The name Sana (incidentially my own name) has 3 distict meanings because usually the sounds of soft 'Dhs', S, and soft 'Th' (as in 'both' but not 'them') in Arabic can only be (sometimes rather erroneously, phonetically speaking) represented in English by the letter 'S'. The name Sana (sounds a cross between Ssanaa and Thanaa) which uses the last phoetic mentioned above, means "The praise of God" or "To praise God". This is not in the cultural sense, but in the religious/theological sense: Muslims begin each of the five daily prayers with a prayer called 'Sana'.

Sana, in Swahili, means "very much" or "abundance". This is where the phrase "asante sana", meaning "thank you very much" comes from.

"Sana" means "healthy" in Esperanto, though I don't believe it's commonly used as a name among speakers.

Sana is originally Islamic.. which means Prayer... it is actually the name of Prayer which Muslims recite while praying. Even though I have a Muslim name I practice a different religion :)

I think this is funny name, because it means 'word' in Finnish.
