Derived from the name of the city of Anniston in the state of Alabama. The city was founded in the late 19th century by Samuel Noble and Daniel Tyler, who named the city after the latter's daughter-in-law, Annie Tyler. As a result, the meaning of the name is literally "Annie's town".In some cases, Anniston as a given name can also be a variant spelling of Aniston.A known bearer of this name is the youngest daughter of American actress Chyler Leigh (b. 1982) and her husband Nathan West (b. 1978).
