Pretty much Anna with a h at the beginning

Griffin Says:


I like it more than Hannah.

GenEric Says:


Nice to see it has some history behind it, is it relatively common in the Scandinavian region?

Lil25 Says:


Hanna is the Scandinavian spelling. My husbands family is mostly from Norway, and my family is from Sweden, and we both have several family members with this name and spelling. While Hannah is classic and beautiful, Hanna is more modern and I love the simplicity, especially when paired with a longer last name. Of course, if you met our daughter, you'd see another reason we love it so much!
