Meaning & History

Meaning uncertain. The earliest known attestation of this name occurs in a Svan source from the 13th century AD, so it might possibly be of Svan origin. Also compare the Georgian noun ნანა (nana) meaning "mother" as well as "darling child".

Apart from that, there can also easily be cases where this name is a diminutive or variant of Nana 3, which is also of uncertain meaning and origin (though unlikely to be of Kartvelian origin). Also compare the feminine names Anana, Anano, Manana and Nanuli.

A notable bearer of this name is the Georgian actress and singer Nani Bregvadze (b. 1936).
