I want to like this name, really I do... But the 'hita' (pronounced 'heeta') just isn't that beautiful to me...

I know an Anahit, not an Anahita. I like both, but I prefer Anahit.

Just the other day I met a lady named Anahita. She was Arab decent I think. Absolutely stunning: flawless skin, shaped eyebrows, manicured nails, dark hair. I didn't catch her name straight away when I first heard it, but now I think of it like a better version of Anita.
