Anguerny is located 10 kilometres north-west of Caen and 3 kilometres south of Douvres-la-Delivrande. The D79 from Caen passes through the west of the commune and continues to Basly. The D7 from Caen to Douvres-la-Delivrande passes just to the east of the commune. Access to the commune is by the D141 which links the D79 to the D7 passing through the village and the commune. Apart from the village the commune is entirely farmland.
The commune was called successively Aguerne then Aguerny before taking its current name. The parish was under the authority of the Lords of Creully.

In 2009 the commune had 783 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
