Personal Impression
I named my daughter Elijanah for the meaning. I really like Elijah (for a boy) and I thought Eliana was pretty. Wanted to use the J in her name, although it is pronounced like a Y in her name. We call her Ellie, Elle, or Jana (yana) for short. The spelling/pronunciation has been difficult for people, in her 8 years only 4 people have pronounced it correctly without needing help. LOL.

My name is Eliana. It means god has answered, and my parents chose it as they felt that god had answered their prayers for a second child.

Elz, Elzi, Ellie, Nana, Nani, Naan, Elle, Liana, Lili, Annie.

When I gave birth to my first baby (a son) in January last year, he died a few minutes after birth. I cried and ask God to bless me with another baby to call my own. I gave birth to a baby girl in February this year. I named her Eliana because God really answered my prayer.

My little girl is called Ellianna Rose. I love it and had never heard it before and now know what it means. A beautiful name for my beautiful baby.

I'm thinking of using this as my daughter's middle name, Cailin Eliana Cai, does that have a good flow, or is it awkward? I'm also considering Cailin Callie Cai...

When I gave birth to my daughter she had a serious attack but with all the prayers and reliance on God she survived. Then I had to look up a name, nothing could be better than Eliana for it sounds modern with a worthy meaning from Hebrew origin. How awesome.

This name is a STUNNER. I've loved this gorgeous name for such a long time now. The meaning of Eliana just gets to me. :')

I didn't like it at first, but now it's the name of my beautiful baby sister, born on Thanksgiving Day a year ago, and it fits very nicely.
It has almost an elvish feel to it.

Nicknames include: Elsie, Ellie, Ella, Ana, Liana, Leah, Ell. We call ours Ellie.

It could also be spelled Aliana, Elliana, or Elianah. It's a very lovely name.

It means: "God has answered us with" and our Ellie's middle name is Charis, which means "Grace"

So altogether, we have "God has answered us with grace."

I love this name. It's unusual and fits in with modern trends, but at the same time it's beautiful, flowing and ultra-feminine. I consider myself agnostic, but I still love many names with religious meanings. Eliana is also a great and more meaningful alternative to the currently popular Ella.

This is definitely my favorite name. It sounds simply beautiful, and I love the meaning. I hope it will be my daughter's name some day.

Wow-"My god has answered" That is just overly beautiful. I love this name, even if my mother doesn't like it (obviously she has no taste in names) I would use this name for a daughter. I also like Liana, Nana, Eli--- etc for nicknames.

As many people have said, Eliana means "my god answered" in Hebrew. For my mom, it couldn't have been more true, and thus my name is Elianna.

I love my name! Though I often need to spell it out for people when they write it, I've only ever gotten compliments on my name. Most people I know prefer it with only one "n" like it is on this site, but I think that it looks better on paper with two of them.

My middle name is Eliana and I think it's lovely. One of my favourites.

I was looking for a unique and meaningful name for my daughter that would connect her to God in some way with Hebrew origins. I am christian and when I read what Eliana meant, My God answers me, I said this is it. I love how it is spelled and sounds. It is truly a beautiful name.

I think Eliana is stunning -- a true beauty of a name.

What a beautiful name for a girl, one she could easily grow up with. I love the meaning of this name.

I know a little girl named Eliana. When I first heard the name, I thought it sounded trashy, but this little girl has dirty-blonde, curly hair, and a sweet face and nature. It then started to grow on me. Then, when I looked it up on this site, I liked that it was Hebrew and the meaning was nice. I would definitely name a little girl this, now that I know more about it.

This is a very pretty name. I like it a lot. It reminds me of one of my favourite names, Eleny, which isn't on this site.
