Meaning:dawn; bright
With Persian origins, Roxanna is a girl’s name meaning “dawn” or “bright.” This ancient name has been around since the times of Alexander the Great. Spelled Roxana, this was the name of the leader's wife who wed him during his conquest of Asia around the year 327. In terms of popularity, Roxanna has had an up-and-down relationship with those based in the United States. Though most popular in 1955 and 1988 when she nearly made the top 1,000, Roxanna has never been a permanent fixture with the American public. Perhaps it’s time to kickstart the Roxanna revolution with your bright-as-the-sun little one.
