A beautiful name. I wish more people in the world had the same name as me. It’s very rare to meet someone with the name Anita these days.

Nothing that has to do with my name, but I'm here to say that I'm a Salvadoran American (but Jesebelle [the youngest one], she's a Salvadoran-Honduran American). So could you put these names on the list of names for people in El Salvador. I've also seen many people with the name Anna, Emily, and Ashley in the US (America).
