Nana is the name of the dog in "Peter Pan." It isn't the Japanese name however; it came from "Nanny" because that was the dog's occupation.

I'd have to check on the reference to this name meaning "apple" because I didn't know the kanji for apple could be pronounced that way.

For "na", one can use the first character in Nara (which has a meaning that has something to do with a plant) or a kanji meaning name. For the second kanji, one can either choose one of these 2 kanji or a kanji that basically takes on the reading of the kanji before it (kind of like a ditto).

You can add an "e" (ay) and make the name Nanae.

Nana does not mean apple in Japanese, 'Ringo' does. Nana means seven.

Nana does NOT mean green. Midori means green. Nana, as most have said, means seven.

I'm suprised Nana Kitada hasn't been mentioned. She's a fairly well known singer in Japan, and is a Gothic Lolita fashion icon.

I believe person above me is referring to Nana Kitade, not Kitada.

The word "Nana" in Japanese means "seven" when written with hiragana. It can be spelled using different characters, a whole variety of them meaning many things, but it first and foremost means "seven". It is also a rather popular girls first name or a nickname for girls with names like Nanako or Nanase.
