    I love the first three! Clara, Lina, Lena, Mila, Mena, and Elsie all seem to fit your style as well.

  • Another question I forgot to ask: thoughts on alliterative sibling names?  We have an E boy already and like another E boy name, so if we have a boy after this and we go with Emma.... we will have three Es.  I find that somewhat obnoxious but DH thinks it doesn't matter. 

  • Annika is beautiful but I much prefer it spelled Anika. It's my daughter's name and that's how we spell it :)

    Emma is cute, but way too popular. I don't care for the other three.

  • Thanks @myannie can I ask you how you pronounce it and whether other people tend to mispronounce it?

  • How is Stina supposed to be pronounced? Like the i in Christina? Or like the i in Carolina? I think this could cause confusion.
  • @mayoduck Like Kristina. It is a shortened version. I suppose we might go with Kristina and just call her Stina.

  • We pronounce it AHN-i-ka. Occasionally someone will pronounce it ANN-i-ka, which is mildly annoying but everyone of importance to us (family, teachers, friends, ect...) always pronounce it correctly.

  • Stina sounds very odd to me and I really don't like it at all.  Annika and Linnea are refreshing as they are less common.  Emma and Claire are great, but very conventional.  I like all but Stina.

  • Linnea is my favorite- pretty and unexpected. I've never heard of Stina before but it's nms.

  • Linnea is my favorite by far.

        If you want most people to know that you named her AHN-I-ka then you should use Anika as the spelling. Ana=Ahna  Anna=Ann(a)…...2 N's say Ann.
    I really like Anika and also Annika.

  • Love Claire, like Emma. Stina is odd to me. Linnea and Annika are okay. I wouldn’t side eye them like I would Stina but I wouldn’t pick them.

  • Stina should be a nn only, not a stand alone name. All the other options are very nice. I like Linnea best because it is under used.
