I like this name but it's also cool spelled Inez. I'm not sure which is better.

This name is getting common in Croatia. I have 3 friends with this name: and their nicknames are: Inka, Innie and Nessi. I love this name!

I like this name enough to give it as my own at Starbucks. They tend to pronounce it "Einz". There goes my future daughter Ines...

In Italy Ines is a name for a granny. I've never met a young person with that name.

The name Ines was given to 90 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I love the French pronunciation, ee-NESS :)

My great-grandmother was born in Spain and her name was Inez (with the 'z'). When she was 13, she came to the United States and that's where it was changed to Ines. I have no idea how that happened. The name itself I really don't like but my grandmother was Ines Olivia and I like that combo. The Olivia softens the name somewhat. So, the name Ines, I really don't like but it is interesting, seems very European.

BTW I don't like the nickname 'Nes' or Nessie which I think it would inevitably get shortened to in this day and age. No little girl should have to endure any Loch Ness Monster jokes!
