Meaning:Great Britain; Fairy queen
Brittanya is a variant spelling of Britannia, the Latin name for Great Britain. Deriving from the Brittonic name Pritanī, Britannia was also the name of the goddess that personified Roman Britain, depicted with a spear, shield, and helmet. Today, Britannia is used as a poetic way to refer to Great Britain, for example in the country’s national anthem, Rule Britannia. Brittanya is a creative spelling that incorporates the Russian name Tanya, meaning “fairy queen,” to make this unusual name even more striking.
