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

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]
