- A French alternative for Anne. It is a strong name for a girl, yet at the same time still very feminine.
- a cute, unique French name that would sound adorable on a little girl and chic as an adult.
- I just wanted to say that Anouk probably isn't a French name. I do know, however, than it is a Native American name of some sort.. means "polar
bear". Which is why I like it. Not only is it beautiful sounding, but I love polar bears, so the name's cool for me that way...
Anouk is a French diminutive of the name Anna. Be wary of any name that claims to be "Native American"-- there are many books out there that claim names are "Native American" or "American Indian" in origin, yet are completely not. If a book doesn't at least give a language where the name comes from, it is most likely not accurate.
