The name Hannah pronounced Han-ah, is a popular name of Hebrew origin; it signifies graciousness and mercy. According to the Jewish scriptures, Channah prayed to the Lord for a son as she was barren and was blessed with a son Samuel who became Israel's most respected prophets. The name thus came to be associated with thanksgivings to the Lord for having favored one with a son. In Europe the name is highly popular in Germany and is believed to have originated from the Irish-Gaelic name Aine which means brilliance. The variants of Hannah are Ann, Annie, Hanna, Anna, Nan and Hanne.

It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Hannah is "favored grace".
Biblical: Mother of the prophet Samuel. Being barren, she asked God to bless her with a child, and her prayer was answered. Hence, the name literally means "God has graced me with a son".

Hannah is a Biblical character. She finds mention in the Books of Samuel. As the story can be only taken at face value, she was supposedly the mother of Samuel. But most scholars of the Bible stress that the text actually spoke of her as the mother of Saul, with it being changed into Samuel by an editor afterwards.

At the beginning of the narrative incident regarding Hannah, she is said to be one of the two wives of Elkhanah. The other wife was called Peninnah. Peninnah gave birth to a son, but Hannah did not. Even after this, Elkhanah harboured a preference for Hannah, which might have been the reason for Peninnah's endless taunts about her not being able to give birth.

After praying to Eli for a child, she got pregnant and raised her child as a nazirite as she had promised Eli in exchange for a child.

My name is also hannah and my whole life ive danced and everyone always told me how graceful I was so now that I see what my name means it really gives me an idea of what I was born to do with my life. When you find the meeting of your name it really puts your lifestyle into perspective for you. Knowing what I do now about my name I'm happy my parents named me what they did. :)
