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.

Ivana is a common but not so widespread name in the Czech and Slovak Republics.

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. :)

Ivana is the name of London Tipton's dog on the Suite Life of Zack and Cody. The only problem is it makes me think of a dog:(

I think this is a very cute name. It could be shortened to Iva, which is also cute. I think this is a very sweet name for little girls or adults.

Ivana was my grandma's name. We sometimes called her Ivanka. In Italy she was called Giovanna. It's also the first name of my good friend. I like the name, although I wouldn't name myself with it. Especially I dislike it's diminuitive Iva. But Ivana is a short, easy to pronounce, soft soundng name. I like it.
