"One of my 9 sisters named me Ann (Marie) in 1954 and I love it. My husband of 40+ years is Dan, so that is fun too. Name fits the smart, focused person I am!" Jul. 6, 2021:
"My name is Ann and I think it's a very unique name. Names like Annie and Annabella feels too cute and soft, but in my opinion, Ann just sounds right." Jun. 17, 2021:
"This is my middle name as well as my mum's. I love it." Jan. 19, 2016:
"My son's wife's name is Ann. Before I met her I thought this is a bit strange name, like not complete ANne, without this distinguished aura which has Anne or even Anna. But now I don't agree with it. Ann is a pretty and feminine name, classic and short, I like such names the most. All my children have classic, short names, including Ann's husband. So I think Ann and her name really fits our family and the name Ann fits our Ann." Nov. 7, 2015:
"I'm a Ruth Ann. No name goes better with Ruth than Ann!!!" Feb. 6, 2011:
"My name is Ann. I was given this name when it was at its peak! (1960) It is rare now for a girl to be Ann versus Annie. It feels very classy to be Ann. My mother loved it. She fell in love with the girl in the Bobby Daren song "Artificial Flowers" which was #1 when I was born. There were 7 Anns in my grade school and about 5 Ann-Maries. Needless to say, when the nun said "Ann" many girls jumped!" Aug. 16, 2010:
"My name is Ann-Marie as one name as opposed to two but people usually call me Ann, Annie. I've gotten Anna Banana from a friend and AnnaMaria. All in all I think Ann is quite a pretty name. It's sophisticated and regal as opposed to plain." Jul. 3, 2009:
"My middle name is Ann. I love it, it's a classic name." Nov. 1, 2008:

Ann MO." Jan. 1, 2008:
"My mom's name is Ann...It's a beautiful name but it gets difficult when the cousins are over. They usually just tag on an "ie" and call her Auntie Ann vs. Aunt Ann.
Luff her name though." Nov. 25, 2006:
"My name is Ann and I love it. It's very, very rare now to meet anyone with the name as their first name. Simple and beautiful." Sep. 1, 2006:

"terrible. 0/10 would not recommend. causes terrible indigestion." May. 13, 2021:
"Even as a little kid I hated being called Ann. I thought it was a harsh, stingy, mean, distant name. After I left home it morphed into Annie which is more affectionate, and I like it better, but I feel more like a Mimi or an Yvette." Dec. 3, 2018:
"My first name is Ann. Middle is Marie. I ask my mom all the time why that name. Couldn't she think of anything else? But she loves it. I think it is boring and plain. All the other Anns I have met have been 30+ years older then me. I really don't like the name." Dec. 17, 2009:
"My middle name is Ann also, as is my mum's. I'm not a big fan of it as its quite plain and boring. I'm afraid I won't be carrying this on as a middle name when I have kids. I like the name Annabelle though." Jun. 21, 2008:
"its only good when you trn it into something cute..like annie" Jun. 24, 2006:

"my dad named me ann because the first english names he knew were ann and george. i feel like my name is a bit outdated and ive never met someone my age that shares the same name as me. but that also means that my is unique in a way! a lot of people i know affectionately call me annie as a nickname." Feb. 26, 2021:
"Born 1964. I rarely find anyone in my age area with Ann as their first name. We are definitive on being the no E Ann. Middle name is Kathleen so very Irish sounding. I guess as I get older it is not as popular and the name is unique. Sometimes I think it is a harsh sounding name, but then again, I think it?s unique enough to stand out from the more popular names." Nov. 23, 2020:
"My name is Ann and when I was younger, I hated it. But after doing some research I was surprised that my name isn?t as common as most girls. The only reason I hated it is because I thought it looked weird." Nov. 14, 2020:
