MEANING:
The name derives from the Latin form of the Greek name "Ánna (Ἄννα)” from the Hebrew name “Channâh > Ḥannāh”, meaning “graciousness, he was gracious, showed favor”. Hannah, also occasionally transliterated as Channah or Ḥannāh is the wife of Elkanah mentioned in the Books of Samuel. According to the Hebrew Bible, she was the mother of Samuel.
