Ana is a girl’s name of Spanish origin and is a derivation of other baby girl names like Anne and Hannah, which come from Hebrew roots. Ana means “favored grace” in reference to the blessings God bestowed on Hannah in the Old Testament. It’s said Hannah longed for a child and, after faithful prayer, was honored with a son, the prophet Samuel. Hannah’s significance has transcended centuries, passing onto Ana and her many sister names to become a timeless and classic moniker. Ana’s history makes it perfect for parents looking for a name that’s always in fashion and not beholden to the latest trends.
