I like both, but to me they have totally different feelings. Anne is classic and elegant and may lend to the nickname Annie, so make sure you're ok with that. Anya feels more European and artsy.

Anne, by far.

And, I agree with PP:
Anne - classic, elegant, and sweet
Anya - European and artsy

I'm just a lurker, but I wanted to say something here because I know two people with those names. Anne, I have known all my life so I love this name. This girl is very fun, EXTREMELY smart, hilarious, and very sweet. Anya is a woman I just met. She's very loud (not in a bad way), outgoing, and flirty. Just wanted to throw that out there to see if it helped you at all. I personally like Anne better, but that could be because my Anne is a good family friend.

I definitely like Anya better. I think it's much more pretty and interesting. I feel just bleh about Anne. I also knew a woman Anne growing up and she was an irritating, low class person, so that might have something to do with it too.

I love the nickname Annie so that's really not a problem.

Aine is my Dad's mom's name (pronounced Anya) but she changed it to Anne (basically under duress, long story) anyways I like both. I'm still kind of torn between the two. Hm.

I prefer Anya. If it were between Anya and Anna, I would have picked Anna.
