BtN lists the following cultures and languages in which Anna is used:
English, Italian, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Finnish, Estonian, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, Czech, Slovak, Bulgarian, Icelandic, Catalan, Breton, Biblical.

Anna was also used in Anglo-Saxon times, though the only notable bearer we know of was male: King Anna of East Anglia (d. 953/954):

"Come... you must eat my child." — From a badfic
