  1. I thought it was a great name it was my husband mother’s middle name by like this name because it is a redneck name I love my baby girl she so sweet and cute

  2. Anita is a name that I have not heard a lot. I don’t tend to like names that I already know of a lot of people by that same name. I was also thinking that it would be fun to have a little girl with the same initials as me. AMA. Anita Maria with a last name that starts with an A. I am Angela Marie. Plus I have a sister named Maria that recently suffered a miscarriage. So this baby will be a special niece for her! Just a couple of thoughts!?
