My name is Anya, and the pronunciation thing is a funny one. Americans say Ahh-nya, and Brits say Ann-ya. It just sounds weird if either'say it the other way around.

11/23/2023 01:19:52

Hello! My name is Anya and yes, all my life i've also had to correct othe's, hear weird pronunciations of it, and was often called either Onion or Anastasia (cause of the animated fI'm). But like everyone else here, I always get complimented on how beautiful my name is. However, unlike everyone here, I'm Japanese. And what my mom didn't realize , is that when I spell my name in kanji, it reads as 諳夜 (AN-YA) which means 'dark night'. I think that's my favorite meaning :)

10/27/2023 07:28:40

My daughter is 6 I named her Anya because I read a book called Cat's Eye by WillI'm Johnstone the book was amazing and I loved the name everybody that has heard her name loves it they ask us both how we would like it pronounced my daughter'says onya I say annya It's really awesome

10/03/2023 23:01:54

I was born in 1987, and at that time in the US Anya was a very uncommon name. In fact I went all the way into my mid-twenties before I encountered another person with the'same name. When I was growing up, I got extremely frustrated with people mispronouncing it, mispelling it, and especially making jokes like "onion", "gonna jump on ya" and "anya lasagna", or asking me if I'meant "Tanya" as if I didn't actually know my own name. It's been weird, in recent years starting to get a "such a pretty name!" reaction from people, when it used to always be "that's a strange name" when I was growing up.

09/29/2023 23:48:42

My name is Anya. In a way, I do like it because i've only met one other per'son with my name. On the other hand, I don't like that it Isn't one of those names that you can shorten'to something (e.g. Elizabeth-Lizzy). I sometimes get people saying it A-nay-a which is a bit annoying and I also sometimes get It'spelt the German way- Anja.

09/29/2023 15:34:58

I have named my daughter 'Aanya', with 'Aa' to stress the vowels. coz in Hidi, 'Anya' means 'something else'. i hope she doesn't go through the teasing and comes back crying to get her name changed. I like this name'since this has a nice sophisticated feel to it, with a nice meaning in a lot of languages

09/18/2023 21:50:32

I name my daughter this name this year of 2019. I get alot of compliments,and asked what does it mean. Of which I found to be a variant of ann which means grace. I thought it was a different name that no one else would have, but I have met so many people who have or know somebody name Anya.

09/16/2023 09:53:20

My name is Anya. I was born in 1947. It has been mispronounced a lot, and I too was called Onion. Not quite sure why. The name was my mother's and her mother was Polish/Russian. I was not happy with the name growing up and changed to my middle name of Nancy in the 2nd grade around age 7.

07/09/2023 17:45:36

My name is also Anya. Being from the'south I was ALWAYS called onion because southerners pronounced it UN-YA instead of An-YA. In school I always knew when'the teacher was at my name because there would be a weird pause. I am so glad I have the name Anya. I get so many compliments. I hope to give my daugter a unique name as well so she'stands out from the crowd.

07/07/2023 19:19:32

06/12/2023 15:05:24

May daughter was named Anja. She was born on September 08 which is birthday of Virgin Mary in catholic tradition. Our family is from Croatia where we also live. In my country Anja is common spelling of the name but unlike Ana it is rare because of Russian origins. We named our daughter Anja because there are thousands of Anas in our country. Because she was born on September the eight we baptized her Anja Marija (Mary in Croatian).

06/08/2023 02:56:20

My name is D'Anya... so I'm assuming it means "of favor" or "of grace"

06/01/2023 11:03:48

I am of East Indian origin and my husband is Caucasian American with a variety of ethnicties mixed in. We wanted to honor both of our heritages when we found out that I was pregnant. Anya fit the bill perfectly with it meaning 'inexhaustible' in Sanskrit and 'radiance or brilliance' in Irish Gaelic. We have already been complimented on how lovely the name is. Moreover, the name is unique, but not too different and not as tough as mine is.

05/23/2023 07:14:04

My name is Anya and I absolutely LOVE my name! I'm BrIt'sh and people at school always used to use the 'Lasagna' joke and then later on I got the 'Onion' joke (which I never understood because you pronounce my name as 'an-ya' with a short ending 'A' not 'Arr') I love how unique it is and i've only ever met 2 other Anya's in my life - also when I write my name in Japanese kanji I use '暗夜' which means 'Dark Night': my favourite meaning ;D

05/22/2023 00:57:50

i love the name! im glad my parents named me anya because where i live there are not many people with that name. but maybe if i go to russia it will be different. sometimes people likes to pronounce it tanya or anja, but most of the time they're able to say it right

