Meaning:The sandpiper bird; Lily
Sanny is a girl’s name of British and Hebrew origin. It may refer to the sandpiper bird, a species of beautiful wader birds with brown and white plumage. Alternatively, it could be a shortened form of the Hebrew name Susannah, which means “lily.” In an apocryphal story sometimes included in the Bible’s Book of Daniel, Susannah is a courageous woman who defends herself against wrongful accusations, and prevails. Though Susannah is more commonly shortened to Susie or Sue, Sanny is a more unique option that’s sure to help baby stand out.
