    Re: Annelise Gianna??

    Hi! I know a Gianna who pronounces her name as "John-uh," with two syllables. so Annelise Gianna didn't sound "anne" heavy to me. (Then again, I may be mispronouncing Gianna...)

    Good luck! :-)

    Gianna is Italian for Jane, but Gian is John. So don't lop off the -na without making sure you understand what that does to the name!
    The only Gian I know is the famous Olympic swimmer from Australia and she is named Gian Rooney.

    Annelise Gianna??

    It'd be an easy way to use both our top names without having to decide.
    I love the name Annelise, but I have to say that the "anna" in Gianna is just too similar. I would go with something else.

    Re: Annelise Gianna??

    Hm, I was thinking in Italian about the pronunciation. More like what someone posted about "John-uh." Otherwise it may be a little repetitive as other people pointed out. I was thinking "ahn-nah leesah john uh." Sort of... hard/weird to type out phonetically.
