Suzanne

Origin: Netherlands
gender-female
Region Origin: Western Europe

Suzanne is a traditionally feminine name with origins in both French and Hebrew languages, meaning "graceful lily". The name is derived from the French version of the name Susanna, which in turn comes from the Greek name Sousanna, and is ultimately rooted in the Hebrew name Shoshannah. In modern Hebrew, the name also means "rose". The name Suzanne has been popular in English-speaking countries since before the start of the 20th century and is often associated with cultural and biblical relevance. The origin of Suzanne can be traced back to the Hebrew word שׁוֹשָׁן (shoshan), meaning "lily". White lilies grew in the biblical city of Susa in Persia, further adding meaning to the name. In the apocryphal Book of Tobit, Susannah courageously defended herself against wrongful accusation. The name Suzanne has also been famously associated with Leonard Cohen's number one hit and love poem "Suzanne," which became one of the singer-songwriter's best-loved songs.
