My name is Annette. I was the only girl in my junior school and senior school with the name. Did not like it when i was younger but now I'm glad my parents called me it. Although my sister and some friends call me Netty for short..

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.

10/14/2023 18:32:08

My friends hate my name but love me. I love my name and love me. If my friends loved my name it would be a thumbs up, naturally!

10/07/2023 21:57:28

Hate it. Never liked it. It's not in any way novel and sounds too conservative.

09/26/2023 06:45:48

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.

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!

06/26/2023 20:52:58

Hi. I am Annette. I didn't particularly care for it when I was younger but, in my older years, I do like it. I think probably because it is my middle name and teache's always called me by my first name. Every year it would take a while to get them to call me Annette. My mother's side calls me 'Ah-Net', as is how I pronounce it. My father's side call me 'Ann-ette'. Friends typically call me 'Net' or 'Nette' and my sister calls me 'Nettie'. RE: 'Ah-Net' or 'Ann-ette', I don't feel one is more correct or incorrect than the other. It's all good. As long as they don't call me by my whole, entire name. Then I know I'm in trouble then! LOL! It was a hard name to learn to write. Especially cursive. Two 'n's', two 'e's', and two 't's'; and all those loops. It's really pretty written by someone with excellent penmenship. I don't really fall in that category. And, yes, it is always very frustrating being called Anita, Antonette, etc. It's surprising to me how often it is mis-spelled and mis-pronounced. I was born in 1971 and am about to turn 61 years old.

Well I do like the name jade because its a real pretty stone and its just a nice simple name to remember and when I'meet new people they love my name, but i've only met two other jades❤❤❤

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 othe's with my name, and I'm a flight attendant and I'meet people from all over.

03/12/2023 20:23:34

Yes this is my name. Many people pronounce it wrong likd sadie or said. It really makes me bad. But I am glad my parents named me that. The correct way to say my name is like "shy-day". I was named after the'singer. But I once met a nurse tha worked in the hospital in my home town and she'said my name was nigerian. i've only met a couple girls with the name'sade. But I like it It's unique and cute, a lot of people say I have a pretty name!

02/11/2023 18:06:46

02/05/2023 19:16:58

My name is Anette with only one n and it gets annoying to have people always ask me why only one n, but I think that It's good since I know that othe's people spell it this way even'though it might not be correct.

01/13/2023 14:04:10

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.

12/29/2022 21:24:10

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.

12/27/2022 21:29:56

i've only met one other person with my name. I really like it. I go by Annette not Anne. I think It's a solid confident name. Annette -Idaho

09/04/2022 10:13:32

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!

08/20/2022 16:09:36

01/18/2022 13:31:12

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 teache's 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 othe's

12/27/2021 20:53:06

Well my name is Annette, but my nephew calls me Aunt Annette & when he pronounces it altogether It'sounds like he is calling me "Antoinette". So I love it when it come out that way. I think It's a beautiful name as well as my name Annette.

10/12/2021 09:23:42

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.

09/27/2021 21:41:42

Don't like my name, never have. inter'stingly neither of my parents could remember who decided to call me it. I don't even have a middle name I could go by instead.

08/19/2021 20:44:06

My name is Annette. My nick names are Nettie, Net, and Ani. I love my name. My mother is Annette as well and she was named after Annette Funicello. 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. In school I was confused with Antoinette, Jannette or Yvette. I always corrected them since I was the only one of me ❤️
