Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Meaning:Little Hans; God is gracious
Your little one will always be connected to their faith with the name Hansl. A variation of Hänsel, Hansl is thought to mean “little Hans” and is typically given to boys. Hans is a Germanic form of Johannes, which derives from the Hebrew moniker Yochanan, signifying “God is gracious.” Although spelled differently, Hansl sounds just like the name of the brother in the fairytale Hansel and Gretel. Whether you want baby to learn the wisdom this almost-scary story offers or stay strong in their beliefs, Hansl is definitely one to consider.
