Going by family name tradition, I would name my daughter [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lee[/name], [name]Anneliese[/name] pronounced like [name]Ah[/name]-na-lee-za.
I really like this name and would like to honor the namesake, but it definately doesn’t work with [name]Lee[/name] and I want to use that name too.
My mother Suggested useing a middle name like [name]Emily[/name] but spelling it as two names like [name]Emma[/name] [name]Lee[/name] or [name]Cora[/name] [name]Lee[/name]. What do you think of this? Also, do you think I should change the spelling to Anneliesa or even [name]Annalisa[/name]? It would certainly cut down on mispronunciation, but I think it sort of loses it’s charm. So… any oppinions? Please and thank you?

I thought [name]Anneliese[/name] was pronouced [name]ANN[/name]-ah-leeze. Hopefully Dearest from Norway can tell us how it’s pronounced. [name]Annalisa[/name] is pretty, too. [name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Emma[/name] [name]Lee[/name] and [name]Cora[/name] [name]Lee[/name] as much as [name]Emily[/name] and [name]Coralie[/name]. [name]Love[/name] the charm of the longer names.

Thanks! I think you can say it either way, the [name]German[/name] way is [name]Ah[/name]-na-lee-za, and the English way is the pronunciation you have.

I think that [name]Anneliese[/name] is really pretty. :slight_smile: Like you said, [name]Lee[/name] doesn’t make for the best flow in the middle. With [name]Emily[/name] in the middle, were you trying to work in the “lee” sound?

You mentioned first names other than [name]Anneliese[/name], so you may also like:

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name] (has the [name]Lee[/name] sound)
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] (ditto)

[name]Liesel[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Liesel[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Lee[/name] (Granted, it contains back-to-back Ls, but it’s from [name]Poe[/name]) :slight_smile:
[name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Juliana[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Lee[/name]

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

I was having a tough time coming up with combos.

I’ll keep this name on my mind and see if I can come up with more later.

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lauralee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Mary[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Rhiannon[/name] [name]Lee[/name]

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lauralee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Mary[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Lee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Rhiannon[/name] [name]Lee[/name]

I love [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]

[name]How[/name] about [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Leigh[/name] (pronouncing it as [name]LAY[/name] instead of [name]LEE[/name])?


[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lettie[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lexie[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lessie[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Leslie[/name]/[name]Leslee[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Lenore[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Leonie[/name]

You sort of get the [name]Lee[/name] in there that way.

[name]Don[/name]'t change the spelling, [name]Anneliese[/name] is perfect as it is. If you want to incorporate [name]Lee[/name] you might like [name]Annalie[/name] (ahn-nah-[name]LEE[/name]) its another form of [name]Anneliese[/name]. Its a [name]German[/name] name I believe.

One more suggestion. [name]How[/name] about?

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Elle[/name] (pronounced [name]El[/name]-ee or [name]Ell[/name]) – kind of the name [name]Lee[/name] turned inside out …

[name]Love[/name] the original spelling of [name]Anneliese[/name].
