Characteristics of Lilianna
Etymology & Historical Origin - Lilianna
Lilianna is an embellished Latinate form of Lillian. Almost all languages that use the Latin form spell this name Liliana (one “n” as opposed to two). Lillian is an English name dating back to the 16th century; it began as a pet form or nursery name for Elizabeth. Lillian is often thought to be a longer derivation of the name Lily, but this is probably erroneous as Lily wasn’t in use as a given name until the 19th century –almost three centuries after Lillian. Since Lillian is believed to be derived from Elizabeth, then the name’s meaning is “God is my oath” (see Elizabeth for more detail). Of course, as a relatively modern coinage, Lilianna could also be the combination of Lily + Anna. It all depends on the perspective of the parents. Today most parents are opting for these flowery Latinate four-syllable names because they’re ultra-feminine and extravagant. The name’s meaning is probably secondary.
Popularity of the Name Lilianna
When it comes to names like Lilianna we honestly wish American parents would just agree on one spelling and leave it at that. What’s your poison? Lilianna? Liliana? Lilliana? Lilyanna? Lilyana? Lillianna? Do you like one “l” or two? One “n” or two? Do you prefer the “i” or the “y”? Certainly these are the questions being asked by preschool teachers across America as they try and keep up with tremendous amounts of spelling variations that exist in our country today. So which one is the most popular today? Liliana gets about 50% share-of-voice, followed by Lilliana (18%) and Lilyana (12%). We say stick with Liliana which is the way it’s spelled by the Italians, Spanish and Portuguese (not to mention Hungarians, Romanians and Poles). Or just call your daughter Lily Anna (as in two words). Otherwise it’s a confusing mess. Lilianna is a spelling that’s only been in use in America since 2005 (at least with enough frequency to make the charts). Less than 10% of the baby Lilianas being born today receive this particular spelling.
