Anne Shirley in the series of books starting with "Anne of Green Gables". I think that the author gave her the name Anne because it was/is a "plain" name. I personally do not think that the name Anne is plain, but there is another character in the books named Diana Barry. The name Diana is more elegant. I don't think that there are enough nicknames for Diana, Anne has at least three nicknames, Annie, Andie, Nan. Anne is also a nice name to hyphenate, Anne-Therese, Anne-Marie, Anne-Martine, Anne-Justine.
