Comments for the name Annika


Comments for ANNIKA:

Annika is pronounced as UNN-ick-ah in Sweden. Very popular among today's mothers, not among today's babies. Annika was Pippi's friend in "Pippi Longstocking" by Astrid Lindgren, one reason for the name's popularity in Sweden. Annika Sörenstam is a famous Swedish golf player.

Not to offend anyone but I find this name cold and a bit harsh.

My best friend is called Annika-Jane. I really love her name. I've never met another Annika-Jane though.

I used to not really like this name at all, but then I met a little girl named Annika and I grew to like it.

I knew a German girl with this name. It is so cute and sweet!

Annika Hansen is the character name of Seven of Nine of Star Trek: Voyager.

I LOVE the name Annika. I had never of heard of it until I saw Voyager, but it grew on me rather quickly. My therapist also has a daughter named Annika, ironically born the year "Seven of Nine" (human name Annika Hansen) was introduced to the series. Nope, no connection there.

I recently met a little girl with this name, only hers was spelt "Anyka". I dislike that spelling immensely, but I do find Annika to be a nice name. :)

I think Annika is quite cute, but you could also imagine a strong willed business woman too.

I prefer the name Annika pronounced like Anna-cuh. I'd like to name my daughter Annika one day.

This name used to be very popular in Germany in the 1980s. It isn't used very much now. The spelling Anika has also been used quite a lot.

I think it's pretty.

I just named my daughter Annika and I LOVE it! People compliment me/her all the time when I say what her name is. Although many people at first think I am saying "Monica." Also it has been highly annoying that so many people see the spelling Annika and pronounce it A-NEE-KA.

I first encountered this name on a rather unattractive baby on Maury. It didn't even sound like a real name to me, and my younger brother thought it sounded too much like "a nigga." The name just sounds harsh to me, and is also getting a bit too trendy; I prefer the Dutch form Anique.

Stop watching trash like Maury and maybe your impressions of all things would lighten and brighten! As for the name Annika, I really like it. It's spunky and sweet. I've known two Annika's. One a baby and the other an adult, she was wise and kind.

It's also a common name in Estonia.

For me, this name is the girl form of Anakin from Star Wars. I know it's not, but I like to think of it that way.

Annika is my number one favorite girl name of all time. If I ever have children, my daughter will be Annika. I think it's just absolutely gorgeous.

For nicknames you could use Anna, Ann, Anni, Nika, or anything else, really. I just love it, even though my family thinks it's too harsh sounding. But my eldest sister just named her car Annika.

Annika/Anika is also an Indian name, which means the goddess Durga.

Another name I don't get the appeal of. Its roots as a nickname are very off-putting, and it just sounds cutesy in general.

Annika Dries (born 1992 in San Diego, California) is an American water polo player and Olympic gold medalist.

This is my daughter's name (born in 1998). We have never had a negative comment about it. I think it's just different enough to be a little unusual but not "weird." We have met three other Annikas in our area: one with the same spelling, one with one N instead of two, and one that was spelled in some strange trendy fashion. I do have to admit that my daughter's nickname since she was tiny has been "Nan" and ironically I rarely call her Annika anymore. So much for the long search for the perfect girl's name!

I like this name. It's both simple and fresh. However, the American pronunciations (that I've heard) are terrible and make Annika sound quite whiny. It also looks a tryndee made-up name in English.

My name is Annika, and I get tons of compliments saying people like my name when they hear it :)

Love Annika! I've always wanted to name a future daughter of mine Annika Helen. Now I'm not sure about the middle name, but I do still love Annika and would still use it in a heartbeat. It honors my grandmother Anne and also part of my heritage.

I prefer ann neh kuh

Eh over E.

We named our daughter Annika in 2013 and I love it. The best part about it, for me is that it sounds lovely however its pronounced. I'm Canadian and my friends and family pronounce it "ANNE-ika" while my husband is Scandinavian and his family pronounce it "Auh-nika" I've even had people pronounce it "auh-NEE-kah" and I think that's great too. I never correct people because, to me, that's the beauty of the name - it sounds lovely all over the world. I also like the nicknames that she has to choose from - Annie, Ann, Anna, Nika. I'm so happy we choose this name.
