Meaning & Origins

In Ireland this has been used as an Anglicized form of Eithne. The name occurs in the apocryphal Book of Tobit, where it is the name of the mother of Sarah and stepmother of Tobias. This is said to be from Hebrew ῾ednah ‘pleasure, delight’, and if so it is connected with the name of the Garden of Eden. The earliest known uses of the given name in England are in the 16th century, when it was probably imported from Ireland, although the spelling Ednah supports the idea that it was taken from the Bible.
437th in the U.S.
Jewish (Ashkenazic): Americanized form of a Jewish surname, spelled in various ways, derived from modern German Diamant, Demant ‘diamond’, or Yiddish dime(n)t, going back to Middle High German dīemant (via Latin from Greek adamas ‘unconquerable’, genitive adamantos, a reference to the hardness of the stone). The name is mostly ornamental, one of the many Ashkenazic surnames based on mineral names, though in some cases it may have been adopted by a jeweler.
1,500th in the U.S.
