Comments for AZUCENA:

I am fairly certain that this is from the Arabic and is therefore a cognate of Hebrew "Shoshanah" and therefore of English "Susan."

The second pronunciation should be ah-thoo-THE-nah (i.e., both the z and the c should be pronounced alike).

The name occurs in Verdi's opera "Il Trovatore" (based on a Spanish original) in which it is pronounced in the Italian manner as "ahd-zoo-CHE-na."

This name is actually from the Philippines and is pronounced just as it is spelled. This is my boyfriend's mother's name.

This is not a Filipino name but Spanish, and Arabic in origin, as said previously. It means lily and Susan or Susana share the same origin.

It's a very pretty name. I first came across it in the fantastic novel "Law of Love" by Laura Esquivel.

I have a friend named Azucena. She is a forty-something, Maya Indian woman from Guatemala. For short she is called "AzĂș" ("AH-soo"), which I find incredibly sweet.
