Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Irish
Meaning:Beloved; Bard
Daviana is a girl’s name of Scottish origin, meaning “beloved.” A graceful reconstruction of Davina, which is a feminine version of the Hebrew moniker David, Daviana is a sweet and subtle allusion to King David, whose God-given gift for composing powerful psalms makes him a prominent figure in the Bible. Daviana can also be derived from the Irish surname Devin, meaning “bard”—a possible nod to the poetic prowess of Israel’s second ruler. A name with as many lyrical allusions as Daviana is a beautiful choice for a babbly baby, encouraging them to be wise with their words and to speak kindly where a little kindness might come in handy.
