If your name is Diana, you are the kind of person that others would call easy-going and laid-back. You are calm and peaceful, and your mission in life is to help bring that calmness and peace to others and to the world as a whole. In that regard, you are a natural diplomat, mediator, and peacemaker. You are able to see all sides of every situation, helping those in conflict to see opposing viewpoints and find a way to work out their differences. You don’t so much seek to be a leader in your own right as the one behind the scenes helping to bring balance to unbalanced and tense situations. As such, you are likely to be an unsung hero, but this doesn’t really trouble you.
You value fairness and equality. Others naturally seek you out for your wisdom and your ability to give good advice. The basis for this good and sound advice comes from your deeply caring and empathetic nature. You appreciate beautiful things—music, artwork, literature—but mostly, you appreciate the beauties of nature. You want more than anything to make the world a better place . . . and you do!
The girls’ name Diana comes to us from Roman mythology, in which she was the goddess of the hunt and the moon. (She is known in Greek mythology as Artemis.) Diana was the twin sister of Apollo and the daughter of Jupiter (the king of all the Roman gods, equivalent to the Greek god Zeus). It is thought that the name Diana came from the Greek root “dios”, meaning “of Zeus” or “divine” or “of the sky.”
Throughout the beginning of the 20th century in the United States, Diana was somewhere in the middle popularity range. Then it seemed to hit its stride in the 1930s and 1940s, and it reached the Top 100 in 1941. It seemed to peak in popularity during the 1940s through the 1960s, and then began to fall, even falling out of the Top 100 in 1976. Then everything changed when Prince Charles of Wales became engaged to the lovely Lady Diana Spencer, and Diana hung around at approximately position #100 all the way into the early 21st century.
Without a doubt, the most famous Diana is the late former Lady Diana Spencer, who became Princess Diana of Wales. Wife of Prince Charles, and mother of Princes William and Harry, she made history by divorcing her royal husband and giving up her title as Her Royal Highness. Her tragic death in 1997 is still felt and remembered worldwide. Also on our list of famous Dianas are actresses Diana Muldaur and Diana Lynn, singers Diana Krall and Diana Ross, and golfer Diana Luna.
