    Hi girls,

    Just wondering how you pronounce the name Anais?

    I'm from the north west of England and have to be careful with some girls names as I feel my accent can make them sound common! LOL

    I would pronounce it 'a-nay'

    Is this completely wrong?? :dohh:

    I say it a-nay-eace (like 'peace) I believe that is the French pronunciation. :) Your way is also correct, though.

    What do you think of "Anahi" or Anaih" ?

    I know that's an American Indian name but I'm not sure how it's really spelled, but it lacks the S. I'm pretty sure it's pronounced A-nah-ee.

    Well it's definitely pronounced differently around the world! Here down south in the U.S.A., we (or at least many/most) of us pronounce it "Anna eece" ;)

    I would pronounce it "Annah-ees" or "Ah-nice". The first one is how I've seen the pronunciation described on other sites and the second is how it would be pronounced in my mother tongue.
