You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Zhana -
something very, very special - even in her home state North Carolina!

If you’re looking for someone named Zhana, you might want to head to North Carolina. Why North Carolina of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no women or girls named Zhana living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few women and girls named Zhana living in one state or another, but in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Zhana and you live outside of North Carolina, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in North Carolina, the name Zhana is not really that common – there are only 5 women and girls with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00012% of all female residents of North Carolina – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!
