A previous post got me to thinking about my own name. I have been told one thing or another. I've had people argue with me about the pronunciation of my name!


For the sake of ease, I just go with what is probably a very American version. Ann-juh-leek. My grandmother pronounced it as Ahn/Awn-zhoo-leek. My French teacher also pronounced it about the same.

Ideas? Heh. :P

What do you think of the nickname Cobie (or Coby) for a girl?

I just started watching the show "How I Met Your Mother" , and one of the actresses goes by this name (Cobie Smulders). Her full name is Jacoba Fransisca Smulders.

I think it's a cute variant of her not-as-cute first name, Jacoba, but I don't think I would ever use it. If I was her, I would probably have everyone call me Fransisca. It sounds more feminine and a little more grown-up. Thoughts?

ETA: How does everyone feel about Jacoba? I like the pronounciation (yah-CO-bah), but I can't get over the fact it looks too much like the name it's derived from, Jacob, which has always been a very masculine name to me.

VOTE on my Name List

Most of the middle names have some sort of family connection. I'm due in May, so lots of time to decide.

Also...my favorite name is Emerson. I've wanted to name a girl that for ages (since long before my son came along -- it was our girl choice for him). But...a good friend of mine just had a baby girl and named her Emerson :(. They call her "Emme" and I would use the nickname "Emma." Should I just pick something else? Would you be mad if a friend of yours named her baby the same thing you just named yours?

Since doing the 'top 5 names for each letter' posts, I've found a lot of names that I'd never considered before that I now love!

So tell me what you think, combinations, anything!

LOTS of names! )

If you go on www.howmanyofme.com and type in your name you can find out how many people have your exact name.

I'm the only person with my full name!!!
