The name Dana in Arabic, means the largest roundest and most expensive pearl that pearl divers could catch. In Circasian, Dana means the finest silk.

As a follow-up comment on the above, Dana does not mean "baby cow" in Turkish. Baby cow called "D'an" from the Arabic is not spelt with a "D" but rather with the letter "Thad" in Arabic.

My name is Dana also! I was told (by my mother) that I was named after Dana Andrews (a movie star from the 40's & 50's). My mom told me she thought the name was "masculine". She also told me that Dana means arbiter or peace-maker...which I suppose correlates to the whole judge notion too.

The DANA is a self-propelled gun that was devised and made by the nation formerly known as Czechoslovakia. It was the first 152 mm self propelled wheeled armament gun in service. It started being used around the 1970s. At present it is used by the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Libya.

Wheeled gun vehicles like these are advantageous as they are relatively cheap and require less maintenance, and provide greater efficiency.

The operational team required for the DANA constitutes the driver, the general sitting in the front, the gunman and loader on the left, and the ammunition handler on the right.

Dana in Sanskrit means the act of being generous or giving. In the religion of Buddhism, it also means the process of acquiring the habit of being generous.
