Characteristics of Elliana
Etymology & Historical Origin - Elliana
Elliana is an elaborate respelling of the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese name 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 specifically. 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.” Elliana with two “L”s is mainly an Americanized respelling but has also appeared in Australia.
Popularity of the Name Elliana
Elliana (with two Ls) made her debut on the U.S. female naming charts for the first time this century in 2005. The name is basically following the popularity of her more traditional sister Eliana (with one L). The more typical spelling (Eliana) is vastly more popular than Elliana, Elianna or Iliana, but it really comes down to preference since all four have essentially the same pronunciation. Americans tend to prefer the fanciful double-L or double-N spellings over other English-speaking nations. Minimalists and traditionalist favor Eliana, while others are drawn to the elaborations of Elliana or Elianna. It’s a lovely choice for parents who have prayed for a baby girl, and ‘God has answered’.
