Just that really.. grin

I really love it but spelt Anneliese. I'm thinking of it as a middle name if I ever have another daughter. Also love how in the first name spot it can be shortened to Annie

I really like it.

GoodyGoodyGumdrops Sat 29-Apr-17 11:13:03

I like it. I've known a few and they all spelled it differently. TBH your spelling is my least favourite - it looks like an illiterate 'analyse' (sorry).

I haven't ever come across a child called any variant of Anneliese, though.

My friend has an Analise, personally i've always loved the name anna/ana so with it available as an abbreviation i quite like it.

Pretty name

potatomama Sat 29-Apr-17 11:33:49

bit hard to spell, you/she will forever be spelling it out to people

MrsMozart Sat 29-Apr-17 11:43:08

I like it smile

Lovely. I first heard it when a wee sprog watching home & away (or neighbours, can't remember) and thought it such a pretty name I would call my daughter it!

Beebeeeight Sat 29-Apr-17 11:50:14

It's nice but does make me think of the airhead from neighbours!

Hulder Sat 29-Apr-17 12:01:52

Well clearly it's mispelt grin <outself>

It's a brilliant name but invariably pronounced wrongly by English speakers - would be pronounced Annalisa, spellings vary widely across European countries and are not helpful and often and in -e which doesn't help. Anneliese should be pronounced Annalisa this isn't my spelling by the way, there are other Nordic variations

A lifetime of correcting the spelling and pronunciation, plus telling people you don't shorten it awaits but it is the best name ever!

I came on the say the same as Beebeeeight

SuperBeagle Sat 29-Apr-17 12:19:26

I don't like it, but I love Anna on its own.

iklboo Sat 29-Apr-17 12:23:42

I know an Annalise. She's lovely.

Dozer Sat 29-Apr-17 12:24:26

Aussie soap character from 90s, so would think antipodean.

GenerationYmember Sat 29-Apr-17 12:44:58

Cheers guys, the spelling is a bit of an issue, like all my favourite names sad

My middle name is Anne so I'm reluctant to go for the Annelise spelling and I think the Annalise spelling is more well known which could make it easier for her?!

The neighbours character does not put me off! She was gorgeous..

❤️ Anneliese.

I like Annalisa smile

Anneliese sounds very old-fashioned to me (my first language is German, so maybe not an association in the UK). And I'm sorry to say, but not a good old-fashioned. The name is "bad" old-fashioned, in my personal (!!) opinion. I'm not trying to insult anybody, that's just how I feel about that name.

Anneliese? Imo no.
Annaliese? nice.
Annalisa? lovely.

FeedTheSharkAndItWillBite Sat 29-Apr-17 21:02:39

Sorry, forgot to mention it:

Annalise is nice imo.

Btw, looking at that screen I started to get so confused. Anna/Anne/Liese/Lise/Lisa... It all started to look the same. I hope I didn't confuse them ultimately. blush confused

Isadora2007 Sat 29-Apr-17 21:04:16

Too confusing to spell and the one I know is a spoilt little horror so I have a bad connotation for that name.

I know a little Annalese.

user1492781016 Sat 29-Apr-17 21:14:11

it's the best name I have very heard wink plus your spelling is the best and easiest way in my opinion. It was hard enough learning to spell growing up if am honest but that way is the best.

Sophronia Sat 29-Apr-17 22:44:22

Love it spelled Annaliese.
