im currently pregnant. and ive decided to name my baby, ANIKA.
I'm an Anneke too.
written by Anneke, March 02, 2008
I know that the know that my name is supposed to be pronounced Ah-nee-ka; however, I have always pronounced my name Anne-i-ka. This has caused reference to the Star Wars Character Aniken. LOL!!! So not funny anymore. But I honestly love my name and it is nice to know that there are others out there with the name, it beyond uncommon in this country, still looking for the little license plate with my name on it and the closest that I get is "Anne."

Now I have heard that Anne Frank's nickname was "Anneke" - I don't know if that is true, but I thought that it was pretty cool.

Best of luck to all,

My name is Anika too. I really hate it when people mis propnounce my name but what can you do.
written by Aneka Milward, September 19, 2008
Hi. my name is also Aneka, spelt differently obviously, My father is dutch, my surname is now different due to the lovely institution of marriage. I have also had to explain my name through my life, was never really ok with it, but now i love it! I also got the Starwars jokes, didn't help that I had a best friend called Nobi!CAN YOU IMAGINE!!! i was named after one of my Fathers relatives. i personally don't like my name being shortened. I take a lot of pride in having a unique name.
