Meaning of Hannah
Hannah is an indirect Quranic name for girls. It means loving, kind, sympathetic. The name’s origins come from the ancient Hebrew/Aramaic root H6-N-N, which is probably the same root for the name Yohanan (Hebrew for the Western name John/Johannes, which is the name of Prophet Yahya in the Bible). Interestingly, this root is only used once in the Quran, when speaking of Prophet Yahya/John in Surat Maryam:
[And when the son was born and grew up, he was told,] “O John! Hold fast unto the divine Scripture with [all thy] strength!” – for We granted him wisdom while he was yet a little boy, as well as, by Our grace, [the gift of] compassion and purity; and he was [always] conscious of Us. (Quran 19:12-13)
Some sources say Hannah bint Faqoodha (Saint Anne in the Christian tradition) was the name of the mother of Maryam (Mary), and therefore the grandmother of Prophet Isa/Jesus. This name however is not mentioned in the Quran, Hadith, or the Bible and there are no authentic sources to back this up.
