My mother (Russian) would say: "Anouka... (do this or that)" when she was impatient and wanted fast results. It's some expression of impatience. There is a girl in my daughter's class named Anouk and I can't shake that irritated feeling from the sound Anouk (thanks, mom!)

Anouk Aimée was born Nicole Françoise Florence Dreyfus, but adopted the name Anouk after the character she played in her first film role, aged just 14.

Anouk Rocher, the daughter in Joanne Harris' "Chocolat" and its sequels, was named after the author's own daughter, Anouchka.

This is one of my favorite names. It makes me think of an imaginative little girl who is a bit wonky but lovely to be around.

I really like this name. I think it's very cute. Makes me think of the name Anna.

In Georgia, we spell it without an "o". Anuki is one of the Georgian diminutives of Anna. [noted -ed]

One of my neighbors is named Anouk. She's pretty cool and has a super unique name. It's fun to say. :D.

A-nook? Eh... That's not a very pretty name. At least to me, although I guess a lot of people disagree. I like chinook, for a Siberian husky dog.

I named my daughter Anouk. It means "snowflake" in Inuit (spoken in Canada).

I love this name. It was high on my list of girls names but my sister got pregnant with a girl first, so now I have a niece named Anouk! The only thing I don't love about it is that they call her "Nouki" sometimes which sounds weird. It doesn't lend itself to a lot of obvious nicknames.

Gorgeous name. My favorite for years. I am happy it is uncommon and unique.

Hmm. This is an interesting name. It makes me think of "Farouk" for some reason, even though they're definitely not linguistically related. It must be the spelling. Well, I like it.

I think the Inuit name everyone's searching for here is Nanook, as in "Nanook of the North", the first feature-length documentary filmed in the silent movie era. "Nanook" means "polar bear" in the Inuit language.

I have a good friend and an acquaintance with this name and I like it. It's quite common here in Holland and we don't use it as a pet form of Anne anymore but as a name on itself.

Sounds Eskimo, despite being French and Dutch.

Also short for 'Anouska', I do believe. :)

Anouk is a pretty name. I'm changing my name to it.

I taught a girl named Anouk who was born in the 1980s. She said that her parents believed it to be an Inuit name but had no idea where they had found it. Since they are English-speaking South Africans, it must surely have been in a book of some kind.
