Much, much better than Hannah. This name is also used on the hurricane name list.

I used to prefer this spelling but now, with a change of opinion, I favour the more frequently used, "Hannah"

Hanna is fine but I can see why the spelling of Hannah is enjoyed more. As a writer, I named one of my characters Hanna and I'm glad I decided to change it to Hannah instead. :P.

Good name. I love Hanna Marin from Pretty Little Liars, she's my favourite character in the show and creates a good association of this name for me. I like it better without the pointless H at the end, also if it's spelled Hannah the name is a palindrome and the kid might be told this throughout her life when she introduces herself, which could be annoying. A good middle name for this name is Eleanor, which is Hanna Marin's middle name.

I had a childhood friend named Hanna and not only did I think the spelling of her name was really cool, but I also loved the pronunciation ("HAHN-na"). It was so fresh and unique from Hannah ("HAN-na") which just sounds whiny to me and reminds me too much of Hannah Montana or banana.

This is my name and growing up I hated it because I thought it was too simple and boring and people always put the H at the end which bothered me. But people always compliment my name and say it's pretty and that they like it. Most other Hannah's and Hanna's I've known are nice, smart, calm people.

This name is used in Belarus. The native spelling is identical to the Ukrainian one.
And I think both languages use it as a form of Anna rather than Hannah, but I'm not sure. [noted -ed]

Hanna Falk Cross is the main character of the comic Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name. He's enthusiastic but obnoxious, more than a bit unstable, and a paranormal investigator with more than a little attitude of a car salesman. He often doesn't see things very realistically at all.

My sister's name is Hanna (pronounced almost HUN-ah), like without the 'h', and I think it's prettier than Hannah. Because Hannah looks like really chunky and bulky, no offense to those called Hannah.

Ok first of all I love it spelled without the H at the end. And I do like it with the H at the end. But my name is HANNA and I like it just the way it is. Very unique, it really is pretty BOTH ways with and without the h.

I personally prefer Hannah, but this is a really pretty name! The reason is, to me Hanna looks incomplete without an extra -h. If I could, I would write the extra -h at the end of Hanna in novels.

This is my best friend's name. I used to jokingly call her "Annah," because it wasn't a palindrome. Our other friend's father always calls her "Hanna Montana," which is a drag.

I love the name Hanna! It's an awesome name. I like it spelled H-A-N-N-A. I don't know why anyone wouldn't love this name! Oh and if you make it a palindrome it's not unique anymore.

I prefer to spell this name with the H at the end. (Plus, when you do it that way, it's a palindrome.)

I agree with the person above me: this spelling looks much better and I like that it's slightly more creative than just plain "Hannah."

Actually, even though I may be veering to the kreeyaytive side, the name looks better without an 'h'. Less. Bulky.

I know a girl named Hanna. But her name is pronounced "HAW-nuh" not "HA-nuh", I really don't like it pronounced that way.

Very pretty name. I like this version better than Hannah. It makes it a little more unique.

I dislike it when people misspell my name (Hannah) as Hanna. But for other people, I sort of like it without the second h.

Well, my biology teacher is called Hanna but she is daughter of Arabs. We pronounce it like this: HA-NA, very simple.

I've seen girls named this around here where I live, so I'm not so sure about it being specifically all of the nationalities listed. I think it's just another way to spell 'Hannah'.

Yes this is an alternative spelling for Hannah but this spelling originated in the countries listed. So it is not typically reserved for exclusive use in those places but originated from them.
