It truly changed how I felt about myself when I changed how I felt about my name :) I also enjoy reading the historical uses of the name -religious/mythological, cultural - all of it - though I don't think my parents had any basis; they just agreed on it ;) Love to all you other Anitas!"

  • "I go by Anita but I was christened Ana. My mother is Peruvian and told me that it is very common for girls christened Ana to go by Anita as children. Later as a woman, the name is altered to Ana. It is also a term of endearment for that namesake so it is possible to have the Ana but be referred to as Anita by friends and family." Jan. 11, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Aineta, pronounced Anita. I've never been fond of it, partially because of the spelling and partially because of the jokes. It gets tiring. But, now that I'm older I've come to accept it and am now really comfortable with it. Most people think the spelling is cool. I'm not so sure it's not another name altogether, but or me it's Anita. LOL" Feb. 22, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like writing my name but it's taken me a while to really appreciate it. I was named after my great grandmother and I didn't have a great relationship with my grandmother so I didn't really appreciate the name. Also, I find it hard when introducing myself because people aren't used to the name so I find I have to say it twice. Also, I kinda slur my words so people think that my name it Anida because I say it quickly so I need to find a way to fix that problem. Also, my friends call me Neets but I wish that there was a better nick name for my name." Sep. 29, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "this is my name, I went to a very small school and there were 3 other girls with this name. I did have to put up with a lot of joking though, everyone said it as needa so all kinds of things got put with it for what I needed...I just laughed it off and went on. My friends would also call me neeter and family was nene because younger kids couldn't say Anita. It's been an okay name, but I like some other names better, but it could have been worse." Jan. 8, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My husband and some family members call me Nita, which is fine, but I never liked it when someone called me Annie. Some people call me Niter or make jokes about being "neat." Because my last name used to be Reader, I got a lot of teasing as Niter Reader. Parents should make sure the two names go well together and do NOT rhyme!" Jan. 3, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Name is AnitaMarie, but everyone calls me Anita. Alot of times people do say it "a need a" it has actually become a joke at work, but i still like my name, it is not very common and I haveonly met one other person with the same name, I dont think I would like a common name like sarah or emily.
