Its source is Diviana, a Latin name meaning "Goddess."
The name Deeanna ranked 3978th in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
Though this name appears on the 1990 U.S. Census lists, it is used by only a small percentage of the general population.
This was one of the names of the ancient Roman moon goddess, equivalent to the Greek goddess Artemis. She was also goddess of the hunt and of chastity. Like most deities, she was called by several names, including Cynthia and Delia.
The Latinate form of this name, Diana, was borne by the late Princess of Wales. The outpouring of affectionate grief that marked her passing could find further expression in the naming of baby Dianas well into the new century.
