We named our daughter Annika in 2013 and I love it. The best part about it, for me is that it sounds lovely however its pronounced. I'm Canadian and my friends and family pronounce it "ANNE-ika" while my husband is Scandinavian and his family pronounce it "Auh-nika" I've even had people pronounce it "auh-NEE-kah" and I think that's great too. I never correct people because, to me, that's the beauty of the name - it sounds lovely all over the world. I also like the nicknames that she has to choose from - Annie, Ann, Anna, Nika. I'm so happy we choose this name.
