The name Diana is from the Latin and means "The divine one". It has also been a purely female name. It is a very popular name and in different languages has come to mean different things. For instance in French it refers to "the goddess of the moon", in Greek just as in the Latin, it means "divine" and in Italian to "the Goddess of the Moon" albeit a virgin one.

Diana was the name of a goddess in Roman mythology. She was to the Romans what Artemis was to the Greeks. A virgin Goddess, a hunter and one who later became a moon goddess was she. She is depicted mostly with a quiver of arrows and sometimes with a bow.

Even though pagan faiths have been supplanted by Christianity she remains a popular and iconic figure. Her image is the symbol used by many including the German manufacturer of air rifles "Diana". The image of the goddess etched into the metal of the spring chamber shows her throwing away her bow and raising a rifle in its stead.

For me personally, the name Diana, represents hope, pain, fear and repeated tragedy that does nothing to falter the loyalty and unwavering love that is returned far too late. She barely glimpsed it.
