Pronounced ee-lah-nah.

I knew a girl with this name who pronounced it IL-anna. It sounded like "Alanna" unless you were listening for the "I" sound at the begining.

The main character in Chaim Potok's book, Davita's Harp, is called Ilana Davita. By certain people she is called just Ilana, just Davita, or Ilana Davita.

My name is Ilana and I pronounce it ih-LAH-nah, but my Israeli relatives pronounce it ee-LAH-nah. People have always said to me "What a pretty name," but it is ofen misspelled. People often spell it "Illana" and it is really annoying. A lot of people mispronounce it too.

I know the nicest girl with this name. It's kind of a funny spelling, but it's pronounced like the name 'Alanah".

Very pretty name. She could go by Lana for short.

The name Ilana was given to 74 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I think it's a lot prettier than the more popular Alana.
