(han' nuh) Personal name meaning, “grace.” One of the wives of Elkanah and mother of Samuel (1 Samuel 1:2 ). Because she had been barren for many years, she vowed to the Lord that if she should give birth to a son, she would dedicate the child to God (1 Samuel 1:11 ). Subsequently, she gave birth to the child Samuel. She fulfilled her vow by bringing her son to the sanctuary at Shiloh, where he served the Lord under the direction of Eli. Later on, Hannah had other sons and daughters. See Samuel .
