Kiana became popular in the USA in the 1990s a long with a host of other similar-sounding names, like Kiera/Sierra/Kiarra/Ciarra etc. It may be a form of Qiana, the name of a synthetic fabric that was popular in the 1970s. There is also a small Inupiat settlement (population 388 in 2000) in NW Alaska called Kiana, though its probably not the source of the name.
