What is the correct version? Almost every Pole I know tells me different. I always write Anii.

Well, what does Ania say?
I'd just go with 'Dla Ani' personally...

Ania is convinced it is "dla Anii".

It'd be "dla Anii" if the name were "Ania"!

Anglia > w Anglii (NOT: "Angli")
Gruznia > w Gruznii
etc..

No, it's 'dla Ani' not 'dla Anii'

pl.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ania

That is also my feeling, that it has to be "dla Anii"
Name is Ania by the way (as from Anna)

No, it's 'dla Ani' not 'dla Anii'

pl.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ania

But the, seeing this source :(
I wonder why then between Poles there is such a difference of opinion on this one....

"Anna" would be "dla Anny" though, or am I incorrect as per the paradigm?

Yes, but I call my wife "Ania" even when her name is "Anna" :)
I have to write the dedication in a book correct, that is why I am asking...

Ok, I see.

Well, figure it's all a matter of usage. I'll chalk it up to the sheer vagueries of Polish for us outlandersLOL!!!

It is definitely 'dla Ani', I'm not a linguist but 'double i' has in my opinion something to do with pronunciation. If the cluster of sounds -ia sounds like 'ja', you use -ii - therefore Anglia ('Anglja') - Anglii, Emilia ('Emilja) - Emilii. But with word Ania there's no 'j' sound there, it's more like Ańa, not Anja. If that makes sens ;)

Thus spake our resident expert(-ess)!

I'm hereby satisfied.

You use a single 'i' when you decline indigenous nouns (rodzime), 'ii' for borrowed nouns (zapożyczone). Hence:

Ania - do Ani
Trzebinia - do Trzebini
Pisownia - do Pisowni
Głębia - do Głębi

but:

Unia - do Unii
Dania - do Danii
Partia - Partii
Monarchia - Monarchii
Sympatia - Sympatii

Sorry for writing in this old post but I want to give You an reliable source for this kind of problems.
You can check it in Dictionary of Polish Language (w Słowniku Języka Polskiego).

Ah yes, the old standby indeed:-) Many thanks, natanielcz! Never too "old" for posting pertinent info.
I at least need to review ^^
