Hannah was the name of the grandmother of Jesus Christ, the mother of Mary. It was actually her that had the immaculate conception, the conception of Mary free from original sin. Hannah's name is often Anglicized as St. Anne, but the name Anne in Hebrew is Hannah. Hannah was also the name of the only prophetess in the New Testament. She was very old, 84.
A good friend of mine, her name is Hannah. She's, let me see, 38.
Anyway, Hannah is one of the oldest names there is. It appears in the Old Testament. In some ancient Hebrew texts, the name of Eve, which in Hebrew is Ava, appears as Ana, which is a version of the name Hannah. That means in the Abrahamic religions, it's quite possible that the very first woman may have been named Hannah. That's because the letter A in Hebrew is actually a consonant that represents the glottal stop in the name Ana, the glottal stop being the sound you make when you say "uh oh" before both the "uh" and the "oh." On the scale of Hebrew consonants, the A (aleph) is the closest consonant to the letter H (he), and these consonants anciently were often inverted, which is how the name Hannah and Ana are actually the same name.
