Hyphenated Names – Anna

´

Hyphenated names are quite popular in Austria. But most people don´t use their whole name in real live.   I know for example girls called Anna-Maria and Lisa-Marie, who only go by Anna and Lisa. Hyphenated names are mostly given to girls, but some parents choose them also for boys. I am acquainted with siblings called Lisa-Marie and Tim-Luca.

´

But there are also some parents, who use hyphenated names to combine popular  names like Anna and Lea with more unusual choices.  I have searched out some of these combinations on the Austrian first name statistics.

´

I will start today with Anna and some interesting combinations.

Anna-Alice

Anna-Amalia

Anna-Aurora

  1. How interesting. What I find with Anna is that it tends to be absorbed into a heck load of names, like with Marianna and Annabel. In England and Wales the 5 most popular anna-hyphen-something names were Anna-Maria, Anna-Mae, Anna-Rose, Anna-Leigh, Anna-Louise and Anna-Mai (although I’m not 100 percent sure). I would say the Austrian combinations you’ve mention are much more adventurous. I particularly like Anna-Beatrice, Anna-Loretta and Anna-Henriette. I do find Anna and Amalia to be too similar in sound to be really good together.
