The meaning of the name Kiana
Meaning: Living with Grace Origin: American
Or From Diana, which is Latin in origin and means Complete Light.
This name occurs only once in the Bible:And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; then as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. Genesis 10.19Lasha (Gen 10.19) was the geographical name of a place located on the southern boundary of the Canaanites along with Gomorrah, Adnah and Zeboiim. Eusebius, Onomasticon, & Seetzen and Ritter identify Lasha with the sulpherous hot springs at Callirrhoe in Wady Zerqa Ma`in, on the East of the Dead Sea; in this agreeing with Targum Jerusalem.
Lasha is mentioned as a boundary of Canaan, the son of Ham, the son of Noah (Genesis 10:19).The etymology of the name Lasha is unknown so we're left to guess. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names traces this name back to an unused Hebrew root, and a parallel Arabic word meaning to pierce, and reads Fissure. NOBS Study Bible Name List reads Bursting Forth. BDB Theological Dictionary makes no attempt.
Perhaps this name is a construct: . The particle (le 1063), means To or Towards. The segment may come from (sha'a 2429), meaning Look At, Regard, or (sha'a' 2435), meaning Blinded, or (sha'a' 2436) meaning Sport, Take Delight In.
Whatever the original name giver meant to say with Lasha can no longer be determined, but it looks like To Be Viewed, To Be Blinded, or To Be Played With.
