Gender: F Origin of Anneliese: German and Dutch combination of Anna and Liese

Anneliese, which may also be found as Annalisa, Annalise and so on, is a combined name with an Old World feel but some modern appeal. Though never on the U.S. Top 1000 with this spelling, the Annalise form -- undoubtedly clearer for English speakers -- is now Number 409 and trending upward.
