This surname Anrijs is an extremely rare surname mostly found in Belgium, including variants Anris and Anrys, but the name Anrys is more common than the two. With such rarity, most likely there is only one origin of the Anrijs name, and it is a variant of a more common name. Here are other possible origins I found:

Origin 1. Perhaps it is a variant of surname Andris, also as Andries, found mostly in Northern France and Belgium, which is also a variant of Greek name Andreas. The origin of Andreas you'll find here (http://www.ancestry.com/facts/Andreas-family-history-uk.ashx)

Origin 2. Perhaps it is a variant of surname Arijs, a Latvian name also found in Belgium, or perhaps the the Arijs of Belgium is of different origin. If so, perhaps it is a variant of Aris, mostly found in France but also found in Belgium, perhaps could derive from Latin name Aries, meaning "ram", or perhaps it could derive from Flanders: Arras, found mostly in Belgium. See the origins of name Arras here (http://www.ancestry.com/facts/Arras-family-history.ashx)
