Is there a name you just can't let go...?

I've felt it and I'm not even sure I totally love the name! I've just had it in my head for so long that I'd name my first daughter AnnaLane (after my grandmother Anna Lane). Except I hate the way it sounds when I say it out loud. I get stuck verbally somewhere in the middle of the name and it garbles weirdly.
We've thought about AnnaBella, and honoring her by at least having the Anna in there, but something in me always goes back to AnnaLane.
I always feel like people say "Anne Elaine". And I HATE the name Elaine for very strong personal reasons. I cannot imagine correcting people if they said "OH Anne Elaine?"
Say it out loud and see if you don't also hear "Ann Elaine"
