Shiona is my name too. I'm trying to find out what it means. I thought I was the only one out there! I pronounce mine she-owe-na. Can you guys help?
Added by Shiona on 17 November 2006
Shiona, a Google search gives the following meaning;

The girl's name Sheena is pronounced SHE-nah. It is of Irish origin. Variant of Jane (Hebrew) "the Lord is gracious" or Jean. Made popular by singer Sheena Easton.

Sheena has 8 variant forms: Sheenagh, Sheenah, Sheina, Shena, Shiona, Shionagh, Sina and Sine.

But I didnt think Shiona was saying Sheena I thought she was meaning a name similar to Shona or have I got it wrong?

Mary, if you read the last part you'll see Shiona is one of 8 variants of the name. In other words it's as Marie is to Mary.
