Anneliese is the princess in the Barbie film The Princess and The Pauper, that was where I first encountered the name as a child, I think it's truly beautiful!

Anneliese sounds grounded and homey, but girly and princessy at the same time- the main reason I'm drawn to it. It's just lovely. I prefer this original Anneliese spelling since I feel it has the most character, although Annalise would probably be the most intuitive variant to most people unfamiliar with this name.

Hazelle Says:


I used to know an Anneliese, and though she seemed to be a lovely girl with a lovely name, she actually was quite mean. But over all, this is a beautiful name.
