Meaning:He (God) has favored me
Chana is a girl's name of Hebrew origin that means "he has favored me." This name can also mean "grace," and is a variant of Hannah. In the Jewish Bible and the Christian Old Testament, Hannah was the mother of the prophet Samuel, making this name ideal for any parent who wants to share tradition and their faith with baby. It's also perfect if you want to give baby a classic virtue name that's a bit more subtle than choosing Grace.
