Etymology & Historical Origin - Liana

Liana developed as a short form for any name that ends in “Liana” such as (but not limited to) Eliana, Juliana and Liliana. The name Liana as an independently given name has been in use among the Italians, Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. It is also popular among Eastern Europeans and Slavs. One might argue that Liana is a cosmopolitan choice for girls. Because Liana spawned as a pet form for several other names, the name itself has no specific etymological meaning. However, a “liana” is also the descriptive word for any type of vine that grows vertically from the ground reaching and entwining the branches of trees and thus forming a shady canopy common to many rainforests.

Popularity of the Name Liana

The name Liana first entered the U.S. female naming charts in 1977 so this would be considered a fairly modern name by most standards. The name showed upwards and downwards momentum on the popularity charts for the first couple of decades, but since 2002 Liana appears to be increasing in usage. Still the name is used with only light moderation and has yet to reach positions of super-popularity or even common familiarity. The name is a simple pet form of such names as Juliana or Liliana but she stands firm on her own. It’s a pleasant enough sounding name with a pretty sensibility. American parents today are selecting Liana as a minimalistic yet attractive sounding name.
