I taught a girl named Anouk who was born in the 1980s. She said that her parents believed it to be an Inuit name but had no idea where they had found it. Since they are English-speaking South Africans, it must surely have been in a book of some kind.

Anouk is a pretty name. I'm changing my name to it.

Also short for 'Anouska', I do believe. :)

Sounds Eskimo, despite being French and Dutch.

I have a good friend and an acquaintance with this name and I like it. It's quite common here in Holland and we don't use it as a pet form of Anne anymore but as a name on itself.

I think the Inuit name everyone's searching for here is Nanook, as in "Nanook of the North", the first feature-length documentary filmed in the silent movie era. "Nanook" means "polar bear" in the Inuit language.

Hmm. This is an interesting name. It makes me think of "Farouk" for some reason, even though they're definitely not linguistically related. It must be the spelling. Well, I like it.

Gorgeous name. My favorite for years. I am happy it is uncommon and unique.

Love love this name. I hope it stays under the radar. So spunky & feminine.

I love this name. It was high on my list of girls names but my sister got pregnant with a girl first, so now I have a niece named Anouk! The only thing I don't love about it is that they call her "Nouki" sometimes which sounds weird. It doesn't lend itself to a lot of obvious nicknames.

I named my daughter Anouk. It means "snowflake" in Inuit (spoken in Canada).

A-nook? Eh... That's not a very pretty name. At least to me, although I guess a lot of people disagree. I like chinook, for a Siberian husky dog.

One of my neighbors is named Anouk. She's pretty cool and has a super unique name. It's fun to say. :D.

In Georgia, we spell it without an "o". Anuki is one of the Georgian diminutives of Anna. [noted -ed]
