Sancha is a Spanish name that is variant of Sancia. It derives from the Latin “Sanctus”.

The Italian and Latin version Santina is a favorite of mine. It also has some masculine variations which include the Italian – Santo, and, the Spanish – Santos.

Unfortunately Sancha is also a Mexican slang term for a known mistress in a relationship.

Other names that have similar meanings include Ariana and Olya, meaning ‘Holy’, Asher, which means ‘Happy and Blessed’ and Celia, which means ‘Heavenly’.
