I believe the name Liliana is also used in Spanish, in which it's pronounced li-lee-AH-nah.

This name seems to be fairly common in Latin American countries.

"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".

There's something very sweet and romantic, about it. A soft name I find, which I like a lot!

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.

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.

A very pretty name but I prefer Lily. Also can be spelled Lilianna.

It's a nice alternative to Lillian.

Liliana's pretty, though Lillian and Lilian are WAY prettier.

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.

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

Something about this name wants to make me puke!

Liliana is an improvement over Lily or Lilian. It's very pretty.

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 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.

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.
-- harry_sent_me  11/4/2007
Beautiful name! I prefer this spelling, though - Lilianna looks too frilly.

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).

The Italian pronunciation is lee-LYAH-nah. [noted -ed]

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

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 D'Ambrosio (b. 1964) is an Australian politician and an Australian Labor Party member of the Victorian Legislative Assembly.

She goes by the name Lily.

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.
-- keepitreal  1/26/2011
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.

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.

This is a pretty name. It's very common in the United States.
