Comments for the name Anna

Comments for ANNA:

This is my name, yet it also the name of my cousin and deceased grandmother so it's not very original in my family. I am Ukrainian and it is pronounced an-ya, yet spelled this way and pronounced the English way in obviously English. I do believe there is another root, Ana in Spanish?

In Poland we pronounce it an-na (not like in English 'ana'). This is also my name :) But this form is used only in official situations. My friends and family use pet forms like Ania or Anka.

Usually pronounced ann-uh in English, but sometimes pronounced Ah-nuh. In my experience, people who pronounce it Ah-nuh always throw a fit if you pronounce it Ann-uh. It's funny. I guess either way is ok to me.

Pronounced Ahn-Nah in Norwegian, NOT Ah-Nah. Curse you Frozen, you keep saying it more like we'd say Ana.

I have a deep dislike for English speakers pronouncing this name "Ah-nə". It has two Ns in it, and double consonants are always pronounced with short, sharp vowels in English - not a long, drawn out, pompous "ahhhhhhhhh"!

Trying to pronounce it the "European" way is not going to make the name any less boring, so stop being so "Hyacinth Bucket"!
