I heard that name again today and had an "ah-ha" moment. What do you think?
Other names I like include Katherine, Elise and Natasha, William/Liam, Samuel and Nathan.

I think it's uncommon enough, but I've noticed it's rising in popularity.

I grew up with a lot of friends named Anya because in Russia (where I am from), it's the standard nickname for the name Anna, so every Anna is an Anya.. so to me, it's a nickname not a full-name, but only based on my experiences hearing it, etc.

I have a Anja. I LOVE it. I chose it on a "ah ha" moment too. We get comments about how beautiful it is ALL the time.

I also like Natasha. It has the same feel as Anya to me.

I LOVE Anya. I went to school with a girl named Anya and *everyone* always told her what a beautiful name it was. I agree... I think it's gorgeous. I also love Anja.

Our second daughter will have the middle name Aine (which is Irish, but pronounced just like Anya). It's after my mom, who's middle name is Ann.

I also like the name Elise from your list. In fact, I like the flow of Anya Elise.

I was going to say this... I prefer Aine
Quote:
Ancient Irish name from the noun aine that means "splendor, radiance, brilliance." Aine is connected with fruitfulness and prosperity. The queen of the Munster fairies was called Aine as was one of the wives of Fionn Mac Cool (read the legend). Aine appears in folktales as "the best-hearted woman who ever lived – lucky in love and in money."
