It can also be the Spanish form of Joan. My grandparents lived in Puerto Rico for two years and the natives called my granny (whose name is Joan) Juana.

Queen Juana of Castile (1479-1555) was the daughter of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile and a sister of Katherine of Aragon. Known as "Juana la Loca" ("Jane the Mad"), her mental health was often strained by her unrequited love for her unfaithful husband, Philip I of Castile, and by the control of her male relatives over her. Juana may well have been bipolar rather than truly mad.

Juana is a wonderful name. I would name my daughter like this if it wouldn't be too common.
