    Annika?

    We just found out we're expecting!

    Our top girls' name right now is Annika. We also love the Dutch version, Anneke.

    We prefer the pronunciation On-i-ka (like Monica or Hannunkah), but realize most Americans would probably say Ann-i-kuh.


    So, what do you think of the name? Which version do you prefer? Which pronunciation do you prefer?

    I know a 12 year old Annika and I've only ever heard it pronounced On-i-ka (I'm Californian).

    I think it's a fantastic name!

    The only Annika I know was a girl from my high school. She was younger than me so in her early 20s.
    She was Ann-i-ka but I love On-i-ka. It's not a difficult name so once people hear it once or twice I don't think it'll be a problem.

    I believe that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
