Popularity: this week.

Diana, the tragic British princess, inspired many fashions, but strangely, not one for her name. The classic and lovely moon-goddess name Diana hovered for years around Number 100, though now it's dipped below Number 200, its lowest point since the late 1930s, but for us, Diana is a gorgeous and still-underused choice.

Diana is the Latin name for the Roman goddess associated with the moon and virginity, hunting, and the protector of wild animals, represented in myth as both beautiful and chaste.

Two of her most prominent bearers today are singers Diana (born Diane) Ross and Krall. Fictional Dianas appear in All's Well That Ends Well, Jane Eyre and Anne of Green Gables.
