Saana, a fell in Finland, is a major influence on this name's popularity.
In the popular song "Haltin häät" (the Halti Wedding), first performed by Taiska in 1976, Saana is a groom who is frozen by wizards and turns into a fell, along with his bride Malla. Another Finnish song, "Kilpisjärven mahtava Saana" (the mighty Saana of Kilpisjärvi) by Usko Kemppi, also tells about the fell. [noted -ed]
