Meaning of the baby name BOYANA.

  

BOYANA (Бояна).  Feminine form of Slavic Boyan (q.v.), meaning "battle, or, lord."  Usage: Bulgaria, Serbia.

... Nobody remembers when people began to call the village Yavor, the "ornament of the Ibar valley."  Many an old man remembers when, shortly after the War of Independence, Dragovichi returned home rich in fame and rich in spoil; fame won in many a bloody conflict, spoils taken from many a Turkish house.  Then it was that the zadruga of Dragovichi began to be talked of for its wealth and prosperity.  People called it the ornament of Yavor village, as Yavor village was the ornament of the Ibar valley.  But it is only two years since Boyana, the youngest niece of old Miloye, the daughter of his dead brother Milan, began to frequent the Sabors (festive meetings around the churches and monasteries) that the people say, "Yavor is the ornament of Ibar valley, Dragovichi zadruga is the ornament Yavor, but Boyana is the ornament of the zadruga Dragovichi." (In A Good Cause, Mitford, 1885)
