"I named my daughter Heliana because of its religious connotation.Most people don't remember her name and asked me each time what is her name.I love when some friends though say hey -liana." Apr. 7, 2017:
"I named my daughter Eliana Helene. Her Nickname is Leni. I wanted a hebrew name that everyone in german and english can pronounce right. Of course no one does. I prefer the quick N pronouncation that is used in Sephardi countries.
Also the meaning was important to me (god has answered) and combined with Helene in greek its a double "light" meaning which is beautiful." Oct. 17, 2015:
"Beautiful, elegant, and unusual. The meaning is also wonderful." Apr. 17, 2009:
"I love the name Eliana! My 2 month old daughter is Eliana Elise. No one pronounces it correctly though. I think people don't look at it closely enough and they always say Elaina. I've also heard Alannah (?) and Elianna but just a couple times, most of the time it's Elaina." Nov. 13, 2007:
"Being my selfname i love my name at first it was weird because no one has it but i like it now because its unique" Oct. 26, 2006:
"My daughter is Eliana Nicole. Though we often shorten it to Ellie, the pronunciation of her full name is L-E-on-ah." Sep. 8, 2006:
"I adore Eliana (el-ee-AH-na). It's one of my top two favorite names. Gorgeous!" Aug. 11, 2006:
"Eliana Rose is our daughters name. Often it is mispronounced as Elaine-ah but I just correct them. We call her Ella for short. My husband found the name and I think it is just beautiful and elegant!!!" May. 10, 2006:
"Sounds great when pronounced E-lee-AHN-a. Not so fond of the harsh Midwestern sounding E-lee-ANN." Mar. 22, 2006:
"I am considering Eliane for my daughter's name but worried about the different pronounciations. Some pronounciations that I have heard are E-lee-anne, E-lee-ahn, Air-lee-anne, E-Lye-anne, etc. Personally, I prefer E-lee-anne. Igkee" Sep. 14, 2005:
"Eliana is my daughter's name. It is mis-pronounced more often than not. We have been calling her Ellie. Pronounciation is Ellie-Anna. I have heard of one other that spelled her name the same and another that spelled it Iliana (Illie-anna)." Jul. 20, 2005:

"We have an Eliana Autumn we love her name and it has a beautiful meaning. People dont often know how to pronounce it but they soon learn." Sep. 28, 2018:
"Actually I do not like it, because of its religious connotation." Jan. 15, 2017:
"My name is Eliana, but no one pronounces it right. So now everyone I know just calls me Elle or Ellie. In french, it is Eliane, also very pretty!" Jun. 20, 2011:
"We are considering this name for our baby but will be spelling it Ellianna to hopefully help reduce some of the mis-pronunciations. It sounds like Ellie-Ah-Na." Mar. 11, 2010:
"We named our daughter Eliana back in Jan. 2008 and since then, only ONE person has pronounced it correctly when they call her for appointments etc.. It even took close friends and grandparents a few months to get use to it! So, if that will bother you, I would suggest using another name, as people always say "Elaina". We did use it because there are 7 years between our girls. There were 7 years of prayers for her arrival. So the meaning was important to us. I do think it sounds beautiful as well :D" Oct. 4, 2008:
"I had never heard the name before 1998 when I came across it in a baby name book. My wife and I loved the name and the meaning so we used it for our second daughter. Since then I've noticed a remarkable spike in its occurrence (as shown in the graph above); there are three Eliana's in my daughter's grade school choir alone! I like to think we started the trend :)" Dec. 14, 2007:
"I love the name Eliana. The way I pronounce it is Eh-lee-ah-na. I think Eliana Sofia will be what my husband and I decide on, Evangeline is the other "maybe" name on our list. Anyway, I think it's a gorgeous name. I'll be very proud to give it to my daughter." Feb. 16, 2007:
"I love the name Eliana. And I like it pronounced el-ee-AH-nah. I also like how it means something along the lines of "The Lord answers". I agree that names ending with Anna shoud be pronounced as that, and with one 'n' it should be pronounced "AH". It should be like a rule of thumb. That way it is way less confusing! Maybe someday if I have a baby girl I'll name her Eliana. I also think it is very elegant and beautiful. Don't worry about it sounding "frilly". As far as I know the name has always been meant for a girl, anyway. Some people just want all names to sound "blah and neutral". BORING and not to mention stupid! Anyway, you rock all you Eliana's however your name is spelled or pronounced. Be proud of your unique name that is less used! And bear with all the people that mis-spell and mis-pronounce your beautiful name. :) I think it's worth it." Feb. 1, 2007:
"We are naming our daughter Ruby Eliana. We picked this name because of its meaning. "God has answered my prayer"." May. 30, 2006:
"The correct pronunciation is E-lee-ahna. If you want the Anna sound at the end, it should be spelled Elianna. It is like Ariana-R-EE-ahna. One N is always pronoucned Ahna." Apr. 19, 2006:
