Susanna is a girl's name of Hebrew origin. Meaning "lily," this name is an under-the-radar way to give baby a floral name that's less on the nose than Rose or Daisy while still being every bit as lovely as your little girl. You can also spell this name Susannah or Shoshana, or opt for the European versions of Sanna or Sanne. This name appears in the New Testament of the Christian Bible in the books of Daniel and Luke, and comes from the Egyptian word for "lotus flower," shoshen, as well as the Arabic word for "lily," sausan.
