Chania is a respelling of the Hebrew name Chanya, meaning "grace of the lord," and the Arabic name Hania, meaning "a place of rest" and "to be happy." Overflowing with good vibes, it'll wrap baby up in a warm hug and remind them to stay in the moment. There seem to be plenty of Chanyas in the film industry, such as British director Chanya Button and actress Chanya McClory of the super creepy film The One Hundred. Perhaps baby will make their happy place the movie theatre!
