Comments for ANNELIESE:

We chose to do this name, but with a second "a" instead of the first "e"....Annaliese. Obviously, we loved this name, as it is the name of our daughter. Much to our 6 year old's pleasure, the newest Barbie movie, "The Princess and the Pauper" stars a Princess Anneliese.

In my opinion, Anneliese is one of the most beautiful names for a girl ever.

Pronounced un-neh-LEE-zeh.

This is also pronounced Ah-nah-LEE-zah. That is how Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea from That's So Raven on the Disney Channel) is pronounced.

I've always pronounced it "Ana-LEES," or "AnEL-LEESa."

This was Anne Frank's full first name, however she spelt it Annelies.

Annaliese is my first name, spelt this way. I like it because it is unusual and I have never had any problems with my name and get lots of compliments. I think people should consider using this name.

My mother, born in Cologne, West Germany (1924), gave me this name at my birth shortly after coming to the US in 1953. In German the "e" is pronounced like the soft "a" in English, hence Anneliese is pronounced "Annalisa" in Germany, but in the US our "e" is silent. There is an old song sung at carnival in Germany, "Anneliese". I was told that the name is a combination of Ann and Elizabeth.

My name is Annelize. My mother's side is French and my Father German. I had a friend called Annalize. In some name books it can be traced to 'something that shines' or something 'bright'.

Pretty name, but I like Annalise better.
-- mum2bubba  10/21/2005
My name is Annalise. My father wanted to spell my name, Anneliese, but my mother wouldn't let him. So my father "Americanized" it for her. That seemed to make her happy.

This is actually my name although I spell it ANNELESE, and I seem to be the only one. It is pronounced ANN-E-LESE. I have never really liked it but have come to appreciate its uniqueness.
-- eselenna  11/29/2005
I personally used to dislike this name as none of my friends could spell it right. But as I've gotten older my name has grown on me. From what I've read from other comments I've noticed I might be the only one who spells it like this - Annelliese, pronounced as ANNA-LEESE. Now I am proud to have this name as it is unique and mine.

I've traced this name back to the name Channah and Elizabeth. The name Hannah is derived from Channah and Anna is derived from Hannah. Liese is a pet form of Elizabeth.

Means "Gracious one, consecrated to God."

There are 3 appropriate & acceptable pronunciations. Ann-uh-LEEZE-uh, Ann-uh-LEESE-uh and Ann-uh-LEESE. German in origin, from Anne and Lisa or Anne and Elisabeth.

I like it spelled Annalise and it is the most beautiful name for a little girl. It is also a nice spin on paying respect to elders named Ann or Anna. It also goes great as a twin name or siblings named Reece (my son's name).
-- ajmom  2/10/2006
This is a very pretty name. Easy to grow up with too. I would use the spelling Annalise for ease of pronunciation and spelling.

Anneliese Michele was a German-born Roman Catholic girl that was believed to be possessed by six or more demons. The movie Emily Rose (2005) is based on her life.

I pronounce this Anna-leese.

My sister named her daughter Anneliese but they call her Anna - I love the name.

Anneliese Van Der Pol is 'Chelsea' on That's So Raven.

LOVE this name. Anneliese Katherine is a combination I like. Very pretty name. I think it has a lot of great qualities about it.

This is my name although I spell it Analyce. I love it however it's spelled though I think the sound of it is so classy and beautiful. When I have a little girl I'll use it as her middle name!

This is a gorgeous name! I'm hoping to name a future daughter Anneliese Gabrielle. The name Gabrielle would honor my older sister.

Barbie`s movie character Anneliese is very popular among girls.

A lovely name.

I speak German and Anneliese and Annaliese are not pronounced the same!

Anneliese/Annelise = UHN-nay-lee-zeh
Annaliese/Annalise = UHN-nuh-lee-zeh
Annalisa = UHN-nah-lee-zuh
-- Lily8  8/2/2008
I don't like this name because of the 'anal'.
-- Anonymous User  9/28/2008
Nice name, but I wouldn't use it. I still get nightmares from watching all those documentaries of Anneliese Michel. If you don't know who she is, I suggest you search her on Google or Youtube.
-- GunsnRoses8794  11/5/2008
This is such a pretty name, and it is really unique too! Beautiful! Any girl would be so lucky to have this name. (:
-- RosePetals016  6/26/2009
I have a cousin named Annelise. I think Anneliese is much more unique but if you want a simpler name you can go for Annelise.
-- Milena Scialfa  10/18/2009
The Dutch pronunciation for Anneliese is: ahn-nə-LEE-sə [noted -ed]
-- Lucille  5/28/2010
This name is LOVELY!
-- Chrila96  10/13/2010
DON'T change anything about the name Annelies(e)! It's lovely on its own in this particular form; on the other hand, "Annalise" seems, in my opinion, to give the name a rather pretentious, wannabe-like hue. That's what changing one letter does to it.
-- seraphine_eternal  10/15/2010
This is such a beautiful name! I'm only 13, but when I get married & have kids I think this would be a great name for a little girl! It's really cool that is was Anne Frank's name, I would recommend this name:)
-- -BekahBoo  10/21/2010
I prefer Annaliese. The 'e' in the middle of the name makes it look angry for some reason.
-- alma_aindop  12/5/2010
One of the best names ever. No kidding. Moms if you are considering this, use it.
-- Joy12  4/20/2011
I prefer Annaliese. It sounds prettier and looks better.
-- GibsonGirl  8/22/2011
I am actually decently fond of it, surprisingly enough. It seems very mature and incredibly acceptable in the business world, yet it never forsakes it's entirely evident childish nature. Very darling, very adult.

The opinion stated above is only valid to the name when it is spelled "Anneliese"-- any other way and it begins looking like some pretentious, infantile, kre8tiv, pompous "Shayanna," "Annakate," or whatever else your mind can formulate.

As an ending note: pronunciation is best left the German route.
-- Francesca  8/24/2011
Anneliese is very old fashioned in Germany.

I love the way Anneliese sounds, and considered it for my daughter; however, I can't get past the way it's spelled. To me, it looks like there's an extra letter that doesn't need to be there.
-- icybb  5/21/2012
My favorite name that includes Ann/Anna.
-- jazzycritique  5/18/2013
Love this name. Don't do Annalise or Annalyce or AnnAliese, they are horrible.
