Re: Narrowing down - Annika or Linnea

  • I love both but Linnea is very underused and while so is Annika, there are other Anna names that are super popular so it doesn’t feel quite as fresh

  • I want to like Linnea, but I kind of keep thinking "Linea Nigra" (probably just because I'm pregnant lol). Voting Annika, and suggesting Althea if you need to add something new to the mix.

    This is what I immediately thought of too. I'm usually not a fan of changing spelling, but maybe Lynnea would help avoid that.

  • Although i agree that Linnea is refreshing and underused, it is a little “out there” for me. I actually have a student with this name, so I am familiar with it but I’m not sure how many people are. If that doesn’t bother you and you want something that is unique , then go for it if you really love it!

    Annika is think is still relatively uncommon, but feels more familiar to me.
