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
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
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)
