Meaning of the baby name GAYANE.

  

GAYANE.  Armenian name of uncertain etymology.  It may be related to Konkani gāyān, meaning "melody." (An English-Konkani Dictionary, Maffei, 1883).  It is the name of a saint of the Armenian Orthodox Church. 

... She was going with 53 of her Christian girl friends and their teacher, the lady Gayane. Nina joined these virgins, and their sweet company brought her almost insensibly well nigh to her Iveria. Yet she had first to stop at the Armenian city of Vogarshabad. But Nina did not accept the princess's hospitality. She lived "from the work of her hands, under the vine." But a short respite was theirs at Armenia. Diocletian found out his victim, and Tiridate, King of Armenia, lent a willing hand to slay the virgin, who braved his and the Emperor's offers of love; Ripsimia and her girls, with the noble Gayane, were put to death on September 30th, the day now sacred to their memory as saints of the Church. (The Theosophist, v. 30, 1609)
