My friend has just called her new baby girl Hana. They live in Japan and over there it means flower/blossom.
My sisters name is Hana. I didn't expect this name to be on the list. I am very surprised.
My name is Hanako (flower child/blossom child in Japanese) and because I live in Australia, I have decided to shorten my name to Hana or Hannah, but my mother pronounced Hana with the a's making a short u sound (eg. umbrella), which is the proper way to pronounce Hanako. However in Australia, everyone pronounces Hana and Hannah the'same So maybe I will go with Hannah? I still love the name Hanako and Hana, since Hana still means blossom or flower.
