If you like the name Anna, but think it's too common, this is the perfect alternative!

I think this is the original form of Hannah.

My daughters are friends with a girl at their school whose name is Channah. It's always struck me as an interesting name, at once recognizable as a form of Hannah while also retaining a distinctive ethnic/religious flair.

The "ch" sound (as in Bach) at the beginning makes it a challenge for many English speakers, so that they often pronounce it with a H instead of a "ch," but to me, that only adds to the appeal.

Maximum letters! I really like this variation; It's unique, without being meaningless like many kre8iv names, and it's traditional without being old-fashioned.

More commonly spelled Chana in the USA. It first appeared in the US Top 1000 in the mid-1970s, and ranked at #855 in 2011.

Way better than Hannah, in my opinion. Hannah is too overused and plain.

My name is Hannah, and though I dislike my name, I certainly dislike "Channah" more. It sounds like it's made-up and it's choppy.
