    Question Is it usable?

    I recently came across the name Annemie and I quite like it and nn Emie
    My concern is this: does it sound too much like anemia?
    Also, if you could tell me what you think of it as a name that would be nice!
    TIA

    My first thought was Anime. I think I'd prefer it if it was spelt Anemie. I'm not a fan sorry, but Emie is cute!

    I think it's got more problems than it's worth. My first thought was Anime, too. Then enema. I also read it as Annemarie. I'm not sure how to pronounce it, it'd probably guess anna-me. But I guess it's supposed to be uh-nee-me? If you really love it it's workable, but I think there are better options out there. How are you pronouncing Emie? How about a different name with that nickname?

    I thought Anime too and enemy shortly after. It looks pretty, and I love Emie as a nickname, but I don't think I'd use it.

    It's a pretty name - Dutch, I think, and possibly short for Annemieke. Someone may be along to correct me on that.

    BUT yes, it does sound a bit like anaemia, and a lot like anime (not a huge problem) and enemy (a worse problem I'd say). I don't think it's totally unusable though.

    How do you feel about the full Annemieke (AN-neh-MEE-keh)?
