I like Ines. Not like it's one of my favourite names, but I just like its sound. I think it's kind of refreshing. However I don't like when people use it here in Poland because it's a bit pretentious over here as we have our familiar, traditional form. When I was a little girl I met an Ines a few years older than me and I was really intrigued by her name and it stayed with me for years. I thought it was a rare and original name. And I still think so, but I just prefer it on people outside of my country, it kind of clashes with most Polish surnames in my opinion. It's pronounced EE-nes here and since that's the first pronunciation of this name I've heard, I tend to stick to it. Recently I've heard that we have also other form of Ines in use and it is Inezja (ee-NEZ-yah). I like it I think. As for diminutives, that Ines I mentioned was called Nesi by her friends and Ineska by teachers and her parents. I find Ineska very charming. As for spelling, I think I slightly prefer Ines to Inez.

Nowadays Ines is also rarely used in Poland along with Agnes. However the actual and most popular form of this name here is Agnieszka.

I know a girl from Santo Domingo named Yhnieska. Her name is a Russian pet form of Ines or Inez. It's a very rare name!

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!

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

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