I used to be obsessed with this name when I was younger. Lol. Now I think it's alright, but I'd never use it.
For me, an Ukrainian, this name has always been ugly and pretentious. It has that fake and overstretched "Slavic" vibe and is too close to the name of Milan city - and I just can't bear naming children after geographical objects. When I hear it, I imagine a 10 year old spoiled (and probably fat) girl from a small town who almost never sees her father (because he works abroad on a really crappy job to feed his family) but has all the best toys and gadgets in her class. Sorry.
That was really rude for you to even think about or even put down. I have a friend who's name is Milana she is the most humble person ever! I actually really love this name it is elegant and pretty at the same time!

I think it's pretty and sweet. It's a nice alternative to the popular Mila.
Also Slovene: https://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milana
This name is also used in the (former Soviet) country of Georgia, where it is written as მილანა.

If you go to Facebook and perform a search using the keywords "Milana" + "Tbilisi" or simply "მილანა", you will be able to find Georgian bearers. Be sure not to search for just "Milana", because then you will be overwhelmed with bearers from other countries.
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.
Also used in Netherlands.
Also a combination of Maria and Lana.
Also used in Russia, I believe. [noted -ed]
Milana is also common in Chechnya.
This name is also Croatian and Serbian. [noted -ed]
Also used in Croatia. [noted -ed]
That right there is a beautiful name. If I ever become famous, my stage name will be Milana something. Beautiful.
Also a Serbian name and like the person above me said Milena is more prevalent in Serbia as well.
In the Czech Republic a common form is Milena (more than 90%), than Milana.
