I've noticed it too! Annalyn and Emmalyn here - a military base though so people are not from a specific region. I find them hard to pronounce somehow.

Oh no! Elsa was one of our front runners for girl #3. I haven't seen the movie yet so didn't know that was the name, but judging by the buzz the movie is creating I bet it will be a primary association to a lot of people. For years the only Elsa I knew was a 40s-50s co-worker, although I now have distant friends with a 6 year old and another born late last year.

Very much like it. We have a 2 year old friend nn Delia and though I found it a little unexpected the first time I heard it, I now think it is very charming. Cute on a little girl and I think it will age well.

Met a sibset today that would fit right in: Cougar (b), Armor (b), and Saber (g). I found the aggression a little offputting myself, but to each his own.

We don't often. We live in kind of a pocket on a military base in a non-English speaking county, but I have only come across one on the playground (age 8ish) and know a 4 year old whose real name is Annabelle. We must have similar taste, Jane is our mn if we have a third girl!

We have a baby Anna Kate. While I don't love the nn Annie, our 3 year old insists upon calling the baby that. I guess that it is an intuitive nickname if a preschooler picked up on it!

Lana also gives you the sound 'Layna' - there are several in my family stretching over multiple generations and I've always thought it simple and lovely. Also like the recommendation of Magdelena and Helena for you to get the nick-name Lainey. I once new a Lainey whose real name was Laine, struck me as odd 10 years ago but today I think it would be right on trend for a girl. Nora is very lovely and a great name despite being popular.
