Comments for the name Anaïs


Comments for ANAÏS:

I love the name Anaïs! I think that it would be very pretty for a girl here, but unfortunately, Americans don't normally use the accent tréma.

Anaïs is very beautiful. It's a shame that it isn't a more cosmopolitan name that people in lots of different countries could use.

A famous bearer of this name was the French-born American authoress, Anaïs Nin (1903-1977).

According to the Wikipedia site for the Anaïs Nin (1903-1977), the pronunciation is "ana-EESE" [ana'i:s].

It's my sister's name and yes, the S must be pronounced in French. Also, a famous perfume from Cacharel is named 'Anaïs Anaïs'.

An amazing, awesome singer called Anais Mitchell was born in Vermont and won the Kerrville folk festival in Texas. I really, really, really recommend her!

Lovely! The sound, spelling, it's all nice.

This is an absolutely gorgeous name. It was my French name in French class two years ago. My teacher then pronounced the s. It had a light and delicate sound ("ah-nah-ees".) But then I got a new teacher, who didn't pronounce the s at the end, so she made me change it to Anaïse, and pronounced it as "ahn-ah-eez."
Still, either way, a pretty name.

Anais is also Hebrew for "graceful", Latin for "God's grace", French for Anna, meaning "favor" or "grace".

I love the name Anais! It's beautiful! So bright, and intelligent. This is a name more parents should consider. It's almost a shame that more parents haven't named their kids this, but if it was popular I wouldn't want to use it! So parents, feel free to use this name, but don't overuse it please!

This is a gorgeous name, though the pronunciation may be difficult for some.

I like the name, always had. Always pronounced it differently. A-nice/uh-nice. However I think it could be tricky since it has the two dots on the i, it would be hard in school. It's pretty though.

I adore this name! I will definitely call my daughter this.

Anaïs Lameche was a member of the Swedish pop group PLAY.
-- ShizukoChan  7/27/2007
I would never name a child this. It looks too much like the word anus.

It's a beautiful name, ultra feminine and exotic. Anais has an etheral ring to it, I also love how it's short and simple, yet so classy and elegant. I'm glad it's not overly used, that keeps it special!

It's a gorgeous name! Sweet and delicate, you can also spell it: ANNAIS. To avoid mispronunciations.

I like this name, but not enough for me to use it myself because nobody will pronounce this name correctly.
-- bananarama  9/18/2008
When I first saw this name, I thought it was pronounced "an ass."
-- GunsnRoses8794  11/24/2008
It is derived from the Persian goddess of love, Anaitis.

I heard it for the first time when my mother had this perfume called "Anais-Anais" by Cacharel. I hated the perfume a lot (I was 10), but the name was so beautiful. I thought of a girl named "Anais" as a very feminine, playful and very chic but still classy, romantic and had a flair for classic florals.

Nine years later, I still think it's a beautiful name, and the perfume is still not my cup of tea, but "Promesse" by Cacharel is my favorite perfume.

Nobody knows how to pronounce it in the US. Unfortunately, it sort of reminds me of "anus," though it is a very pretty name.

The little sister of my best friend is named Anais. I think it is unique and I especially love the two dots on the "i".
-- Milena Scialfa  10/18/2009
This name is so gorgeous I even don't know how to express my delight and admiration!
-- Anonymous User  12/10/2009
I like to pronounce it "Ah-NIE-uh" it sounds so exotic. Like the courageous warrior princess you'd see in a book or in a movie...
-- writer371  4/11/2011
I used to think it was pronounced A-nay. Quite upset with the proper pronunciation, but if I had a child called Anais, I'd pronounce it A-nay.

I wouldn't name my kid this, but it's still elegant, beautiful, and delicate. Anais sounds like a name for a beautiful and exotic woman. I can picture an Anais having her name mispronounced often, though. Maybe it's best as a middle name.
-- avengingangelx3  6/10/2013
Actually, I have heard it pronounced more like ah-nay or Anna. I agree with the poster who said they prefer that pronunciation. I think if you want it to be said like that, you would spell it Anais, without the dots over the i.
