Chesna

 

“She is one with nature. Her pure heart and divine soul conceived from the very seeds of the earth in harmony with Mother Nature and the blessings of the natural world.

Name

 

The female name Chesna is of Scandinavian origin and translates as bringing peace, calm.

And most significantly, saluting her confidence, heart and spirited strength of character.
