Ann is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin and is widely accepted as a religious name. Ann is a shortened version of the baby girl name Hannah and means “grace” and “God has favored me.” These meanings are derived from the old testament story of Hannah, the woman who prayed faithfully to God for a baby and was rewarded with a son named Samuel. Ann is a timeless and everlasting baby name and countless fictional characters and great historical figures have carried this title throughout centuries. Although once very popular, Ann is not a common choice of parents these days, which makes it perfect for future parents on the hunt for a rare gem.
