The name kanna isn't actually just a Japanese name, it's also from India.

The Indian name kanna is a masculine name which means 'Krishna', a Hindu deity (the one who is most often depicted playing flutes in shrines and statues and what-not dedicated to him) who is regarded as an avatar of vishnu. And the meaning of Krishna's name is literally translated to mean 'black, dark, dark blue'.

The Japanese version of the name kanna is much simpler, and can be used for both genders based on the way it's spelled. Kan-na is the feminine form and means 'letters' or 'writing', ka-na is the masculine form and means 'powerful'.

Are kaname and yuuki really siblings?

NO. Kaname and Yuki are not real siblings. SPOILERS! Don't read if you don't want to know what happens in the manga. Kaname is really the Kuran ancestor, one of the very first vampires and the first Kuran. Rido sacrificed Yuki's real brother, who coincidentally was named Kaname, to awaken the Kuran ancestor. Kaname had been sleeping for thousands of years and could not control his hunger when he awakened. At a last resort, he regressed his body into that of a baby's and erased all of his memories. He then left his fate in the hands of Haruka and Juri, their parents. Haruka and Juri both thought Kaname the ancestor was their real baby, but their baby died when Rido sacrificed him. Kaname also believes he is their real child, since he erased him memories, until later he begins to regain snippets of his past. By the time Rido appears he fully remembers who he truly is. Kaname and Yuki are blood related, but very very distantly. Kaname also stated he would have been happier if he had been born as Yuki's real brother. Recap, Kaname and Yuki are NOT siblings.

Does sesshomaru like Kaname from the secret mask?

Sesshomaru may not express feelings of love, but as it was possible for love for kagura it may also be possible for him to love kaname from the secret mask. I hope you mean that one. at the end(spoiler alert) Sesshomaru looked at the sky and Jaken was wondering what he was thinking meaning he could of been thinking about Kaname ina romantic way, maybe even as a friend, or like the relationship he and rin have. Kaname loves Sesshomaru I'm sure, but Their's not a good way to tell if he likes Kaname the same way, so use your imagination for what he feels for her.

Ok now yuki will marry kaname her ''brother but what happens to zero?

Actually kaname is NOT Yuki brother, because he died long time ago,so then he reborn again, (I don't know why), but they HAVE to get married because if they are purebloods and are brother and sister they have to get married and as for zero and his brother, they probably apologize about what they did in the past and start over again. P.S. Yori and Zero MIGHT be a couple! P.P.S. Zero can't be with yuki since he wanted to kill all purebloods and if there is a season three he MIGHT fight with yuki. P.P.P.S. yuki and kaname suits each other, not zero so I want yuki to be with kaname not anyone else, SO don't EVER separate yuki and kaname from each other.
