European form of Hebrew "lily"; NT Luke 8:3.  The spelling Susannah is used in the Old Testament.

The spelling variant Shusanna occurs occasionally in the 1841 Census of Aberdeenshire [cf. Susan/Shusan]. This spelling may be common in older Scottish records and should be considered when searching indexes. Other spellings occur rarely but should be covered by a Soundex search.

Sanna is a Scandinavian short form.  In Norwegian and Swedish it means "true".
