Origin:Irish
Meaning:ardent; little fire
Ena is a girl’s name of Irish origin. This name stems from the Irish Gaelic name Eithne, which is sometimes Anglicized as Enya, meaning “ardent” and “little fire”. It is also thought to be a shortened version of the Greek name Eirene, meaning “peace”. Both the Irish and Greek origins have a major theme in common—they are both popular saint names! Could this promise an angelic future for your little one? We can’t guarantee that, but we can vouch for the chic snappiness of Ena as a given name. It keeps things short, sweet, and modern while still paying homage to its origins.
