I love Milan for a girl, but I don’t like it for a boy at all! Milan sounds feminine enough, Milana as a feminine form sounds and looks ugly. This name doesn’t need a feminine form. Milan is feminine the way it is!

Milana is becoming more used in Russia and it is a nice, soft name with a sweet meaning. I think I prefer this to Milena.

In Czech the meaning of Milana is "gracious, favored." In Russian the name comes from the Russian word "milaya" which in turn comes from the Old East Slavic word "mil" meaning "dear, beloved, pleasant, sweet." So in Russian the name Milana means "dear, beloved, sweetheart, darling." There is debate about whether the name Milana is originally Czech or Russian in its origin as the etymology of the name goes very far back in both of these languages.

There is also a theory that the name Milana is Italian and is derived from the name of Milan city in Italy. According to this theory Milana means "fashionable lady" as Milan is the center of fashion in Italy.

In the Czech Republic a common form is Milena (more than 90%), than Milana.
