads side of the family, and my mom's side. my dad's middle name is bennett, he's a junior. (my brother's middle name is bennett as well.) my mom's middle name is lee... her dad's first name was lee. both my mom and my dad's fathers have died. my daughter will be "bentlee" i couldn't decide what spelling i was going to use (bentleigh, bentley, etc) but when my mom saw, she said, "if you're going to name her after someone, if should be as close to the spelling as possible."

    all of that to say, maybe you should use one of the spelling with actual ANNA in it.

  • i used my nans name for my daughters as a tribute but i asked my moms and grandads permission if they would mind i could use it for that purpose and not hurt their feelings and they were more than happy for me to so i tweeked it so it was more modern and i used my moms middle name too :)

    but i do like Annalynn and Leona

  • I like Annalynn Marie. I think it should have "anna" in it, but be a little different by adding the lynn on the end to give her a bit of difference.
