Alanna, Alanah or Alannah or Alenah is a girl's given name which has disputed origins. It can be derived either from the Old High German word for "precious" or from the Irish language term "a leanbh" or "child", in English. In Gaelic Alanna as itself is the term for "beauty" or "serenity". It's sometimes considered a feminine form of Alan.
Alana is a common female given name coming from the Goidelic/ Hawaiian community meaning fair, beautiful, offering. It also is an Ibo given name which means father land or father's land in Igbo language.
Alana or Elana can also be the female name in an English translation of Elan which in Hebrew means "oak tree".

Alana was at one time reserved for daughters of dads named Alan, but is now much more widespread. Alana is a Celtic baby name: harmony, stone, or noble.
