I've come across name books that identify it as originating from Japanese meaning "flower".

The Japanese word for flower is "Hana", not Anna.

I have heard it is of Hebrew or Arabic descent, simply meaning "mother". In the Turkish language, kids address their mothers with "anne".

It would make sense for those children to their mothers 'Anna'. Saint Anna was the Virgin Mary's mother, the Messiah's grandmother.

This name is of Hebrew origin and it means "grace" (Channah, Hannah). The sound, simplicity, meaning, universality, only credits this name as favorable. One of my favorite names.

Derives from Zeus's (olympic God) surname: "ανα" deriving from "ανω" meaning in Greek: "up". This is why in Hebrew is masculine name. In Spanish has only one "n"(Ana).
