I have a friend named Anjali. I think it’s a good name, but it sadly always gets mispronounced. She pronounces her name Ahn-Juh-Lee, but most people pronounce it Anh-Jal-Ee the first time they say it and she always has to correct them.

This is my own name and I absolutely love it! It's so beautiful, elegant, and sweet-sounding- but not to the point of sounding overly sugary or frilly- and not very common (at least in my own experience). However, if you decide to name your kid this, please keep in mind that non-Indians will constantly butcher and mutilate her name's spelling, on the basis that they assume it's some weird form of Angel or Angie.
Also, I don't understand why I see some people whining about the pronunciation of this name, both on this site and on others. I'm Indian myself (Indo-Caribbean to be exact) and both my family and I pronounce it as "AHN-juh-lee," stressing the first "a." I don't mind if people pronounce it the other way though; it just annoys me that there are some snobs out there crying about how there's only one way to pronounce the name.

My name is Anjali! My dad named me that because he is Indian, and he liked the meaning of the name.

This is my sister's name, and I love it. It suits her very well.
I hate how often people mispronounce it, though; it makes me want to deck them.
Also, I wish they'd include all the meanings of the name on here; it has different meanings in different dialects. The dialect my sister was named in has it as 'divine offering', but it sometimes means 'gratitude', etc.

I had a teacher with this name once. Although I didn't like her very much, I like this name. It's beautiful.

I find this me very pretty and sweet, and it's not very common. Plus, you could come up with a variety of cute nicknames.

Anjali is my middle name! It's a fantastic name. With some north Indians it actually means thank you. Either way it has a great meaning.
