    If I was in a French-speaking country, I'd say ah-nah-EECE, but the Anglicized version is uh-NYE-iss.

    I have never heard anyone pronounce Anais that way.

    I've heard it twice outside of France, one said it 'ah-NAY', rhyming with Rene. The other said it ah-NAYS (phonetically, I suppose).

    The French say it AN-ah-EES.
