This isn't short form of Polish "Bogdana". We don't use that name.

I think this is a very nice name, delicate but not weak. To me personally, I find this name too feminine for a boy.

It's not a Polish name at all. There's "Dania" which is the diminutive form for "Danuta" but Dana and Dania are quite distinct and not at all the interchangeable.

I really hate this name for a guy.

I was ALMOST named Dana (Dana For A Day, my mom always says) and I wish I had been. Instead, I got stuck with Megan, which is overly popular and I hate it, a lot. I'd much rather be named Dana, it's very pretty and I don't know anybody who goes by it.

Dana Wynter (pronounced DAH-na), born Dagmar Winter, is a German-born, British-raised U.S. actress.

I like this name a lot pronounced as DAH-nah, it is like an alternative to the overused Donna. I think I will name a book character this. I don't like it pronounced DAY-na, that to me is a last name (Any one else remember the Dana Girls Mysteries?)
