It's a very uncommon name.

One of my middle names is Anali which is the Swiss/French version of this name. It is very uncommon and I like it as a middle name. It compliments my other middle name (Marie) nicely I think, and takes away from the over-use of the name Marie.

Anneli has a nice sound. Unfortunately, it reminds me of 'anally.'

This is also a Swedish name, originally used as a petform of Anne-Louise and similar names, but used as a seperate name since the late 1800's. Annelie is a more modern spelling, used 50/50 in Sweden.

This is also the Swiss pet form of Anna. -li is the diminutive ending in Swiss German.

That is my nickname, my real name is Ena, and everybody calls me Anneli. I pronounce it like a combination of Annie and Lee (Annielee).

I suppose that "Anneli" is (despite its frilly nature) moderately endearing, but all positivity from my end ceases there.

Just as a reminder, the forename-middlename combination of "Anna" and "Lee" is rather common-- and this name meshes them into a single. When I consider that, it makes the distaste that I have for it grow.
