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."

While Anneliese (with German, Hebrew, Dutch or Nordic origins) is lovely, one might also consider its Latin counterpart, Analicia (also Analisa and Analiza). I have found that it means "graced with God's bounty" regardless of the root language.

I must admit, however, that I'm biased to the Latin versions because my name is Analicia Marie. I've met girls with variant spellings but never exactly like mine. I prefer to pronounce it Ah-nuh-lee-see-ah like you would in Spanish. However, most people I meet (English-speaking Americans) pronounce it Ann-uh-lee-shuh. When I was a kid it bothered me that it was different and "difficult" but now I absolutely adore it.