05/11/2023 04:17:04

05/09/2023 02:54:40

Hi, my name is Anja and It's a more or less common name in Serbia. I don't really have any problems with wrong pronunciation in my country because we speak as we write. Pronunciation of the 'j' in our language is actually how you pronounce in English 'yah' without 'ah'. But I have other problem: I get frequently mixed up with Ana (Anna), It's probably because Ana is like one of the most frequently used names in our country and people, while reading my name, often overlook 'j'. However, I really love my name and although I wanted as a child for my name to be Anastasia (ah-nah-stah-SEE-ah), now, as an adult, I adore Anja and It's pretty special to me. There is also an alterations of the name like: Vanja (vahn-yah), Tanja (tahn-yah), Sanja (sahn-yah) and Janja (yahn-yah) - all on the'same principle as you can see; just added a letter in front of Anja. My cousin's and my best friend's names are Vanja, so I am constantly joking how I'm a part of them. This name is getting more and more popular how years go and I think that about 5% of little girls up to ten years in Serbia are named Anja. It's something like a urban, modern name (short names are 'in' now).

04/30/2023 11:25:32

We named our daughter Ariel, born june 2018. It's not a very popular name now so hopefully it will still be considered unique whne she heads too school. :)

My name is Anya. I'm 23 and live in Germany. It's actually spelled "Anja", but noone in the US ever pronounced it right if I spelled it the right way. Since I used to live in the'states and my boyfriend is american'too, I wanted everybody to pronounce my name right, so I chanced the'spelling to "Anya". It'sounds a little more like the real thing now, even'though I don't think americans will ever pronounce it the complete right way ;) I used to hate my name'since only germans could ever pronounce it right, but as It's getting more popular in the US, I start to think It's ok...

My daughter's first full name is Anya Mae. She is outgoing and has a zest for life at the tender age of 3. She is very loveable and sensitive.

03/13/2023 04:54:56

Pronunciation: A ('ah' as 'a' in the word "father") N ('n' as 'n' in the word "no") Y ('y' as 'y' in the word "yes") A ('ah' as 'a' in the word "father"). 'Anya' is the diminutive form of the name 'Anyanwu'. Anyanwu' is the name of Octavia E. Butler's protagonist in the book WildSeed [et seq]. The name means 'sun' or 'sunlight' in the African Igbo dialect. An observable up-swing in the 'Anya' appellation occurred following the 2009 release of the Fox animated feature 'Anastasia', as it had been used as a slangy-diminution of the name 'Anastasia' in the'story-line. One need only inquire if 'Anya' "is short for" Anyanwu to discount WildSeed as inspiration for name'selection.

03/12/2023 09:48:46

I'm calling my baby Anya, pronounced AN YA, i like it as my name is russian also NATASHA, My russian name never caused me any problems, Im originally from Liverpool UK

02/17/2023 08:07:34

My name is Anya aswell. I tend to be called Onion, and can be teased. But It's nice to feel independant. Because you have a special name that if you enjoy, Othe's should Enjoy too. My name is originally spell "Anja" But I spell it Anya. I'may Change the'spelling to Aniyah.

02/13/2023 15:39:56

My best friends name is Ania. It is pronounced the'same way as Anya, so everyone spells it A-n-y-a. It gets on my nerves! She'says that her mom wasn't thinking when she named her, so that's why It'seems like It's spelled wrong!

02/08/2023 21:38:12

I plan on changing my daughter's name from Niah to Aanya. It is a more balanced name. The description of Aanya is The name of Aanya creates a happy, versatile, and expressive nature, with good business judgment and a fine sense of responsibility, which should enable you to establish congenial relationships in positions of trust where you are dealing with the public. Aanya gives you a clever, quick mind, with the ability to accomplish a great deal in a short period of time, although it is not easy for you to systematize your efforts. This name gives you the desire to entertain and to meet and mix with people of refinement and culture. that would

02/04/2023 20:56:50

We named our daughter Anya. I'met a girl in college with the name and loved it. She was Polish and pronounced it AHN-ya. So that is how we have always said it. The whole onion thing never occurred to us. We call her annie as a nickname. I still love the name and she is the only Anya we know.

01/29/2023 18:00:10

My name's Anya and I love it! It's unique and not a common (yawn!) name. I get compliments on my name all the time.

01/27/2023 01:38:28

01/26/2023 13:00:14

I spell my daughter's name with a 'j' - Anja. I'm of German descent so I spell it in the German way plus the first place I heard the name was in 9th grade German class. :) I was originally going to call her Anastazia and use Anja for short but we decided to go with the'shorter name'since that was what we were going to use daily anyway. She usually gets her name pronounced 'Ann-jah' but she's quick to correct them. She's only met one other female named Anya, they had a great time discussing whose name was spelled correctly and whose wasn't.

01/25/2023 03:30:02

i love the name anya!!!

