Suzanna ~English or Hebrew meaning Lily. In the apocryphal Book of Tobit Susannah courageously defended herself against wrongful accusation. White lilies grew in the Biblical city of Susa in Persia.
We tried to get pregnant for more than four years. During that long wait we discussed a lot of names. One we kept coming back to was Suzanna. It's musical, beautiful, not common, and yet not weird. We then discovered that it was the perfect way to honor our mothers. My mother's name is Susan, my mother-in-law is named Johanna. Put them together and viola! - Suzanna.
We named our beautiful little girl Suzanna Joy!
