Etymology & Historical Origin - Lilyana

Lilyana is the Bulgarian spelling of Lillian. Among English-speakers in the United States, though, Lilyana is more of an Americanized respelling and fanciful elaboration of Lillian. The etymology of the name Lillian dates back to the 16th century, coined as a nursery form of the name Elizabeth which means “God is my oath.” Lilyana could also be considered a longer more elaborate form of Lily (by adding the feminine suffix “ana”). Lily essentially comes from the vocabulary word for the flower of the same name, from the Old French by way of Latin “lilium.” The Lily plant is a large, elegant and showy garden flower once so revered by the ancient Greeks that they believed it sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. It is also the flower symbolizing chastity and purity.

Popularity of the Name Lilyana

The name Lilyana first appeared on the American female naming chart a few years ago in 2006. It’s not like a million Bulgarians suddenly immigrated to our country, but rather American parents like to doll-up their names with these fancy respellings and elaborations. There are so many of these “-ana” suffix names on the female charts for girls in America: Viviana, Ariana, Adriana, Juliana, Eliana, Luciana, etc. All of these names, like Lilyana, are four syllables and ultra feminine and flowery. Furthermore, girl names that start with “Lil” are given to well over 25,000 baby daughters each year, making this family of names quite trendy. The less fluffy two-syllable Lily is the most popular, followed by the more frilly three-syllable Lillian. Lilyana and her other four-syllable compatriots are reserved for the more fancy-pants parents out there.
