This name is common in Serbia. It is biblical name. Related to the name Ana which is a Hebrew name and pronounced Hannah. It means have mercy. And also there is a possibility that Jana comes from names such as Jovana or Mirjana. In Serbia it has 2 pronunciations when you say the name fast or slow. I´m glad that my name is popular in other languages! It is a very beautiful name.

Pronounced YAH-nah in Croatian and Serbian. "YAH" can be long or short. [noted -ed]

I wouldn't say it's a variant of Ana, more likely a form of.
It's definitely not a variant: Ana is pronounced AH-nah, and Jana YAH-nah.
