Etymology of the name OXANNA.
Meaning of the baby name OXANNA.


OXANNA.  A Russian and Ukrainian form of Greek Xenia (q.v.), meaning "stranger," also "hospitality."  Also spelled Oksana, and Oxana.

Christ, as a little child, appears to St. Oxanna (A.D. 1449-1505).  The good angel of Oxanna, of Mantua, conducted her, when only six years old, into heaven, and showed her the glory of the saints.  When she returned to earth, she vowed herself to God without reserve, and forthwith Jesus Christ came to her, in the form of a little child of ravishing beauty, with long curling blond locks, but wearing a crown of thorns, and carrying on His shoulder a heavy cross.  Stretching out His arms to Oxanna, He said to her, "My dear Oxanna, I am the Son of Mary.  If you follow Me, you must suffer much, as I also suffered, and was made perfect with sufferings."  Thus saying, He vanished, and the little girl was left with a heart brimful of divine love. (A Dictionary of Miracles, Brewer, 1901)
