This is my middle name, although for me it's pronounced an-ees (not really an alternate pronunciation, my parents just thought it sounded better, lol)

PrudenceA Says:


It's a beautiful name, a friend has twin girls, one is Elke and the other Anise. Its sad that some make the anatomical connection.

I love the spice, and it has happy memories of a kind person. I grew up an Anis in my class. Never caught the similar word until a substitute teacher mispronouned it. Teasing didn't last more than a week, and now Anis is a dentist.
