Name Meaning

Of uncertain origin. From the 18th century it is clearly used as a pet form of Ann ( see Nan ), but it may originally have been a similar formation deriving from the common medieval given name Annis , a vernacular form of Agnes . Nowadays it is an independent name, and was especially popular in America in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.
