Shoujo Kakumei Utena
(Revolutionary Girl Utena)
What is significant about Anthy's name?
Himemiya as it's spelled consists of 'princess' (hime) and 'shinto shrine' (miya).
Her given name, like Utena's is the name of a district... though Anthy is in France. (Note that both Anthy's and Utena's names are hybrid -- that is, they have traditional last names, and foreign given names written in katakana.)
