    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin): habitational name, with fused preposition d(e), for someone from Anizy in Calvados, France, recorded in 1155 in the form Anisie. De Anesi became Danesi. The placename is probably derived from the Gallo-Roman personal name Anitius (of uncertain origin) + the locative suffix -acum.
