Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Aiyana

Aiyana is a newly coined name used primarily in North America. It is widely believed to come from a Native American language (some allege Cherokee) meaning “eternal flower”. However, we are unable to verify these claims. Most likely, the name is an altered spelling of Ayana or Ayanna used among Jamaicans and African-Americans perhaps from one of the African languages meaning “flower, blossom”. In any case, the origin of Aiyana remains obscure and uncertain at best. It’s only been used in the United States in the past couple decades so it’s a pretty modern creation.

All About the Baby Name – Aiyana

Personality

OF THE GIRL NAME AIYANA

Romance is the hallmark of the Six personality. They exude nurturing, loving, and caring energy. Sixes are in love with the idea of love in its idealized form - and with their magnetic personalities, they easily draw people toward them. Like the number Two personality, they seek balance and harmony in their life and the world at large. They are conscientious and service-oriented, and a champion for the underdog. These personalities naturally attract money and are usually surrounded by lovely material objects - but their human relationships are always primary. They thrive in giving back to others rather than being motivated by their own desires. This is when they achieve great things. Sixes are natural teachers, ministers and counselors.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME AIYANA

Aiyana made her debut on the American female naming charts in 1999 and has grown in usage (although it appears to be slipping in more recent years). The name is only given to around 500 baby girls per year at this point, so it remains a relatively underused moniker. The “forever flowering” possible etymology is definitely attractive, if only we could verify its authenticity. It’s a pretty name for any “blossoming” young girl. It’s also a very unique choice – most people have not heard of this name yet. We hadn’t!
