"My name is Ilona. I used to dislike it as a child, in part because kids had no originality so all I ever heard was "Ilona? You must be so alone!", but also because I never found my name on gas station/gift shop souvenirs. But as I got older I realized how awesome it is to not be the 3rd Sarah or Chelsea in the room. I started to realize my name is actual quite beautiful as well. Plus I receive loads of compliments. Overall, it's a pretty excellent name." Jun. 3, 2021:
"My nanme is Ilona. I was named after my Slovak grandmother. We say the name Ill own a. The I, though pronounced E is almost silent, and sounds more like a short ah or ill more than a long E. Everyone sees the name says I lone a with a long I, which is not correct. Everyone who hears the name first spells it Alona. I love the name, but in some groups I use my middle name, so that I don't have to explain this!" Apr. 8, 2015:
"My name is also Ilona. Like the woman who posted on 1-24-08, I pronounce my name: E-loh-nah. But for some reason, people still have a tough time pronouncing it and spelling it. I love my name although when I was a child, I didn't like it much because people couldn't pronounce it. Now I am happy to have such a unique and beautiful name. I have never met anyone else with the same name." Oct. 24, 2009:
"i love my name because it's a centuries old european name and it sounds sexy but of a woman out of reach. when i am in the states or latin america i feel it's quite unique, but in europe it's not that common but not unique and gaining popularity out of eastern europe the last 10 years."

"My Mom's name is Ilona and she says it "I lona." My grandmothers name was lona and so she wanted a daughter with a similar name, but not the same name. When she found Ilona in the name book it was a perfect fit. This is a wonderful, unique, and beautiful name. I would highly recommend this name to anyone." Sep. 13, 2008:
"My name is Ilona. I really LOVE my name. people always say it wrong or spell it wrong, but when they get it right, they say its a beautiful name and I agree. The correct way to say this name is "E-loh-nah" I met about 4 people with that name in Poland, where I was born. I love this name because there arnt many people with it and I am proud to be one of them." Jan. 24, 2008:
