Hannah derives from the original Hebrew name Channah, meaning ‘Grace’ or ‘Favour’. This name is also a palindrome, as it reads the same both backward and forward.
Hannah is best known for being a character in the old testament of the Bible who was barren until fervent prayer paid off, and she was blessed with a son, Samuel.
The name Hannah is also the foundation of many other names, these include Anna and Anne, Annabel, Anita, Nancy, Anje and Jana.
A contemporary and naturalist alternative for Hannah could be Henna. With its roots in the plant world and popular body art association, it’s a real modernists gem.
