Other than Annis/Annice, which are listed on this sited, I have come across Annes and Annest used as variants of Agnes.
Does anybody know whether they are legitimate variants or just different spellings? And if they are variants, how are they pronounced?

Also, were they (and Annis)still in use in the 17th century?
My sources stopped at the 16th century and they indicated Annes was still in use in Wales.

Thank you.
