look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
Derived from lana meaning light, Helen referring to Helen of Troy, and the word lioness. Someone who naturally radiates with light, is beautiful, smart, strong, nurturing, and elegant.
Lananesses are just not actresses of the stage and screen. They are the girls who somehow handle school, work, and a social life with a smile on their face and a spring in their step.
