A man was in love with a young lady whose name was Hannah. 
When he asked her to be his wife she wrote down the letters of her name in this manner:

and promised that she would be his if he could tell her correctly in how many different ways it was possible to spell out her name, always passing from one letter to another that was adjacent.

You may start from any of the H's and go backwards or forwards and in any direction, so long as all the letters in a spelling are adjoining one another. 
How many ways are there, no two exactly alike?
