Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Diminutives of this would be Shani, Shoshie, (or Shoshi) or Shana.
Shoshana is also a different spelling of this name, not simply a newer version, as the name itself hasn’t changed, only the English spelling.

One of the people I know with this name was named after a relative named Rose.

Shoshannah, also known as Shani, is the name of the female protagonist in my novel. I wanted a name that had a pretty and elegant meaning to balance Shoshannah's vibrant personality. I've been working on my novel for nearly 6 years and she is definitely a Shoshannah and a Shani (meaning scarlet in Hebrew). I can't see my little redhead being known by any other name!

Shoshannah is often associated with either the rose or the lily, and sometimes just with flowers in general. Either way, it's a beautiful name.

I first heard this name in the movie Inglourious Basterds-- Shosanna (yes, different spelling) Dreyfus. It's such a gorgeous name.

I love this name. It would be pretty for a first or middle name. It has a really sweet sound to it. And, I have heard that it means 'rose' in Hebrew, which is my middle name, which is how I first found out about the name.

It sounds like Susannah said by someone with a speech impediment.

My mother's name is Shoshannah, but spelled Shoshana. I love the name, but hate the stereotype that every female American-Jew is named Shoshannah. Jon Stewart has got to stop that joke, it's just really getting old. Anyway, I love the name. And from what I know, it means "rose" in Hebrew.

Shoshannah is a very pretty name. I just might name my daughter this.
