Surname meaning for Dana

Origin unidentified. There has been much speculation about the origins of this famous American family name. The most plausible theory is that it is a Huguenot name, a variant of D’Aunay, from any of several places in France called Aunay. However, the name acquired an Irish flavor, being associated, probably erroneously, with a Gaelic forename likewise spelled Dana. Hungarian: from a pet form of the personal name Dániel (see Daniel). Czech and Slovak (Dana); also Polish: from the personal name Daniel, or perhaps from a short form of any of the various Old Slavic compound personal names formed with -dan, for example Bogdan.
