Annelies (pronounced ANNA-LEASE) is a German/Dutch variant of Anneliese (ANNA-lisa). They derive from names Anna – from Hannah, meaning ‘Grace’, and Liese – from Elizabeth, meaning ‘Pledged to God’.

Anne Franks full name was Annelies Marie Frank, she was a Jewish German during the Holocaust. Anne wrote a diary detailing her years in hiding during the war, later published under the name ‘The Diary of a Young Girl’ and ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’.

Annelies reminds me of names Belladonna, Pennilyn and Elisheva.
