Anona

Anona could be a variant spelling of Annona, the name of the Roman personification of the yearly harvest. It comes from Latin annona meaning “yearly produce; corn, grain; means of subsistence” derived from annus (year) derived from a PIE root word. Annona is the name of a genus of plants known as the sugar apple; in this case the name seems to be derived from a Taíno word, anón, meaning “sugar apple”. Anona is also the name of an American song about a Native American woman from Arizona though it doesn’t seem that Anona is a legitimate Native American name. Perhaps it was inspired by the plant or from Latin Annona.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European, Taíno
