Shoshana is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin. This name is a classic of the biblical sort, making at least two appearances in the bible. Names like Susanna, Susan, Sanna, and Zuzana all stem from this true original. Speaking of stems, Shoshana’s floral roots can’t be forgotten—this charming name translates to “lily” or “rose”, making a lovely bouquet for baby. Shoshana might be familiar to movie and TV lovers as the lead in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds and a member of the ensemble cast of HBO’s acclaimed series Girls. This name retains a certain retro-cool while also being a reverent tribute to one’s faith, making it a smart choice for both style and substance.
