i have always known the meaning of my name, but here is more detale of it...

Susan is a female given name, a form of Susanna, deriving originally from Middle Egyptian "sšn" (lotus flower), first reported on an 11.Dyn. sarcophagus approximately 2000 B.C. Susan is a very popular name, and variations are found in many languages. However, the Hebrew root for the name for the lily, שושן is derived from the root שוש or ששנ , meaning to be joyful, bright, or cheerful, which is the basis for the word and name ששון Sasson, meaning joy.

(this one makes me laugh! what's even funnier is i am part hungarian,lol!)

The Persian name for lily is sausan. A similar word, shoshan, exists in Hebrew, meaning a type of flower, but the exact type is not known. The name of Susa, an ancient city of Persia, may be derived from the lilies which abounded in the plain in which it was situated. In Hungarian, the name 'Zsuzsa' is a form of Susan, which there also means 'evil.'
