This is my grandmother's name, but it's not a shortened form. It's just Oana. Not Ioana. I like it, but in an Anglophone context it is always mispronounced (Oh-ah-na, Oh-anna) and many people think it sounds very strange.

It really doesn't come from Ioana. Both "Oana" and "Ioana" are derived from "Ana", and basically have similar meaning. They all mean something in the vicinity of "God was merciful". And the best way to pronounce it is like "wanna".
