It's ok, but I prefer Liana. Anna would be a nice nickname, or Lele.
Leanna Crawford, best singer on the face of the earth IMAO.
My name is Leana, not Leanna- and I like it better. Many people pronounce my name like Leanne Lee-ae-na but my name is Le-Ayna with a deeper a.
I've changed my mind. I like Leanna more than Deanna now. Besides, Leanna won't often be mispronounced as "LEE-nuh" like Deanna "Dee-AN-uh" is mispronounced as "DEE-nuh".

Leanna looks prettier, and I have someone in my family with the name Dianne, which isn't pronounced the same as Deanna, but it's pretty close. I don't like the Dee Dee as a nickname, it's really childish. So is Lee Lee, however, Leanna is a much better choice because I'd still be honoring my family, it ages well, and I think it sounds beautiful. I can picture a baby Leanna as well as an 85 year old woman named Leanna.
Wonderful name.
I love it. I love Deanna and Leanna (in that order).
Very redneck.

My sister's name is Leanna but we don't pronounce it
"Lee-Anna", we pronounce it "Lay-Onna" -the Spanish way. I personally like it and I also like her middle name, 'Christine' with it.
Leanna was used fairly often in both England and the USA well before Lee was used as a given name for girls. So I think it was more likely at first a respelling of Liana, a short form of Juliana, rather than being from Lee and Anna. Obviously, though, the name got reinterpreted as a blend of Lee and Anna after Lee did become popular as a given name.

The change of spelling from Liana to Leanna would have been logical back then, because in the 19th century people would have been much more likely to try to pronounce Liana with the sound of the word "lie" than they are today. So in 1800 the Leanna spelling would get people to pronounce the name as a short form of Juliana would have been more reliably than the Liana spelling would have.

In the indexes to censuses on Ancestry Library, there are 25 Leannas and 11 Lianas in the 1841 census of England. There are 545 Leannas and 44 Lianas in the index to the 1850 U.S. census. Before 1850 the US census only listed heads of families and so few women's names are recorded, but even so there was one family headed by a Leanna in Pennsylvania and one in North Carolina in the 1800 census. In the 1850 U.S. census the oldest Leanna is 90 year old Leanna West of Culpeper, Virginia. I checked that record to make sure the census taker had written Leanna and it was not just the indexer's mistake, and it definitely looks like Leanna to me on the original record. So Leanna is a much older name than many might think. [noted -ed]
Leanna was a minor character in the science fiction TV series Roswell.
My name is Leanna, and to me it's not a bad name. I am myself and people don't consider me as a "boring person" to talk to either, I am also very unique, there are only a few people on Earth like me, and I am outgoing. I also agree that I am a creative person. So if you think "Leanna is a such a name to comment on" that's too bad.

Both Leanna and Leann(e) strike me as decent, yet dreadfully boring, unimaginative, lazily constructed names. Still, this name has far more class than Brianna and Brianne, or Deanna or Deanne, for that matter.
My name's Leanne and I prefer Leanna. I've known one "Leanna" in my life but her mother went a little nuts on the spelling, fearing people would pronounce it with an "a" sound in the word "at" instead of the "a" sounds in "pasta". She went hog wild and saddled that poor little baby with, "Leeahnnah"! I was horrified and tried to intervene while she was still pregnant with her daughter -- afterall, that baby was basically getting "my name" and I felt I had to step up and defend my little "sister"! Oh, please don't get fancy with your spellings of this name. It's pretty just the way it is! Or as Liana, too.
Leanna is a very beautiful elegant name.
Leanna was used from 1880 to 1900 and dropped out of usage until the 1930's and has been used ever since, it just hasn't rated high on the popularity lists.
Leanna is such a beautiful name. I am surprised it isn't used more with the popularity of Anna, Julianna, and names like that.
Here's another white girl whose name is Leanna. But I have a difference, my name is writen like this: LeAnna, with a capital A! Is there anyone else out there who uses this version? Anyways, people are constantly messing my name up too but I don't mind. I love being a LeAnna because it's an unusal, and unique name. I guess I like being different!
Personally I hate my name Leanna! Reason being I'm always mistaken for Leanne or Lana! I'm so used to these names now that I think I actually am called Lana or Leanne! Does anyone else have the same problem? By the way I also am white and my name is leanna!
This is my sister's name and she says she loves her name. Many people tell her her name is very unique.
A lovely girls name, however I believe it comes from Australia.
This is my all time favourite girls name. I love the combination of the more masculine name 'Lee' with the very feminine name 'Anna'. It flows beautifully.
