Etymology of the name DIVA JANA.
Meaning of the baby name DIVA JANA.

  

DIVA JANA.  Diva-Jana, also Divajana = "divine gate" or "gate to heaven."  The feminine form of Roman Divus Janus (q.v.).  Together these divinities presided over day and night, as the sun and moon.

... Divajana became Diana (q.v.); and as groves were sacred to her, and she was as pure a goddess as Vesta, there was every reason for identifying her with the Greek Artemis, and giving her possession of the temple of Ephesus, and the black stone image that "fell down from Jupiter," or the sky; she had Apollo given as her fellow instead of Janus, and thenceforth was the goddess of the silver bow, daughter of Jupiter and Latona, as Artemis had been of Zeus and Leto. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
