I think it's a very girly and beautiful name. It's sounds like a princess's name.

Eliana was my mother's name. It comes from the Greek ELIOS, the god of the sun. It therefore means the Daughter of the Sun.

Eliana Ramos was an Uruguayan model who died of anorexa nervosa at 18. It is a sad history, specially since her older sister and fellow model, Luisel Ramos, had died of the same ailment only six months earlier.

Eliana is the name of my aunt. I've always found the two meanings very interesting and lovely: "sun, light" (Greek, Old French) and "my God has answered" (Hebrew). Absolutely stunning, one of my favorites.

Since Eliana comes from the Greek "Helios" it is most definitely used in Russian. It would be written ÝëèàÍa and pronounced Yeh-lee-ah-nah. When writing the Russian characters into Latin characters Eliana would be spelt as just that, Eliana.

The correct Spanish pronunciation is Eh-lyah-nah. It would only be read Eh-lee-ah-nah if it were spelled Elíana.

"My God has answered", how beautiful! And this is a very pretty name and pronounced beautifully. Definitely a name worth considering.

Italian pronunciation of "Eliana":

Eyh-LYAH-Nah

"E" is said quite nearly "Eyh," in other words very close to "Hey" without the "H." "Lia" equals "LEE-Ah," although transforms to "Lyah" when spoken at a normal pace (stress "I" to "EE," "A" as in "Father"). "Na" is as always, "Nah." [noted -ed]

The name is also quite popular in Portugal so you might want to add Portuguese to the list! :) [noted -ed]

Eliana - (Eli-Ar-Nah)

This is 1 or 2 of the girls names on my list for any future daughters I may have. I love this name!
Nicknames I like are El, Eli, Elsi and Ella.

It means something like 'god has answered' I believe?

This name is also in use in Germany and The Netherlands. In The Netherlands, the name has been in use since at least 1901. It has slowly been rising in popularity since the early 2000s, with 12 births in 2011 being the highest number for the name so far.
