Celebrity baby name: Satyana

Actors Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof welcomed their first child, a baby girl, several weeks ago.

They named their daughter Satyana.

Here’s how the Satyana Institute defines the name:

The name satyana comes from two Sanskrit roots: sat, which means truth or being, and also refers to action aligned or suffused with spirit; and yana, which means vehicle. So “satyana” means a vehicle for action infused with the grace of spirit.

What do you think of the name?

  1. As far as celeb baby names go, it’s not bad. It kinda reminds me of Satan though. Not exactly a good connotation.

  2. I too immediately thought of “Satan” when I saw the name. And as most Americans are unfamiliar with Sanskrit, I imagine that will be the usual reaction to the name.

  3. Doesn’t seem to go very well with the surnam, to me but hey, that’s their problem. I don’t mind Satyna. It sounds pretty and reminds me of satin before satan! My goodness. The vowel sounds are different for Satyana/Satan anyway. So appearance be hanged, I like Satyana. (I know a few from my old area too, so that may be why, it’s familar to me).

  4. My daughter’s name is Satyana also. It is a very unique name and everyone that hears it loves it. My husband found this name on an indian website. Satya means truth, Satyana is a version on Satya :-)
