    Rohana?

    I think it's lovely, but is it a legitimate name? Most baby name sites list Rohana as meaning "sandalwood", and as a variation of Rohan. However, Behind the Name doesn't list Rohana at all, and says Rohan is derived from a Sanskrit word that means ascending. Which is correct?

    I like Rohana and would be more prone to believe the ascending meaning myself.

    Legit name or not, I love it. It's gorgeous. I've never seen it listed as meaning anything other than "sandalwood" but it's still beautiful.

    I've been doing some more looking, and it seems Rohana is the word for ascending for Sanskrit.
