Historical origin and etymology
The girl’s name Diana is of the Roman root. It was about the Goddess of the moon and the hunt. Its Greek evaluation is Artemis. Diana was the daughter of the king of all Roman Gods, Jupiter, and the twin sister of Apollo, God of the arts and the sun.
Diana was very popular in Roman civilization; especially among Plebeians. Before the Romans started to be Christian in 380. In Roman mythology, Diana is a holy name that represents the meanings of beauty, skillfulness, protectors, and so on. She is a virgin who swears never to marry. In other words, she is chaste and a protector of childbirth.
This name is originally and more likely to be of the Greek root “Dios” which means “of Zeus”. As mentioned before Zeus is similar to Roman Jupiter. “Of Zeus” means “to divine”. The old word “Divios” which means “sky” would be appropriate too, since Diana was the Goddess of the moon. It came to England by the way of the French word “Dian”.
Until the 1800s, Diana had not come to widespread usage. It became popular after many years passed. This may be because of the reluctance of Christians to name their daughters Diana.
