This 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 Elkanah’s wife mentioned in Samuel’s Books. According to the Hebrew Bible, she was the mother of Samuel. Saint Anne was traditionally the name of the mother of the Virgin Mary, which accounts for its extensive use and popularity among Christians. The name has also been used for numerous saints and queens. The mid-7th century King Anna of East Anglia was one such male Anna. Anna is in extensive use in countries across the world as are its variants Anne, initially a French version of the name, though in use in English speaking countries for hundreds of years, and Ann, which was initially the English spelling.
