Comments and insights on the name Anaïs: | Edit

I really like this name. It was the name of a popular French perfume in the 1980s, but most importantly it is a French name. A college friend of mine had a niece that looked like a little cherub, when I asked her name she said: Anais. I fell in love with the name right then and there. She was a gorgeous little Austrian girl with a name to match! I'm heavily considering this name for my soon-to-be-born little girl. Only 2 weeks or less left for ... Anais!
