Liliana is the worst name ever! I know a girl called Liliana but I called her Willyana!

It seems to be getting more popular, but I still find it to be a gorgeous name. I love Lily as a nickname too. It’s very feminine, and yes, frilly, but I love that about it.

Lily is the prettiest name to me, and I really like lots of Lily names but haven't ever warmed to Liliana. I think for me it is a little too frilly and doesn't flow as well as Lily, Lilina or Lilia but it's only my personal opinion. I still think it's lovely for a flower name.

My name is Liliana. I never really liked it so I went by Lili of course I didn't want to have a different spelling but I knew people would spell it "Lily" anyways. After reading a few comments I realized that I should like this name, people calling it "Pretty" or "amazing" made me feel so good! Every time I introduce myself people say "Wow, Liliana, that is a beautiful name." I pronounce Lili just like Lily and Liliana as it is Lili-ee-AHN-ah But some people aka substitutes call me Lilian, Lili-Anna, Lele-anna, and a bunch of other things. But most people get my name right.

So much nicer than Lilian. Of course, Liliana is kind of long, but it can easily be shortened to Lily, which is almost as pretty. If I have a daughter someday, I'd definitely consider naming her this. (Of course, I'm still a teenager. Who knows what names I'll like when I'm old enough to have kids).

My daughter is called Liliana (pronounced Lily-ARH-NA). I first heard the name from my daughter's father (who is Portuguese) his cousin is called Liliana and I fell in love the first time I heard it.

I really like the name. I have been thinking about naming a daughter LillieAhnna if I have children. I picture a very strong-willed, yet sweet girl.

I love Liliana-well, I'm biased considering this is my name. I think it's beautiful. I'm Polish-Russian on my mother's side and the name is an ode to my grandmother, whom I love dearly. However, I was (kinda) named after Lily Evans from Harry Potter. I like to go by Lily and my dad calls me Tiger Lily. I think Liliana sounds professional, while Lily can be used in childhood. Every name is beautiful-you just need to learn how to use it:) -Liliana.

I discovered this name last year and I found it to be absolutely lovely. I see this name this year and I still love it as much as I did before, though I pronounce it Lil-ee-AHN-Ah. Lily with Anna doesn't sound as unique.

What a beautiful, almost perfect name. I hesitate to call it "almost perfect," because names I've said that about in the past have faded for me: Anastasia, Aurora, Callista, Constance, Guinevere, Katarina, Lavinia, Linnaea/Linnea, Maialen, Marian, Muriel, Nefertari, and Ursula were all once names I'd declared as my favorite. Now, none are even in my Top 10. So, I hesitate to say the same about Liliana... yet I do. It is that beautiful. I prefer the pronunciation lil-ee-AHN-ah rather than saying it as a combination of "Lily" and "Anna", but it is truly an amazing name.

All the Lilianas I know or know of are from a Mediterranean background - in general, Anglo-Saxons don't seem to have the courage to choose this pretty name yet, although other Latinised names are commonly used.

This is just a lovely name, so classy and it sounds very classic and old, which I love, but I think that I like it more with two L's more.

Liliana is originally derived from the Latin Lilium "Lily," therefore it basically means, "Pure As A Lily."

In Italy Liliana was typical of the 1920s. It was the 2nd most popular name in Rome in 1921 (behind Maria), the 4th in 1926 (behind Maria, Silvana and Maria Luisa).

Beautiful name! I prefer this spelling, though - Lilianna looks too frilly.

In the movie "Snow White: A Tale of Terror", starring Sigourney Weaver, Sam Neill, Monica Keena, and Gil Bellows, and based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the main character, Snow White, has this name, though it is spelled Lilliana, nickname Lilli (she was named after her mother, Lilliana, who died giving birth to her). It's an interesting movie. Anyway, I like Liliana spelled more this way, with one "l" in the middle, and I hate Lily spelled any other way than Lily, but Liliana is a really beautiful name.

I personally know a Liliana. I, myself, absolutely adore the name. I plan naming one of my children it because you can call your child Lily when she's young and for when she becomes of age, you may call her Lilianna. I love the name because it's unique and very strong.

I love the look and sound of this name but it's just not practical in everyday life! I know an Italian woman called this and shouting her or just saying 'good morning Lilianna' takes too long and sounds a bit silly. I think most Lilianna's will end up just being called Lily or Anna which kind of defeats the purpose a bit.

I think Liliana is overdoing it, and Lily is just fine the way it is. There's a saying: "Gilding the lily".

Grr ignorant people. Lilian is a form of Liliana, though Liliana is ten times more beautiful, if said right. No Lilly-Ana! Lily-AHN-a.

This name is very beautiful and underused in my opinion. A good name to grow up with, it also offers a lot of nicknames, Lily, Anne, Anna, Annie, etc.

I LOVE this! My favourite name right now and I don't think I'll ever get over it. I think it's brilliant, pronounced in either the Portuguese or Polish way.

I like Lily as a nickname for this.

"Liliana" is connected to "Lily", that is why "Liliana" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday). The Bulgarian variant of "Liliana" is "Lilyana", "Lilyana" has a nameday on Palm Sunday, because "Lilyana" is derived from the Bulgarian word "liliya", which means the flower "lily".
