I am not sure about Jana, But the word Janna - (it is very similar), I am not sure how you are pronouncing it, but Janna means unseen or concealed. In arabic all words beginning with J tend to be hiden things like Jannat. or Jahanam

 

However, the word Jinn comes from the verb janna. I can not remember clearly, need to double check this out, Janna might have been the name of shaytan, parents

 

I can't say for certain whether it should be used to name a new born, but I would personally look for something better.

 

Hope this help, if I find anymore I will let you know

Salam Jana and welcome to IF,

 

I did a quick search and found out the following which makes me believe that Jana is Islamic :D

 

Meaning: God's Gracious Gift

Origin: Jana -> Jan -> Johannes -> John -> Yahyah

 

Yahyah (pbuh) or John the baptist was the son of Prophet Zakariyah (pbuh)

 

I hope it helped!

 

Wassalam!
