Very pretty name, am a bit surprised it isn't used more right now with the popularity of Anna.

I think this name is very elegant and stylish plus it's biblical as well but not too heavy or Jewish like Zilpah, etc.

Wonderful. So soft and lovely. Susie is a cute name for a little girl, too.

I love this name. It's very classy sounding. It's also my name and my great great grandmothers.

Lovely name, isn't it? It's my English name when I'm having an English lesson. So classy.

This is my name! I didn't used to like it, but I do now. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I do think it's prettier than "Susan". Growing up, I never met another Susanna, but I did hear the name fairly often in historical records and 18th-19th century literature. It doesn't sound, to me, like a 17-year old's name, so at school I'm almost exclusively called "Sue". In fifth grade ( I think) I added an "h" to my name, but decided after a while to just accept my given name.

I can't believe that this isn't in the top 1000. It's a gorgeous name. As solid as Susan, but with the added frill of an -anna ending.

The Italian pronunciation is soo-ZAHNN-nah.

This is a beautiful name with a lovely meaning and history, but I don't think I'd use it for a child because of the song Oh Susanna. The poor girl would just get teased too much.

Susanna Wesley was the mother of Charles and John Wesley. She was a Godly mother to 10 children and is often known as the "Mother of Methodism". She and Mother Teresa are two wonderful women of Faith who I admire.

Related name: Sawsan (Arabic) cognate with the Hebrew meaning of lily.

I think this is a lovely, natural name. It might be old-fashioned, but that makes it classic. I don't like Sue or Suze for nicknames though. I would use Sanna or Anna.
-- Cobweb  12/31/2009
This name is not my favourite as it sounds a like a too dragged out version of Suzanne. Even though Suzanne is my name I'm honestly not biased as I dislike it but compared to Susanna I think I prefer it.

The name "Susanna" makes me think of a bright spring day with birds singing. I just really love it! (Susannah too) Wish I'd had a second daughter, so I could use this name.

I love this name! (O Susanna, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee...) :)

This beautiful name reminds me of sunshine. I find it hard to choose between this and Susannah, wavering from week to week! Both are delectable.
The nickname Sukey, coined in the eighteenth century, is so cute.

I think the name of Syzana or Susana, is best explained in Albanian language. SY or SU - eye and ZANA(SANNA) - fairy. That has meaning as Fairy eyes. Albanian language is oldest language in Europe. Lots of names we use we can be explained in Albanian...

In some versions of ancient Hebrew and hindu texts Susanna (Shoshanna) was a powerful child of Lillith (mother of the demons ) she was thought to bring with her great destruction and power. Although Susanna can also derive from the ancient persian town Susa which was told to be the town where white lilies grew hence the meaning 'gracious lily'.
