I actually have a friend named fanny. Not that abnormal! Embrace it!
Honestly, I don't think it matters as much as you'd think. Kids today will make fun of everyone, no matter their name. Heck, kids taunted me when I was young because my last name was Jones. They called me Bones in a way that would hurt my feelings. (Of course not anymore, but young kids can be quite sensitive)
could be worse... my teacher had a student who's name was female. She told everyone it was.pronounced fuh-ma-lee. Haha. Turns out her mom had immigrated here and when she gave birth to her she saw the birth certificate said "female" and her.last name, and she assumed the hospital named her baby for her and left it like that.
What does her being French have to do with anything? Not quite sure I get it. Anyway, naming your child should be something you both do together. So keep trying to talk it out with her!
Correct me if I'm wrong but... Doesn't fanny mean pussy? What sane mother would want to stick her child with such an easy name to make fun of? I think it's time to have a long talk with the wifey.
Maybe you should talk to your wife and just explain why you don't like the name and how others might judge the name explain you are just trying to lookout for your daughter because kids now a days might bully her it's a sad thing but that's how the world can be now a days If not embrace it she's not the only one and maybe nickname her ann or something so others will call her the same good luck! But if all else fails it's just a name love your daughter for who she is! :)
Fanny is just a little old fashioned, but nothing bad. At least she's not demanding Abdce or So'Unique or one of the hundred misspellings of perfectly normal names (ie Mykaylah instead of Makayla or Brytny instead of Brittany).
