My name is Ileana and I don´t like it, because it´s too unusual at least for my country! I still don´t find another person with the same name!

Pronounced "EE-lay-AW-naw", I think that this name is gorgeous. The Romanian operatic soprano Ileana Cotrubas bears this name.

I have also seen this name spelt Ileanna.

American actress Illeana (with two "l"s) Douglas bears this name. I remember her most vividly as the kooky character in "Stir of Echoes" that hypnotizes Kevin Bacon, opening him up to all manner of extra sensory spookiness.

I have a great friend named Iliana, pronounced il-ee-AU-nau as well. I think it's nice because you can picture a young girl with this name, AND a grown woman. Both times you can carry this name with pride.

I have a friend who has a niece named Ileana (though I do not remember if she spelled it this way). I've never met the kid, so I have no idea what she is like, but I loved the name every since I first heard it. It's uncommon but not too out there and 100% feminine without being overly frilly. Plus I like how it's four syllables but only six letters.
While I do find the pronunciation gorgeous, I'm not so sure about the spelling. The I followed by the L could be mistaken for two I's and "I" names generally don't look so nice in certain fonts (I'm probably crazy for obsessing over something so minor). I guess you could spell it Eliana, but I would pronounce that differently.
