I'm a bit confused at the moment. I just posted that "Ivana" is my middle name (the name chosen by my grandmother - father's side) and they are Russian. I was told that it is found in Russian (although not popular!) and yet when I looked it up here on this site - Russia is not mentioned at all.

The meaning of this name is "God is gracious". The origin is Hebrew. The name Ivan (m) means the same as the name Jan. It's a Russian form, but I don't think that Ivana is a commonly used name in Russia. Ivana is a female form and means the same as Jana. :)
