Thanks, good to know your opinion
You are totally right :) i am definitely overcomplicating things! sorry for that :) i just trust people's opinions here
Is it familiar at all -Alina? I think the majority of people having heard of it... not sure though
Don't want to start a new thread...What you guys think about MARIANNA/MARIANNE? compared to the other two....
Thanks, I remeber you told me that your premier is Anastasia!
I mean that when you hear the name and don't see it written you might think it's Elaina, Elena so on.
i prefer Annie for Anastasia I think. Or Tasia.
I like Alina, I am just worried people will struggle with the pronunciation and so on. Not sure if it works well in the English speaking countries.
What do you think - which name would raise more eyebrows- Alexandra or Anastasia?
Thanks! Concerning Keira - to be honest I only know Keira Knightly. I am not sure what's the history/origin behind that name. Is it Celtic, Russian or smth else? I find conflicting info on that name in the internet.
Is Anastasia professional sounding you think?
Alexandra can be also called Allie, Alexa, Sandra, Sasha
Thanks! May I ask what's your fav nn for Anastasia. And what don't you like in Alexandra.
haha sorry I'll know for next time! Thanks for your input.
Oh ok I see. I thought Valeria/Valerie is quite an international name. Valeria probably sounds more latin.
Maybe Barbara is more suitable/common.
Hah I think one can think of a hurtful nickname/mnemonic almost to any name. Does your friend work in a us school? (Just curious).
I also like Alexandra , the only concern is that the name sounds too 'masculine', which means the individual will acquire similar traits during the lifetime...
Concerning Valeria.. To be honest never had the association with the medicine. My grandmother used to take it too though :)
Which name would make people feel less surprised do you think ? - Barbara or Valeria ? (US/UK area) I know you dislike Barbara :)
Dear ladies, thanks everyone for all really helpful and 'professional' replies!
I'd like to ask another question and would love your honest opinions!
Which of these three names do you prefer?
I am very much looking forward to your reples.
Thanks so much for that fascinating post!
Thank you so much, could never think someone would treat my post in such a kind and responsible way! Actually I've been also thinking about your response for a few days now! "Buried in the past", "burden of a name" - can't get these words out of mind!:)
to EVie - haha true, difficult to believe that the same person likes both names! Actually I've only started thinking of Barbara recently, never considered it before. Thanks for your response.
Didn't think of the 'Be' thing, thanks for pointing that out! True, Barbara is quite fashionable internationally.
