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.

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.

My name is Anemone, and it comes from Greek mythology, and it is not difficult to pronounce. Think "an em, an e". People who can't pronounce the name (including my 11th grade English teacher) are just lazy. My mother named me after the flower, which is one of the first to bloom in the wild in the spring.
