I just found this name and I love it! It has such a lovely meaning, and I really like the sound. I'm not sure that I'm pronouncing it correctly though. I am saying it eh-TAHN-ah. Does anyone know if that's correct? Is that how you would intuitively pronounce it? Thank you so much!Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

I would say Et-AHN-a, just like you say it. I think it's pretty obvious to say, and it sounds like a great name!Fangirl | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | 18 | Future mummy 😏Dreaming of...

Etana seems to have a couple of origins. Etana was the name of an ancient Sumerian King so although it sounds feminine, it began as a male name. It's a female version of the Hebrew/Israeli name of Etan/Eitan or Ethan. It's also a Swahili name that means "strong". A true multi-cultural choice. I think it's pretty and I would pronounce it as "eh-TAH-nah".All the best,
