Native American: forever flowering, blessed
Hebrew: He answers
Sanskrit/Hindi: innocent" Jan. 5, 2010:

I know it has 2 different meanings but I always say it means innocent because when we looked it up, thats waht came up first. People do say it wrong, which bugs me.

"I love my name because, unlike many of my generation, it actually has a meaning (in two cultures), both of which are nice. My parents chose it because of the Swahili meaning, "beautiful flower" but it's also "innocent" in Hindi.
It's not hard to say when teaching others (it's only 3 syllables people) so when folks get it wrong I'm annoyed. Most of the time it's because they dont try because it's different. Growing up there weren't many of us, but now the name is more popular and I hear it more often. I work in a school that has two!" Sep. 27, 2008:

"My daughter is named Ayanna (uh ya na). I saw the name in ebony magazine in 1971. It was chosen because it was unique and nobody else had the name. Now the name is more common. You still can't buy a keychain with this name. My daughter was not always pleased with the name because everybody got it wrong. She learned to answer to anything that was close. I think that a unique name makes you stand out from the crowd which may or may not be a good thing." Oct. 21, 2014:
"I love my name I pronounce it eye- ya- na. I'm 36 so for many years I had never heard of anyone else with my name. It became more popular in the 90's. Since adolescence many people have mispronounced my name. As a child it annoyed me so I dummed it down for those who have no understanding of phonetics. Since about 12 all of my friends have called me Anna. My grandmother always called me "Ya-Ya" and I'm Yanna to my family and those close to me. I answer to pretty much anything." May. 29, 2014:
"I'm 18 and I pronounce my name I-ahn-na.
Its not a bad name and has a really nice meaning but it's sooooo weird, I don't know anyone else with it and people always pronounce it wrong -_- I changed my name to Kendra last year and ended up changing it back because that name didn't suit me at alllllll. Oh and another thing I don't like is that I can't think of any nice nicknames to go with Ayanna :( I'll probably end up changing my name again." Mar. 24, 2014:
"I'm 15 years old. I used to hate my name because no one could spell it right, and I couldn't find any keychains with my name on it. Haha. But I've come to love my name. YES people pronounce it wrong ALL THE TIME! I pronounce it (Uh-Ya-Na)...but i always get (I-ya-na) or A-ya-na with the Long A sound. My mom saw a painting in Atlanta while she was pregnant with me named "Ayanna's Dream" and she named me after that painting. I love my name now, and I always will. It's beautiful. Like me: A beautiful flower :)" Aug. 11, 2010:
"i dont really like my name. adults never pronounce it right and some times it really gets on my nevers and i just let them call me what ever.and i have never met anyone with the same name as me. and when people say it with an i at the begining makes me want to ask them where the freaking i is cause i'm 13 and still havent seen it. but i do like the fact that not every other person i see has the same name as me :)" May. 8, 2010:
