Savannah

Origin: Liberia
gender-female
Region Origin: Western Africa

Savannah, derived from the Spanish word "sabana" and borrowed from the Taino language, means "treeless grassland" or "open plain". The name Savannah is often associated with large grassy plains, such as those found in Africa, Australia, and South America. As a popular female name, it represents natural beauty and abundance. The origin of the name Savannah can be traced back to the South American fossil record, which provides evidence of a well-developed vegetation rich in grass, thought to be equivalent to modern savanna, established by the early Miocene Epoch, about 20 million years ago. Savannas arose as rainfall progressively lessened in the edges of the tropics during the Cenozoic Era, and grasses, the dominant plants of savannas, appeared only about 50 million years ago.
