Comments for HOSANNA:

I think that pronouncing Hosanna as the given pronouciation Ho-ZAN-ah is rather unattractive. I prefer Ho-SAHN-ah.

I was really suprised when I learned this was actually a name, because when we went to church when I was a little kid and we sang songs with the phrase "sing Hosanna" in them I always thought it was talking to someone named Hosanna and when I asked my parents who she was they just laughed. I really like this name! I would consider using it. It's so beautiful!

Interesting. I'm just not sure it's a good idea to put "Ho" in a girl's name.

äåùòðà is the Hebrew Script of Hosanna, meaning 'G-d save us.' [noted -ed]

It wasn't actually exclaimed by Jesus, but by the crowd that greeted him in Matthew chapter 21 (the "Triumphal Entry").

The Hebrew word originated as a prayer but by the New Testament times it had become an exclamation of praise. [noted -ed]

If my name was Hosanna, I would be quite annoyed. At school we have to sing hymns and one of them is called 'Hosanna'. Imagine singing that every day with the name of Hosanna?

In Sweden we translate it "Hosianna". There is a famous Swedish Christmas hymn called "Hosianna Davids son" ("Hosanna to the Son of David") and many Swedish children have misunderstood this and asked: "Who is Hosianna Davidsson?"
I've even read about a girl who said "Oh, when I entered church everyone sang for me! They sang 'Oh see, Anna Davidsson!'" :)

I like the pronunciation because I love the nickname Zannie, but (sorry) I hate how it looks. The S in this name seems unattractive to me and really stands out. It's just my opinion though, don't listen to me :P.

Caprice, Lol!

In modern Hebrew, the phrase is Hoshiana, "please save us", and it is sometimes heard in contemporary Messianic music.

I like the sound of Hoshana better, though, as opposed to Hosanna.
