  1. Dzenana is my name and I really love it. I live in Austria and most people have many troubled to pronounce it properly. It can be very exhausting to correct people all the time. At home my family nickname is Dzana.
    My little sister´s name is Dzenita, but we mostly call her Nita. When I was little I wanted a sister with the same initial letter, and that´s the reason why they chose it.
    There is also Dzeneta, which derives directly from the Bosnian word for Eden, which is Dzenet.
