Kiana is the Hawaiian form of Diana, which comes from the Latin word "divus," which means "divine." In the mid-19th Century, Europeans invaded Hawaii, converted the Hawaiian king to Christianity, and he declared that Hawaiian parents had to start giving their kids European names. There was no D sound in Hawaiian, so they replaced D with K and turned Diana (which is pronounced "dee-AH-na" outside of the English-speaking world) into Kiana (kee-AH-na).

About the Qiana and Quiana spellings: Qiana is a synthetic fabric invented in the 1960s that became a trendy material for men's shirts during the disco era. According to an article in Time magazine, Qiana is "a computerized combination of random letters." So Qiana is simply a homophone and is unrelated to the Hawaiian name.

Is Kiana pronounced like Diana with a K for the Hawaiian version?

The description of this name is a little lacking. Kiana is also the Hawaiian version of Diana, which means heavenly or divine.