01/21/2023 13:41:06

My name is Anya also. However, I have a different pronounciation spin to it that has added even more headache when growing up. My parents are Cuban where the Y is pronounced like a J so in MY case, It's actually "Ann-ja". Try explaining that to the world your whole life, in school and now professionally!! I thought of legally changing the'spelling for decades until I'met a handful of othe's who spelled it Anja but ALL pronounced theirs "Onya" on "Annya" anyway. In the end, it became such a big mess that i've kept my name just like mom and dad gave it to me and have simply perfected my pheonetic explanations to othe's.

01/18/2023 15:09:06

My name is Anya in Ukrainian but in US everyone calls me Anna "Enna" works for me I actually really like my name cuz you can change the pronunciation what ever way you like it :) fun

01/15/2023 07:30:28

My name is Anya, and I absolutely love my name because it is unusual and lots of people think it is different. I am an 11 Year old girl. People make fun of my name and say ?Lasagna? but I don't really care because I am my own person and I should be proud of myself!! ??

01/11/2023 18:34:26

My full first name is CASTANYA, and I have been known as Anya my whole life (one of the first to be named this here is the'states). It IS beautiful, it IS unique, and I DO love it - but it makes you find character down in you. The jokes, oh my gosh!!! There's a fly on-ya, is that'something on-ya, Anya?, getch in-ya don't get any on-ya, Anya...yeesh. And no one hears it right, no one spells it right, especially elderly people. I have met people from Russia and to them it is like "Jane" - no big deal and they have a lot of cute nicknames for it. The worst part is customer'service ANYWHERE! But I wouldn't change it, my father chose it for me, and it fits like a glove!

01/04/2023 17:00:00

i have so say that i do appreciate my name now more than when i was younger BUT, im still not fond of it. i get the whole, onion thing and it really bothe's me. people dont pronounce it right, EVER and its such a short simple name, Anya.

12/29/2022 00:32:12

I was christened/named Anne but I'm thinking of formally changing to Anya (I already use It'sometimes). My father was Russian and I have a Russian surname which i've had to help people pronounce all my life (I'm in my 50's). If need be I do the'same with Anya:)

12/24/2022 12:05:30

My daughter's name is Anya. My wife and I did lot of research before settling on Anya. Both of us love this name and we hope Anya would feel the'same when she is old enough to understand its meaning. Anya means inexhaustible in Sanskrit and graceful in Russian. We have found two of our friends who know someone named Anya.

12/23/2022 13:45:22

HI'my name is ANYA. My mom said that my dad got it from the book he's reading when I was born. I was born 1996. Thru the years, people keep on asking if my real name is Tanya. Some pronounce or spell it as "Enya", "Onya" and recently at my new job as "Anja". Such a simple name, but people make it complicated.

12/07/2022 11:17:32

my name is actually Anya people, tend to say it is a beautiful name then I get the people who say "onion",I absolutely hate that. My mom saw a movie called Anastasia,which later turned out to be a Disney movie, thats how I got my name. Actually my name is Princess Anya,my mom was tripping I

11/23/2022 10:12:06

I named my daughter Anya and I am so glad I did. It is a beautiful and different sounding name. Sometimes people pronounce it wrong but as she gets older'she will definately correct them.

11/19/2022 19:12:38

My name is Anya, highly recommended and very unique. No one will mistake your baby for anyone else. Love it

11/12/2022 21:09:48

My name is Anya. Most boys call me Onion, although I can see the reason to it, I would change the pronunciation to avoid that. I would change the pronunciation to An-HI-Ah. Good luck with the baby! :)

11/06/2022 23:30:32

haha stumbled on this website by accident. i've often been called Ana or Ayanna. And people jokingly call me Anya. Despite the initial mispronunciation, It's a unique name- something you don't often see.

11/04/2022 05:40:40

this is an awsome name and my girlfriends name is spelled Aaliyah.

10/23/2022 06:50:32

The first word I learnt when I was in South Africa was DAGGA. it is suppossed to be a kind of marijuana, the one that rastafaris rather'smoke. Back in Argentina I called my dog Dagga, which turned to Daja when spelt the'spanish way. I didn't know it was a real name and I think it is very beautiful.

10/22/2022 14:23:04

10/17/2022 09:11:16

My name is anya and people always say it WRONG.They say anya as in arn and its ANya like an apple.

10/05/2022 04:28:28

This is my daughters name. We love it and so does she. She'll turn three on the 9th of January. We've had pretty good luck with people pronouncing it. Maybe its because, as parents, we're always having to call for her while chasing her around the mall and church and...well...everywhere!!

