Comments for ANEMONE:

"Anemone" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

A pretty name with a lovely meaning.

You gotta feel sorry for a kid named Anemone - they're going to be called Amenome or Annenome for their whole life. Not such a terrible name, but the thought of a three-year-old named Anemone makes me snort uncontrollably. Of course, it's also like naming your kid Acacia - everyone thinks of the plant (or animal).

The name is nice enough, but just think of a poor child called Anemone, going through life forever laughed at and compared to gooey, green tidepool-dwelling creatures.

Pronounced ah-neh-mohn in French.

Sounds like "an enemy".

Try saying "Anemone is an enemy" five times fast.

I love the meaning, look, and sound of Anemone--it's the perfect middle name or a name for a character in a story, but I don't know about a first name. It may be hard for a very young girl to pronounce it! All I can think of is that scene from "Finding Nemo". If you don't get what I'm talking about, I'll paraphrase.

TEACHER: What kind of home do you live in?
NEMO: I live in an ihn-ehn-nuhn-nee.
TEACHER: What?
NEMO: An an-ehn-ehm-ehn-EHM-nee.
TEACHER: Alright, don't hurt yourself.
NEMO: an-ehm-oh-nee.

"Finding Nemo" just popped into my head--

TEACHER: So, where do you live, Nemo?
NEMO: I live in an ameno. An ameneneneme. An amemememonemone--
TEACHER: It's all right, kid, don't hurt yourself.

This name is insanely hard to pronounce for a kid. Don't give your kid this name!

In Greek mythology, the Anemone is a flower sacred to Aphrodite. She transformed the blood of her slain lover, Adonis, into an Anemone. One implication is that the blood-red petals are symbolic of her lost love because they cling too loosely to the stem and are easily lost in the wind.

I feel sorry for any child who has to bear this name. The pronunciation jokes would be endless. If I had this name, I'm sure even I would get mixed up sometimes! Besides all that, I don't find the sound too pleasant.

I love Anemone, it is so bright and energetic. I don't feel that the pronunciation is too much of an obstacle.

Children will have a hard time pronouncing Anemone, and this name isn't pretty either. To me, it's just the name of a sea creature.

Anemone is a character in the anime/manga series Eureka Seven.
-- missmarlenesinclair  5/7/2010
This name makes me think of Finding Nemo when Nemo is trying to pronounce his home, but can't. So funny.
-- Liesl  9/28/2010
It's kind of cheesy, and small children (plus some adults) will have some trouble pronouncing it.

I've been looking for a longer name for "Annie" and have really fallen in love with Anemone! It can't be any harder for kids to pronounce than Aurora...

Idiots, idiots, idiots. There is also a type of flower (and I mean with petals) that are called anemones, not just the weird creatures. They are pretty flowers too, they come in a lot of colours. Please research if you think this name means the sea creature. This name is prettier than all of the weird trendy Ava Gay-va names these days. Beautiful.
