My fiance said last night that baby's name is Annabella..
I love it and we both agree on it, but for some reason I still can't make it stick.
I think I'm just going to be calling her Bella alot.
We also agreed that her middle name would be Joy, named after his mum.. but now he's saying he wants two middle names?



I'm really liking Bella-Joy as a first name.. thoughts?
So her name would be Bella-Joy Ann Deane.
Fiance says its nice, but he likes Annabella more.



Does anyone have any ideas or helpful comments?

just remember the baby is coming out of you so you have the final decision on what her name will be..but compromise is always nice. i think with annabella as a first name 2 middle names would make it too long

I think Annabella is too much. I love Annabelle, though.

Bella is overdone.
Annabella is so pretty and she has Annabella or Anna to choose from as an adult if she doesn't like Bella. If you name her just Bella she's stuck with a nick name for ever.
Annabella Joy is gorgeous.

I don't like Hyphenated names. Especially, First names. I don't like Joy either, but if you had to, Bella Joy Lastname. is ok.
