Characteristics of Eliana
Etymology & Historical Origin - Eliana
The name Eliana is a Latinized mutation of the Hebrew name Eliyanah which means ‘God has answered me’ or the ‘Lord has responded.’ The name is derived from the Hebrew words “El” (meaning ‘God’) and “ana” (meaning ‘answered’). The middle element of the name indicates a first person possession, hence the full meaning: God has answered me. Eliana is mainly used among Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, but it has also been adopted by English speakers by way of combining the popular names “Elle” and “Anna.”
Popularity of the Name Eliana
Outside from a brief period of usage between 1986 and 1987, the name Eliana really comes onto the U.S. popularity charts in 1991. It takes a few years for the name to decide what it wants to do on the charts and then suddenly in 1996 it becomes clear Eliana is headed up the list of most popular girls’ names in America. Within 15 years, the name advances over 800 spots on the charts; if Eliana keeps up its current trajectory, we expect to see the name land a spot on the Top 100 list in a few more years. Since the name originated from Latin romance languages, it has a particularly poetic sound. It’s a beautiful, lyrical four-syllable name that almost dances off the tongue. It’s also a lovely choice for spiritual parents who prayed for a child and ‘God answered them.’
