Reply to: The Name Chanin?? by JonesieMe
The name Chanin is a Jewish female name with variants Chanina and Chanine. The meaning i don't know for sure. That's why my subject title asks for help. Miss Claire and Andy know a lot about Hebrew names.

What i did find is this:

Hanna

1-English, 2-Scottish, 3-Irish
variations: Chanin, Haneson, Hanin, Hanis, Hannan, Hannah, Hannay, Hannon, Hanson

1-From the medieval feminine name Hannah or Anna which is of Hebrew origin, meaning 'He (God) has favored me (with a child).'
2-A habitation name for an unidentified place.
3-Anglicized form of the Gaelic word O'hAnnaigh, 'descendant of Annach.' The given name Annach meaning 'antiquity' (Hanks & Hodges, p.238) or 'transgression or immortality.' (Chester & Robb, p.234)

this is taken from the following website:

(search for: Chanin)

For the meaning of Hanna or Anna, see the hyperlinks.
