Teri, Hannah is indeed a name of Hebrew origin, but in the original Hebrew form it is Chana (where the ch is pronounced as a guttural, similar to the sound in the German name, Bach). Hanna as a surname is also common among persons of Irish origin. There is no evidence that the surname, Hannah, is associated primarily with Jews. More likely, it is a variant of the Irish name, Hanna.
