Nice, if you think it's ridiculous try it as a middle name.

Reminds me of the word "anemia".

Ridiculous as a name.

I used to think this word was pronounced an-ee-moan which I actually think would be a pretty name. Not a big fan of the actual pronunciation as a name though.

I like the flower and the sea creature is cute! Good associations indeed!

I think it's a beautiful word / name, but be aware that it will give people pronunciation trouble. If you spend 10 minutes in front of the sea anemones at an aquarium, at least in the U.S., you will notice that most people (adults!) cannot say this correctly. You'll hear "an enemy" or "Annie money" much more often than Anemone. But people find a way to mispronounce even the most basic names, so if you love Anemone, you needn't let that stop you, I guess.

Reminds me of sea creatures and enemies. No thanks.

Anemone Marmottan (b. 1988) is a French World Cup alpine ski racer.

The animal known as the sea Anemone was named so due to its resemblance to the flower.

We named our daughter Anemone June (after the flower and because she was born in June). As a two-year-old she can say her name very clearly without any difficulty. Her brother, age 6, has no issue with it either. We call her Nemi, Nem, or even Ani, for short (primarily to have an easier version for doctors, office receptionists, or other people who give us a sour face when we say her full name). I find it's mostly people who don't like any non-traditional names who seem to visibly scowl. But we don't care about that. The vast majority seem to genuinely like it when they hear it. We spent a lot of time thinking of any implications there could be for our daughter, but now we couldn't imagine her with any other name, and we all love it.

My name is Anemone, and it comes from Greek mythology, and it is not difficult to pronounce. Think "an em, an e". People who can't pronounce the name (including my 11th grade English teacher) are just lazy. My mother named me after the flower, which is one of the first to bloom in the wild in the spring.

Idiots, idiots, idiots. There is also a type of flower (and I mean with petals) that are called anemones, not just the weird creatures. They are pretty flowers too, they come in a lot of colours. Please research if you think this name means the sea creature. This name is prettier than all of the weird trendy Ava Gay-va names these days. Beautiful.

I've been looking for a longer name for "Annie" and have really fallen in love with Anemone! It can't be any harder for kids to pronounce than Aurora...
Madyson  1/6/2012
It's kind of cheesy, and small children (plus some adults) will have some trouble pronouncing it.

This name makes me think of Finding Nemo when Nemo is trying to pronounce his home, but can't. So funny.

Anemone is a character in the anime/manga series Eureka Seven.

Children will have a hard time pronouncing Anemone, and this name isn't pretty either. To me, it's just the name of a sea creature.
bananarama  4/13/2010
I love Anemone, it is so bright and energetic. I don't feel that the pronunciation is too much of an obstacle.
vomiting  1/7/2010
I feel sorry for any child who has to bear this name. The pronunciation jokes would be endless. If I had this name, I'm sure even I would get mixed up sometimes! Besides all that, I don't find the sound too pleasant.

In Greek mythology, the Anemone is a flower sacred to Aphrodite. She transformed the blood of her slain lover, Adonis, into an Anemone. One implication is that the blood-red petals are symbolic of her lost love because they cling too loosely to the stem and are easily lost in the wind.

"Finding Nemo" just popped into my head--

TEACHER: So, where do you live, Nemo?
NEMO: I live in an ameno. An ameneneneme. An amemememonemone--
TEACHER: It's all right, kid, don't hurt yourself.

This name is insanely hard to pronounce for a kid. Don't give your kid this name!

I love the meaning, look, and sound of Anemone--it's the perfect middle name or a name for a character in a story, but I don't know about a first name. It may be hard for a very young girl to pronounce it! All I can think of is that scene from "Finding Nemo". If you don't get what I'm talking about, I'll paraphrase.

TEACHER: What kind of home do you live in?
NEMO: I live in an ihn-ehn-nuhn-nee.
NEMO: An an-ehn-ehm-ehn-EHM-nee.
TEACHER: Alright, don't hurt yourself.
NEMO: an-ehm-oh-nee.

Try saying "Anemone is an enemy" five times fast.

Sounds like "an enemy".

Pronounced ah-neh-mohn in French.

The name is nice enough, but just think of a poor child called Anemone, going through life forever laughed at and compared to gooey, green tidepool-dwelling creatures.
lisjose  5/2/2007
You gotta feel sorry for a kid named Anemone - they're going to be called Amenome or Annenome for their whole life. Not such a terrible name, but the thought of a three-year-old named Anemone makes me snort uncontrollably. Of course, it's also like naming your kid Acacia - everyone thinks of the plant (or animal).
aqualime  11/15/2006
A pretty name with a lovely meaning.

"Anemone" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).
