    I love Anya, its simple and pretty and I think names like zoe and amiee are used too much (I know at least 10 amy’s in various forms of spelling) and I think Lillian would be a lovely middle name to go with it :)

    I vote for Annika Lillian. They are all good choices but if you go with Amiee, I’d spell it either Amy or Aimee as those spellings are a lot more common and the Amiee looks like a typo.

    I should add, I think Anya is pretty too but I think it lends itself too easily to “on ya” jokes (don’t get any on ya!, etc.) so that would get old. My dad and brother are both huge punsters so a name’s pun potential always jumps right out at me.

    I love Zoe! Annika, as well. I think Zoe Annika would be spunky and feminine–a great combo! Or even Annika Zoe. I think the nn Annie’s adorable, but I like Zoe Annika as a combo more. I love Lillian as a MN option, as well, and I think Zoe Lillian is just as lovely! Maybe a bit more on the sweet and timeless vibes, rather than the spunky and sporty ones. I think either combo would be a winner, though! I also like Lillian Zoe nn Lily, but I’m just a huge Lily fan. :)

    I like Annika and Zoe best, and particularly like Annika with a two-syllable last name. If Annika were the first name, I think I’d keep the middle name to two syllables, like Annika Zoe, as Ash suggested. Annika Lilly would work well too.

    I like Zoey or Anya best! Though Lily/Lillian and Annika are great first names too. The spelling Amiee is confusing to me, I’d go with Aimee… But Zoey’d be my top choice! I like Zoey Lillian.

    we are leaning towards the Zoe Annika combo.
    DH prefers Zoe Annika. He is worried that Annika will be harder to pronounce and spell.
    I prefer Annika Zoe….although I do like Zoe Annika too. Zoe has a good kick to it, but it is gaining popularity!?

    Anya Lillian is really nice too! Although I put Anya in a similar category as Mia, Maya, Arya, Aria, Amari, Amaya. They seem like made up names to me IMO. They sound trendy for now.

    I like Annika Zoe. Zoe is a beautiful name but I know 3 child/baby Zoe/Zoi/Zoey’s. When my girls’ were born, I named one Izabelle, even though the name was gaining in popularity. Every year that she has been in school, she has had another Izabelle/Isabel/Isabella in her class and she hates it. Her twin has a different, uncommon name and she always wishes her name was different, too. Go figure :)

    Annika & Zoey would be my top 2 pics from those choices! I am surprised so many people seem to prefer Zoe over Zoey. To me, Zoe looks incomplete, as if it should be pronounced like Doe.
    Annika is beautiful-I like anything with an Annie nickname! I think it is spelled and pronounced pretty easily, easier than Zoe,Zoey, Anya or Amiee actually.

    I like Zoe Annika! I would like Annika Zoe better but they are both nice. And yes, I definitely prefer the Zoe spelling to Zoey (which reminds me of “zooey”).
