I used to be really crazy about school stories a couple of years ago (still like them), especially those set in boarding schools. Anyway, one of the more obscure series' I devoured was the Chalet School series by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, and those books had a character - a teacher - named Miss Annersley. I've never heard of the name anywhere else, and I really like it. I guess it counts as a surname name, like Kennedy or Connelly, so why not Annersley (also, it lends itself really easily to nns like Anna, Annie etc)? What do you think?

I have a feeling I also read those books... though I don't remember the teacher. I can't imagine Annersley as a first name though.~Boys~

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

Annersley is just bad. I just hear Anna in a twangy accent with the very tired and trendy -ley ending tacked on for good measure.Emily, 19, Southeastern US.
