Anagram Names
, ,

Hi Jennifer,

For as long as I remember, I planned on giving all my children names which are anagrams of my name, Adina. I named our first baby boy Aidan.

I’m expecting my second baby in January, so I don’t know the sex yet. If we have another boy, I want to name him Daian, which I thought would be pronounced Day-an. Do think this name can be pronounced differently and cause problems for a child growing up? Or do you think that it would be ok?

I have lots of girl names: Nadia, Dania, Diana, and Daina (which I guess could be unisex).

What do you think?

Thanks!
Ms. Anagram

Dear Ms. Anagram,

What an interesting concept! And you have a great name to anagram, so kudos! The name Daian could also be pronounced like “DY-in” but once you correct people (or he does) I don’t see it being an issue.

As for your girls’ names, they are all easy to pronounce and easy to spell–great choices, in my book!

Sincerely,
Jennifer
