Gender: F Meaning of Fanya: "from France; free man" Origin of Fanya: Slavic and Russian diminutive of Frances

Fanya might make an exotic and unusual short form for the classic Frances, or could stand as a full name on its own. Definitely classier than Tanya but with the same Eastern European flavor.
