Anais is a girl’s name of Hebrew, Latin, and Persian origins and has been especially popular in France since 1980, possibly due to the release of the beloved perfume “Anaïs Anaïs”. The title Anais has several meanings across different languages, including “merciful”, “gracious”, and “holy”. This lyrical moniker may also originate from the Persian goddess of fertility and healing, Anahita. Musician Noel Gallagher famously named his daughter Anaïs, inspired by the legendary novelist and diarist Anais Nin. While Anais is not currently trending in the US, this only means it will be a beautiful and unique name for an extraordinary person! With a name like this, baby Anais will undoubtedly be empowered to approach every situation with grace.
