I can only find the male version in my reference books, such as O Corrain & Maguire's Irish Names. The spelling of that name, though, does not have an apostrophe. Instead there is a diacritical mark over the E: Éanna. The name is pronounced "AY-nah", first syllable as in the word "say". According to Irish Names, the original meaning is thought to be "bird-like."
