Anni started out as a bot for a friend. "Hey, can you make a bot that reminds us of people's birthdays?" That's where I got the name - it was short for the french Anniversaire. And being thorough, I used my old codebase for Chandler as a jumping off point to build a new framework.
Halfway through, someone asked for a custom profile bot. And, since I had already built out a profile to house the birthdays, I said yes and Anni was born.
