Hi My name is Ilana. Nobody that I don't correct or I make sure they know how to pronounce it, calls me ELENA or ALANA. My own uncle calls me ALANNA. I believe that it is pronounced Eilana. I love my name and hope other people use this name... I'm wondering how many people have this name in the USA besides myself.

My name is Ilana. A lot of people called me Eliana for the longest time and it was so annoying. Then it was just easier to be called "Alana" by my friends and sometimes family. My French teacher understands my name though.

One of my friends has this name. She goes by Lonnie, which is a cute nickname for a beautiful name.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
