My name is Ayannah and i pronounce it Eye-yahn- ah. Im 20 years old and i absolutely LOVE my name. I love the fact that It's unique and rare and i don't have to worry about 4 other people turning around when someone calls my name. Of course it had been is pronounced all my life but i politely correct people and then move on with my day.

My daughter is named Ayanna (uh ya na). I saw the name in ebony magazine in 1983. It was chosen because it was unique and nobody else had the name. Now the name is more common. You still can't buy a keychain with this name. My daughter was not always pleased with the name because everybody got it wrong. She learned to answer to anything that was close. I think that a unique name makes you stand out from the crowd which may or may not be a good thing.

people always get my name wrong i always see to be correcting people but i love my name i know it means beautiful flower but i think it means lucky i've had a lot of lucky times like at school i found twenty dollars on the ground at school i love my name it brought me alot of good times during the years.i just love the name ayanna because It's my name also my friend has the'same name as me its spelled the'same but we don't have the'same middle and last name i just love my name don't you.

I love my name because, unlike many of my generation, it actually has a meaning (in two cultures), both of which are nice. My parents chose it because of the'swahilI'meaning, "beautiful flower" but It's also "innocent" in Hindi. It's not hard to say when'teaching othe's (It's only 3 syllables people) so when folks get it wrong I'm annoyed. Most of the time It's because they dont try because It's different. Growing up there weren't many of us, but now the name is more popular and I hear it more often. I work in a school that has two!

I love my name I pronounce it eye- ya- na. I'm 36 so for many years I had never heard of anyone else with my name. It became more popular in the 90's. Since adolescence many people have mispronounced my name. As a child it annoyed me so I dummed it down for those who have no understanding of phonetics. Since about 12 all of my friends have called me Anna. My grandmother always called me "Ya-Ya" and I'm Yanna to my family and those close to me. I answer to pretty much anything.

My name is Ayanna and I'm 14. I beli've I am the only Ayanna in my high school. I love the name but so many people have messed it up I just accept it. they tend to say it with an 'I' and not an 'A'.

I'm 18 and I pronounce my name I-ahn-na. Its not a bad name and has a really nice meaning but It's sooooo weird, I don't know anyone else with it and people always pronounce it wrong -_- I changed my name to Kendra last year and ended up changing it back because that name didn't suit me at alllllll. Oh and another thing I don't like is that I can't think of any nice nicknames to go with Ayanna :( I'll probably end up changing my name again.

I'm 15 years old. I used to hate my name because no one could spell it right, and I couldn't find any keychains with my name on it. Haha. But i've come to love my name. YES people pronounce it wrong ALL THE TIME! I pronounce it (Uh-Ya-Na)...but i always get (I-ya-na) or A-ya-na with the Long A sound. My mom saw a painting in Atlanta while she was pregnant with me named "Ayanna's Dream" and she named me after that painting. I love my name now, and I always will. It's beautiful. Like me: A beautiful flower :)

My husband and I are considering this name for our daughter. I found so many pretty meanings in addition to the African meaning. African/Ethiopian/Swahili: beautiful flower, beautiful blossom, (may also mean "hope") Native American: forever flowering, blessed Hebrew: He answers Sanskrit/Hindi: innocent

02/17/2022 20:56:42

Ayanna is my daughter's name...My sister picked it for me. I could be happier with it. Its a beautiful name with a wonderful meaning. I know it has 2 different meanings but I always say it means innocent because when we looked it up, thats waht came up first. People do say it wrong, which bugs me. Come on now people its with an A not an I.
