  • "My name is Annette. I am 49 years old. I like my name but it constantly amazes me how many times it gets mispronounced, even when spelled correctly. I get Anita, Antinette, Antoinette, Lynnette, Jeanette etc. I actually worked with two other women around my age named Annette at one point in time over my career and that was when we had less than 200 employees. Pretty unique." Dec. 6, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love my name! After the Dionne quintuplet- and my paternal aunt! Loved that there were hardly any other girls named Annette." Jul. 17, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Annette and I'm grateful my parents picked this name meaning favor and grace. . It isn't a common name where I live but most people tell me they think it's a beautiful name. Yes, I have to spell it out to people most of the time but that's ok." May. 1, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is pronounced Ann ette, little Ann, a flat pronunciation for the Ann and a light, higher pronunciation for the ette. I never liked it as a child because I was always called Anna, which I liked and was used to, or Annie Oakley, which I hated. Now I always correct people and say it's Annette when improperly introduced by my siblings, which they still do!" Jan. 3, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Yes this is my name. I love my name because it is quite rare. I've only met a few girls with my name and when I do, I sort of don't like it because the name Annette only belongs to me. I pronounce my name, Ah-net. I've only had a few people who have called me Anita. I think that is strange. The only funny thing I can say about my name Annette, is when I introduce myself, I've had a couple say,"A what". Another note, my mother named me after my two grandmothers, Ann, but my mother didn't like that so she named me Annette." Oct. 26, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I thought I was the only one my age to be named Annette when I was in Jr high. By the time I graduated I had me only 1 other Annette. After I moved and was working in another city I ended up carpooling with another Annette. Sconce then and before facebook I had met at least 3 more Annette' s." Feb. 13, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Annette. I hated it when I was younger because I always had to spell it for people, but I love it now. I haven't met many people with my name, and I think that is awesome!" Jul. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Annette. I really like the name. I used to hate it when I was younger because it's so different. Now I'm glad that it is. I've probably only ran into 3 or 4 others with my name, and I'm a flight attendant and I meet people from all over." Oct. 8, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Anette. Only one "n". I was named after my aunt, because I was supposed to be born on her birth day, but instead I was born the day before. Still, I like the name, it makes me feel different." Jul. 21, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Annette and I've never liked it. It's boring, uninspiring, and I get mistaken for Annie or Anita all the time, which is annoying. Had I been able to pick my own name, this would not have been it." Apr. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

When people used to call me they asked for me by my nick names or if it was family I was ?little Annette?. In my neighborhood I was the only Annette.

  • "My name is Anette, only with one "n" because my mom wanted my name to be unique. At first I didn't like it because I would get made fun of because of the way it sounds "A-net" which is not how you say it. Even my teachers would spell it with double "n" . But but now that I'm in middle school I'm starting to love my name because it is unique and different from others" Jun. 26, 2016: Report as inappropriate
