A names are amazing

At my work six children are girls named A…

 which is just under a quarter of our group, that got me thinking about A names.

Also my name is Anna and I think that its pretty awesome! 🙂

So I did some digging 🙂

**********************

Astrid

My favourite A girls name :). In Norse it means divine strength/ divinely beautiful.

*****

Annora

Less heard of than Anna and Annabelle with a more old fashioned feel. In Latin it means Honor.

*****

Alexa

A more fresh and spunky feel than Alexandra a variant meaning “defending men.”

*****

Aspen

With a nature feel for those of us looking to connect our child to the earth. It is both a tree in the Poplar family and a ski resort in Colorado.

*****

Alanis

Probably most famous for the singer, it is the feminine form of Alan meaning cheerful 🙂

*****

Araminta

With many cute nickname options including Minty. This name is of Greek origin and means “defender.”

*****

Aveline

This name is beautiful, with a similar feel to Madelyn and Evelyn it would not be out of place. Of French roots a cognate of Hazel.

*****

Anouk

Another Ann name this one from France. Often mispronounced but very pretty. Meaning “grace”.

*****

Arielle

A pretty elle name beginning with A :).  The French feminine form of Ariel.
