Anne facts for kids
Quick facts for kidsAnne
Anne is sometimes used as a male name in the Netherlands, particularly in the Frisian speaking part (for example, author Anne de Vries). In this incarnation, it is related to Germanic arn-names and means 'eagle'. It has also been used for males in France (Anne de Montmorency) and Scotland (Lord Anne Hamilton).
In the UK Anne was traditionally the Royal spelling and Ann was for commoners. This has largely fallen out of use.
