User comments for Anna (Pronunciation Only)

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"!

Anna from Frozen has this name pronounced wrong. They say they pronounce it the Norwegian way, but they don't. They say how we'd say Ana, not Anna. It has two N's Frozen creators, when I first watched Frozen I thought her name was Ana in English and Anna in Norwegian, not the latter in both. Learn to pronounce it right if you're going for how it's said in a specific language.
