How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan and her husband, Alexis Denisof, have welcomed a daughter named Satyana.
This one has me stumped! It reminds me of Japanese names – like Satomi – as well as Russian appellations like Tatiana. (And Denisof’s bio indicates that he is of Russian descent, and has a family name himself.) But a Google search turned up the Satyana Institute, which claims the name is Sanskrit – sat means truth and yana means vehicle; together, it means “a vehicle for action infused with the grace of spirit.” Or so sayeth the site.
What do you think of Satyana?
