I?m looking for a strong but feminine name that isn?t Amelia (love it but know three Amelias). What do you think about Anaïs?

OneLittleToddleTerror I am just going to assume you are the mother of either an Alfie or an Amelia and that you saw my comment as a personal attack. Your arguments have nothing to do with the OP's question.

I was merely pointing out that Amelia (TO ME) is not a strong name as per the original post and compared it to a name that is similar (TO ME) and that I quite like Anaïs.

Although, now people keep saying it's like Anus I have changed my mind anyways! grin

How about Anoushka?

All what I would call 'strong'

I think OneLittleToddleTerror must have an Amelia.

What about Arianne?

DD has a chinese name so it's foreign but hopefully not unpronounceable.

By the way, bring it back to the original Anais. If I was told once it's an-nay-eese or an-nay, I would remember it. So I'd say go for it if you like it. I work in an office with lots of foreigners and some of their names are absolute tongue twisters!

I am with those that forever associate it with erotica, and will imagine you are a fan of Anais Nin.
