"My name is Roxana. My mother was reading Cyrano de Bergerac when she was pregnant and became enamored with the name, but changed it from Roxanne to Roxana because it sounded better with the middle name she had already chosen.

"This is my name - my family is Eastern European, so I pronounce it rok-sah-nah. People often spell it incorrectly; even worse, a lot of people (whom I assume are just too lazy to actually listen when I introduce myself) just say Roxanne. However, most people tell me I have a lovely name nonetheless." Jan. 17, 2006:

"I am English and have called my baby daughter Roxana. I pronounce it as roxahna but many people call her Roxanne or Roxanna which is a bit annoying. I like this name as it is feminine but strong and it is also a very old name as it was the name of Alexander the greats wife." Mar. 21, 2014:

"This is my name...and I'm close to 60 years old. My parents just liked it, I guess. It is invariably mispronounced as "Roxanne" even when I have just said it correctly. Makes me wonder how Princess Diana managed to keep from being called "Diane". I had a professor from Persia in university who told me the name was Persian (which I knew) and that it was pronounced "Rosh ah nah" accent on the last syllable. I have never met another Roxana...one or two Roxannes though." Jan. 31, 2007:
