Hey, picking my dad up from the pub tonight with DF we got onto the topic of baby names.

Now my dads mum was called Anneliese, she passed when I was preggy with DS & it meant alot to him when we decided to use it as a MN. We had planned the MN's were Anneliese Delaney & our current top picks for FN's were; Piper, Kiara, Shalimar & I was pushing for Kendra.

But my dad tonight started pushing for the name Anneliese to be used as a FN.
Im the only one in my family that was close to my nan so my dad knows Id be the only one to even consider using it as a FN.
I told him Id think about it to keep him happy.

But when we dropped him of DF turnt around & said he loved the idea of using it as a FN.
I told him Im honestly not sure if I want to be he thinks I should & that its a good name.



I really dont know though, I dont dislike the name but its not a name I love which is why its in the MN spot, I also prefer family names in the MN spot. I wouldnt be happy using the name Ann as a NN as thats what my nan went by.

Should I let my self be pressured into it, I know it would upset my dad if I didnt use it & DF likes the name but I just dont know if I can use it & be happy that Ive given my child that name

Anneliese is a GORGEOUS name. But if you don't like it, then don't use it. You have to be happy with your baby's name since you will be calling her that for a long time.

I think that if you like it as a middle name, thats where it should be. Dont let other people, whoever they are, make you feel like you have to do what they want just to keep em happy! Its your baby, youre the one who is responsible for their name, not the grandparents. You are the one who will have to say it thousands and thousands of times! Be strong, if thats where you want the name placed, thats where it should go!

Its very pretty but find something that you really truly love for the first name. She will hear whatever you pick everyday for the rest of her life.

I like Anneliese(love this spelling) Do you say it ann-uh-lees or ann-uh-lees-uh?? I like both!

Lisa, Leeza would be cute alt. NN ideas.

But you shouldn't use it upfront if you don't love it. You will probably regret it later. Just be honest with your dad and fiance and say I like Anneliese but not as a FN.

Oh and I think Piper Anneliese would be awesome! It gets my vote!

Could you used it as a FN and call her Eliese or Elie?

Don't let family pressure you into using a name you don't care for...this is one of your first parenting decisions, and you don't want anyone to get the idea that you're a pushover when it comes to parenting.

I agree ..you can always give her a nn to call her by from Anneliese. It depends on how you'd pro. it. I love Anna as a nn for it!

i had that issue (not the same circumstances) with my son. dh decided we should use his FN and his fathers FN for our son. but neither of us really liked that name at the time. but i agreed. so our sons name is Douglas Wyatt, but we call him Wyatt. so maybe you could use it as a FN and go by her MN. just an idea.

p.s.....i LOVE Douglas now and call him Douglas quite often.

I don't think you should let your family pressure you into picking a certain name. It's your baby, and you get to do things YOUR way. It *is* a pretty name, which I'm sure you know, but if you don't like it in the first slot, don't use it. Just be honest with your dad.. he might be disappointed but I bet he'll get over it. It still honors her in the middle name slot.

It's your baby, YOU name her what you want. It's a pretty name, but if you like it as a middle name, then that's where it goes! Very nice name choices BTW!

I must say I LOVE it.. but if you aren't 100% about it I wouldn't use it as a FN... Don't agree to anything just yet, just take your time and see if it grows on you or maybe a totally different name will become the frontrunner.. Good luck.
