Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:Follower of Christ, a Christian
Full of faith, Tyana is a girl’s name of Russian origin, meaning “follower of Christ.” A dear little diminutive of the Latin name Christiana, meaning “a Christian,” Tyana might be the name that brings out the believer in baby. Tyana was also the name of a historic town in Cappadocia, Turkey—now called Kemerhisar—hailed throughout the Neo-Hittite period as a hustling, bustling city and recognized today as a remnant of ancient human settlement. If baby’s got an interest in bygone eras, Tyana might be history in the making.
