Suzanne is a traditionally feminine name of Hebrew and Greek origins. Popular in French and Dutch homes, this name means “lily” or “lotus,” as well as “to be joyful” or “to be bright.” Known as a popular southern belle just like her other -anne suffix sisters, Suzanne is undoubtedly an attractive choice for baby girl. The name's Hebrew etymology stems from its variant Susannah, a figure who defended herself against a wrongful accusation in the Book of Tobit. Meanwhile, in the biblical city of Susa, Persia, white lilies grew in the surrounding lakes and swamps, adding further meaning to the name's definition. Parents fond of 1960s music classics will also be familiar with Suzanne's imprint on the industry. Leonard Cohen's number one hit and love poem "Suzanne" became one of the singer-songwriter's best-known works, giving baby a name that's both culturally and biblically relevant.
