Meaning:Title of a monarch; Your Highness
If you’re seeking a gender-neutral name to honor the new ruler of your home, Nana may be the perfect fit. This regal title is popular among the Akyem, Akuapim, and Ashanti peoples of the Akan as a title for a monarch. Much like “Your Highness,” Nana is associated with the utmost respected and influential figures, which baby will undoubtedly achieve. Non-royal people use Nana as a given name in Ghana and may adopt the title if they share the same personal name as a monarch. A title steeped in fortune, responsibility, and admiration will stand to baby as they fearlessly make their mark on the world.
