I'm afraid you, the author's of this website, are completely wrong about the origin of the name Riana.
It's old Irish Gaelic language.
I'm Irish myself and have known the origin of my name since I was a child. When I came across this link I googled further, to see if any other websites had it wrong. This is the only site (out of countless) claiming the name isn't of Gaelic origin.
It does make me wonder how many other names you have gotten wrong....
Out of curiosity, where did you get your information from?
I don't understand this description. NB has no problem with appropriating other names, but suddenly they care about authenticity here? Just confused...
