Hey there...I am a member of the Sep DDC. Dh and I are having issues with girl names and I wanted some opinions.

I like Avery (call her Ava)
He likes Annaliese (call her Anna). However we are having trouble deciding on spelling. If you like Analise better than Avery, which spelling do you prefer?

Also I really wanted to use my grandmother's name Emily as a middle name, but don't like it with Avery...does it sound horrible, or is it doable?

I definitely wouldn't use any spelling with "Anal" in it, I don't like it looks as pretty plus it could be grounds for teasing.... you just never know. For Annaliese I would use that spelling. I like both Annaliese and Avery, and I like both Anna & Ava.... but I think I might like Ava slightly better.

Avery is becoming way too unisex for me. Ava is very popular. So if you use Avery nn Ava she'd have two names, both common and one even unisex.

Annaliese (with any spelling) makes her stand out a lot more. The nn Anna isn't in the top 20 nowadays either. That way she gets two uncommon names and both of them make her obviously female.

So I would go with Annaliese. That's the spelling I like as well. Plus Avery just doesn't work with Emily IMO.

Using Emily with Anneliese is a little easier. Anneliese Emily doesn't sound bad, it just doesn't flow quite right for me. Of course you hardly ever use both names in real life, so that's not a huge problem.

If you like A names (as it appears) have you considered Amelia? Amelia (or the variant Amalia) is basically the same name as Emily. They have the same meaning, same root word, everything; they've just come to be spelled and pronounced differently in the present day. You could even use it as a first name if you liked. If you really want to use Avery I think Avery Amelia or Avery Amalia sound much better than Avery Emily. Anneliese Amelia and Annaliese Amalia sound about the same as Annaliese Emily IMO but you might prefer one over the other.

I really like Annaliese, and think that the spelling is pretty straightforward. I also think the nn Anna is very cute.

Avery is not my cup of tea, and I do like Ava, but as Acadia pointed out it is becoming very popular.

If it were my choice, I would go with Annaliese Emily, since I think it is classic yet off beat, and flows well.

I agree with the other girls. I like Ava better than Avery and I love Annalise. Avery Emily is awkward to me, so I like what Acadia suggested. You could also do Avery Emma as an alternative.

Annaliese....which def goes better with Emily. Good point about the "anal" in the name...I never saw it till it was brought up. Before that, I was going to go with Analiese
