How to spell this name?!
I really like the name ahn-uh-leese, but I have no clue how to spell it! I feel like using Annelise or any other spelling with two N's will get it said like "ann" but I'm concerned with using something like Analise because of the first four letters. Is there any good way to spell this? I'm at a loss.
Also, wondering if anyone has any suggestions of names that begin with ah-nuh. I really love the sound of that name, but would prefer something a little longer than Ana. Thanks!

Haha. I do commiserate with you on the Analise spelling. It's the exact reason I use the Annelise spelling myself. I guess if you want to go phonetic you could try Onalise, but it still looks like it's misspelled or kr8tively spelled. I would just stick with Annelise. I think most people would recognize it, and usually if you do have to correct someone, you only have to do it once.Married mother of 4 (plus one angel in heaven) thinking about TTC in 2 or 3 years

My college roommate was named Analisa and as far as I know no one ever commented on the first four letters thing. I personally don't think it's that big of a deal as the pronunciation is completely different and the commonly used nicknames wouldn't even contain all of the letters (my roommate went by both Ana and Lise among friends).
That being said, I vastly prefer Analise to Annelise which to me looks like it's trying too hard and I would be more inclined to pronounce it Ann-uh-leese instead of Ahna-leese.
