Aness is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that is derived from the personal name Agnes, which itself is derived from the Greek name Hagne, which means pure and holy.

Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Anesss to arrive on North American shores: William Annis, who settled in Virginia in 1639; Thomas Anniss, aged 23, who settled there in 1683; as well as William Arness, who arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1685..