09/22/2022 16:07:12

Ania is a very common Polish name. I'm 40. People mispronounced my name as 'Ah-knee-ah' frequently and I always had to correct them. I used to say 'like Tania, without the 'T', but now knowing what tania means in Polish, I can't use that name to help them pronounce mine anymore. Just repeat after me...'Ania!'

09/14/2022 05:55:28

My name is Anya but my mom spelled it Aanya instead. Im 19 and I like my name now but all through middle school and high school I hated it. I hated it because kids would always call me onion or dumb boys would say"hey can I get ON-Ya?" And it always got on my nerves. Another very annoying thing is that you have to introduce yourself twice to everyone becuase the first time you say "Aanya" they always say "oh Tanya!" and I have to correct them. Over the phone people just assume I said Tanya. It gets very old, very fast. I get a lot of compliments from older adults too. Overall, Its just an Ok name.

09/13/2022 11:06:56

My name is Anya in Russia this name is a short name for Anna. Pronounced like Ah-ni-ya. It's a common shortening so you may adress Anya easily to any Anna you meet. The meaning is the'same as Anna - grace. Came from jewish.

09/11/2022 20:19:20

My name is Anya and like everyone else has said it is always pronounced wrong, spelled wrong (even when it is already spelled for them), or when I was little called "Onion" which I don't get as I lived in California. I have met one other "Anya" and one "Ania." Even with all the problems with the name I still love it and it always gets some kind of compliment.

09/10/2022 10:31:30

there was a little girl who died of cancer, and her name was lila. i am naming my daughter lila in honor of that tough little cookie! love ya, Lila!

08/31/2022 17:30:36

I named my daughter Anya (she was born Nov 2019) because I wanted to honor my Russian heritage and choose a name that was different...but not TOO different. I think It's beautiful and I love it more every day. I hope my daughter likes it as she gets older, but I have no problem calling her Anna or Annie if she prefers that.

06/30/2022 17:43:12

06/26/2022 10:19:30

My name is Anya Clare - I'm 27 years old. I absolutely love the uniqueness of my name! Most people I'meet make comments about how much they love the'sound of it. I highly recommend naming your baby girl "Anya!!!"

04/16/2022 03:16:30

It's my favourite girl's name. My bf and I have picked it in case we have a daughter'someday. The name Anna/Anne is very important in my family, so I like that It's a unique twist on an important family name. I like how timeless and unique it is. It's one of those names you don't hear much, but It's not made up or stupid/weird. I also like that it honours my bf's heritage (he's Indian), and mine (I'm Irish). All round, perfect name in my opinion. :)

My name is Anya but my parents spelled it Anja instead. I rarely have anyone pronounce it right the first time. I have had prounce It'seceral different ways including An-ya(with a soft A as in apple) Anjie and most commonly On-Ja(with a J sound) It gets old really fast having to correct people all the time. I am in middleschool and I often get teased when kids call me onion, lasagna, and omlette. But overall I do like my name and people that know me do pronounce it right. I have also gotten many compliments on it and I am glad my parents went with such a unique name and such a unique way to spell it.

Hi! My name is Anya, and I'm from Russia. I never liked my name as a child, because It's very common in Russia, but I did start to appreciate it a lot more since I'moved to the US. However, because my legal name is Anna, I do have a lot of explaining to do. Anya is one of many derivatives of Anna, othe's include Annushka, Anka/An'ka, Anechka, Anyuta(my favorite). Somehow I'managed to avoid being called "onion" as a child. It never even occurred to me until recently, when my brother-in-law started teaching my little nephew to call me "Auntie Onion" (I kind of love it :)

My name is Anja (yes with "j"). Its a very common name here in Germany but since I wanna live in the US one day I am glad I am going to have rare name then ;). I love unique names and always wanted to have one.

Ditto on being called onion and lasagna, etc. I grew up in Nashville,TN (born 1983) and Anya with a southern twang is not all that pretty. When I was very little I used to id myself to people as a variety of other names. Usually names of other girls I knew. Now that I am an adult I appreciate it more. It would be easy enough for a child who is having a tough time being teased to go be Annie or Anna. Then when'they get older they can use Anya if they choose.

My name is Anya-anwu and i always got teased growing up and had to constantly correct people on the pronouciation. my name is pronounced AN-YAA-WU. By the time grade 4 came along, one teacher'said she would call me ANYA for short and that was it. I was then known as ANYA until I hit 18 when I legally changed my first name to my middle name. I took the meaning from ANYA-ANWU (the'setting sun) and used SUNSET as my middle name. It was a struggle growing up and always having to correct people and stand there helping them through the pronounciation for what felt like ever. I now realize the importance of having a powerful and unique name and have since launched a business using the name I was born with. The bottom line is most people even with the most seemingly simple names still have to correct othe's on how It'should sound. So be happy with the name you were given, it is who you are
