Meaning:valley or church leader
Deanna is a girl’s name with British origins that dates back to at least the 19th century. Meaning “valley” or “church leader,” Deanna is a great choice if you intend on raising baby within the church. Deanna rose in popularity during the 1930s and eventually peaked in 1969 when it reached 161 on the baby name charts. Since then, the name has been in decline and perhaps overshadowed by the more well-known Diana. Considering the fame of the Princess of Wales in the 1990s, it’s not too much of a shock. If you’re looking for an age-old name that differs from more modern norms, Deanna is a fitting choice.
