I've seen this name spelled Shana and Shanna, but in my lifetime I've never met anyone with her name spelled like I do (Shannah).
My name is Shannah. Growing up I've rarely met a person who can remember how to pronounce it (Like HANNAH with an S or SH-anna)I've gotten Shannon, Shawna, Sheena, Shana, but rarely Shannah. However, I have met a few others who spell it like I do, and most everyone thinks it's beautiful once they get it right!
Hi! I'm also a Shannah :) I've had the same experience as those above: many people struggle to pronounce it correctly but those that do are surprised people get it so wrong! I've got Shayna Shania Shawna Shannon Sharna Sharon... I like my name but it did bother me growing up and in work places constantly being called the wrong name! My mother liked the sound of it. I've met one other with the same spelling, and know 2 others spelt differently but pronounced the same.
