This my grandmother's name, and I ADORE my grandmama so much. She's so kind, strong, and she was the one who compelled me to learn French. As for her name, I personally find it a very pretty and timeless name. It's feminine but it's not obnoxiously girly or frilly. It sounds classy on adults and sweet on kids. It's one of those names that sounds good at any age, as I can easily imagine both girls, teenagers, and adults having this name. It also has great nickname potential like "Annie" or "Anne" or "Nettie". If you're looking for a name similar to "Anna" or other similar and popular names such as "Annabelle" or "Ariana" but not quite as common, I say go for "Annette"!

Maybe a little frilly, but still pretty. I prefer this over Ann and Anne.

I really like the name Annette now, but I have a mildly amusing story about it. You know that song from Grease called "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee"? One of the lines from the song is, "Keep your filthy paws off my silky drawers / Would you pull that crap with Annette?," referring to Annette Funicello, who was a popular actress during the time period when Grease takes place (around 1960). But I first heard that song when I was 10, in 1984, and I wasn't exactly up on my mid-century teen cinema stars. So for many years, I thought the line was, "Would you pull that crap with a net?" I pictured a teenage boy trying to take off a girl's underwear with a fishing net until I was about 17 years old, and I didn't know how on earth that would work.

Anyway, Annette is a solid name and I can imagine it coming back in vogue soon. It has a cool-girl vibe, I think. Kind of rockabilly, like Kitty and Millie. I'd be impressed if I met a little Annette.

Good choice for a fisherman ("a net")

Kind of sad that this isn't on the top 1000 anymore... It's not the prettiest name, but it sounds very classic and elegant, at least in my opinion. And the spelling is beautiful :)

This name is fine, but I've never really cared for it very much. And it looks like "Anatidae" to me (Anatidae being the family that ducks and other duck-like birds belong to).
