"It's a gorgeous name when pronounced correctly. My mind is kind of blown at how many people think it's pronounced "Annay". I suppose I can understand the appeal of the softer sound, but maybe spell it differently to avoid confusion/embarrassment?" Jul. 11, 2018:
"My daughter is named Anais. (pronounced Anay to rhyme with 'away'). If it is pronounced anay-is it must have a diacritical mark over the i. In French the accent tr?ma ? (dieresis or umlaut) can be on an E, I, or U. It is used when two vowels are next to each other and both must be pronounced, e.g., na?ve, Sa?" May. 20, 2011:
