Anna comes from the biblical Hannah (Channah in the Bible) and spent many, many years in the top 25. It originally peaked at number two in 1880, and since then has gone down but remained popular, with a more recent peak of 19 in 2001. It fell below the simpler Ann in the mid-twentieth century, but has now reclaimed its spot as the most popular of the Ann/Anne/Anna set. Even though it’s slipped a little, it still fits in with today’s trend of classic and strong but feminine names, so don’t expect it to take any sort of major dive. Anna’s not just well loved in America -- it’s popular in almost every European and/or English-speaking country, and saints and royals have donned the name for centuries. Just about every language has its own variations too, from the French Anais to the Russian Anya.
Form of Channah (see HANNAH) used in the Greek and Latin Old Testament. Many later Old Testament translations, including the English, use the Hannah spelling. The name appears briefly in the New Testament belonging to a prophetess who recognized Jesus as the Messiah. It was a popular name in the Byzantine Empire from an early date, and in the Middle Ages it became common among Western Christians due to veneration of Saint Anna (usually known as Saint Anne in English), the name traditionally assigned to the mother of the Virgin Mary. In the English-speaking world, this form came into general use in the 18th century, joining Ann and Anne. The name was borne by several Russian royals, including an 18th-century empress of Russia. It was also the name of the main character in Leo Tolstoy's novel 'Anna Karenina' (1877), a woman forced to choose between her son and her lover.
