Diana is a feminine name with its origins in Latin and Roman mythology. The meaning of the name Diana is "divine, goddesslike," and it is a derivative of Latin "dia" or "diva" meaning "goddess". In mythology, Diana was an ancient Roman deity and daughter of Jupiter who came to be associated with the Greek goddess Artemis. She was noted for her beauty and fleetness and is often depicted as a huntress. The name Diana has been regularly used since the Renaissance and became more common in the English-speaking world following the publication of novels featuring characters named Diana, such as Walter Scott's "Rob Roy" (1817) and George Meredith's "Diana of the Crossways" (1885).
