Anna has been universally embraced by parents around the world. Russia, Sweden, Norway and Italy are just a few of the countries where Anna is beloved. It’s more distinctive than Ann or Anne and more formal than the nickname Annie. It also blends and pairs easily with other names. Without the letter H, Anna looks like her more popular sister Hannah. Anna has been the name of empresses and queens, as well as actresses such as Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick and True Blood actress Anna Paquin. To be even more different, some parents are opting for the Russian nickname Anya.
