A girl’s name of English origin, Danna is popular throughout Britain, especially in its more common alternate spelling, Dana. A feminine variant of the Hebrew Daniel, Danna means “God is my judge,” making it a great choice for raising baby in faith. Coincidentally, Danna also holds spiritual significance in England’s neighbor across the Irish Sea. In ancient Ireland, Danu was a goddess of the Tuatha dé Danann, one of the earliest peoples to inhabit the island. Danna is thought to be a derivative of Danu. Whether your spiritual beliefs lean more Christian or Pagan, baby Danna’s name will pay homage to the sacred traditions of the Celtic and British Isles.
