Deanna is a girl’s name with English origins that dates back to at least the 19th century, offering a traditional and classic feel to the moniker. It is related to the name Dean which means “valley,” evoking images of rolling hills and glistening waters. Deanna rose in popularity during the 1930s and eventually peaked in 1969 on the baby name charts. Since then, the name has declined and perhaps overshadowed by the more well-known Diana. As a variation of Diana, Deanna has the beautiful definition of “divine” or “goddess,” stemming from the Latin dia. Considering the fame of the Princess of Wales in the 1990s, it’s not too much of a shock this name has been a fan favorite. If you’re looking for an age-old name that differs from more modern norms, Deanna is a fitting choice.
