Looks like it's meant to be Annalise?
It's pretty but a child would have to spell it out every time.

There's also a suburb of Croydon called Anerley.

TurquoiseRose Mon 17-Apr-17 10:07:38

Well, we could go for Anneliese on the BC.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 10:08:15

Annelie... Where I'm from it simply means little Anna(Anne).

I personally dislike it, tbh.

But I do like Annaliese and Anna Lisa...

Swearwolf Mon 17-Apr-17 10:08:30

Isn't it usually spelt anneli? I like it but I think it will get confused with amelie quite easily - written down the double n looks similar to an M and amelie is so very popular.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 10:09:07

Oops, missed that update.

I really like Annaliese nn Annelie smile!

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 10:10:00

Or Anneliese. Shoot... My comments are a mess blush

Looks like you couldn't spell Amelie. She'll spend her whole life correcting people.

TurquoiseRose Mon 17-Apr-17 10:11:42

I do prefer Annelie though... It means more to us, but if it will be too much of a pain, we would go with Anneliese.

Looks like you couldn't spell Amelie

Makes me think of Amielle vaginal dilators!

A bit too similar sounding to Anally - as in Anal

Chasingsquirrels Mon 17-Apr-17 10:14:27

My friend had an Annelie, with that spelling.
I'd never heard of it before.
I think it's a really pretty name.

Had a friend at school in the 70's called Anneli. Have never met another one. I think it's german (not entirely sure) but she was most definitely Welsh. She lived up to its uniqueness too and loved being different. Would not have bothered her one jot to keep correcting people. Although I don't remember it happening that often. Confident and sassy is how I remember her.

TurquoiseRose Mon 17-Apr-17 10:22:10

We're Swedish, but live in London.

Chasingsquirrels Mon 17-Apr-17 10:23:33

Yeah, my friend is half Swedish - but lives in a village in East Anglia.
She's never mentioned having problems with her daughters name.

60percentofthetime Mon 17-Apr-17 10:24:23

How are pronouncing it (if any different from the obvious)? Unfortunately all I see is Anally, as countycouncil said

AgentCooper Mon 17-Apr-17 10:24:31

I know an Anneli, it's a lovely name.

daisypond Mon 17-Apr-17 10:25:16

Annelie is a normal name. I'm surprised that people haven't heard of it. It's more "standard" than Amelie, to me. It's a nice name, so go for it if you like it. Though you may get people spelling it as Anna-Lee or Anna-Leigh, so be prepared for that.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 10:33:17

I have heard of the name (one of my grandmothers is from Sweden). But I still don't like it as a given name for the bc.

I prefer Anneliese.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 10:34:30

Mybe because the "li" ending usually just means little in Swiss German...

Idk. But that probably doesn't really matter to a Swedish person or somebody living in the UK, I must admit wink

SuperBeagle Mon 17-Apr-17 10:39:13

I have a family member named this.

Everyone misspells and mispronounces it constantly.

It shits her mother to no end. They went with a very well known and easily spelt/pronounced name for their second (think James for a boy, or Grace for a girl).

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 17-Apr-17 10:44:38

I love Annelie, it's so pretty and different.

AmysTiara Mon 17-Apr-17 10:46:01

I like it. I like Annelise too.

Sophronia Mon 17-Apr-17 12:07:43

It's lovely. Anneliese is beautiful too.
