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.

What are you crushing on (inspired by nameberry post)

Lately I have been loving Iris & Aspen. Unfortunately hubby has vetoed them both but I kind of like them;

Juno & Iris- Iris Margot

Juno & Aspen- Aspen Margot

 

I think I like the soft s sounds of these two with Juno. Also fond of Astrid but it has the hard d ending which doesn’t sound as pretty.

Suggest me some Sister names to my Junebug- she is Juno Francesca, middle name will be Margot.
