Opinions on the name Eliana?
Really liking this name. I think it would be a wonderful way to honor my mother. Her name is Anabela. I'm not really a fan of using Anabela as a first name though, as I think it sounds a bit dated so why not use a variation
A few questions..
Would you pronounce it EL-E-AH-NAH or EL-E-ANNA? I prefer the first.
Does this name make you think of a Spanish girl? I'm not Spanish, it was just my first thought when I saw it.
Do you like the mn Brooke paired with it? Personally I think Eliana Brooke flows beautifully. What do ya'll think? Also, would love some more middle name suggestions
Just for fun:What name would you give Eliana's twin sister?
Excited to hear all your responses!

I love Eliana! Very sweet sound without being overly frilly. And with the nn Ellie as a possibility, I can picture it working with many different personalities. I agree with you that El-e-ah-nah is a nicer pronunciation and I think it flows naturally from the spelling as well.
I don't think of a hispanic girl at all when I see the name, I think it works for all different ethnicities.
And yes, Eliana Brooke flows very nicely! Some other ideas:
And for a twin sister? Hmmm..
Eliana & Lennae
Eliana & Felicity
Eliana & Delaney

I love it and it is on my list. I also pronounce it El-e-ah-nah. I like the nn options of Ellie or Elia.
I am not a fan of Eliana Brooke, or Brooke at all for that matter. I do like the mn combos suggested by the first poster.
If you like it paired with a one syllable, less frilly name, I like Eliana Paige more than Eliana Brooke.Audrey Coraline | Emmeline Clover | Esme Cordelia | Etta Rosemary | Hazel Matilda | Margot Elspeth | Phoebe Kerensa | Rosalie Fern | Sylvie Marigold | Vivienne Amara | Willa Katherine | Zara Madeleine | Amias Jude | Archer Daniel | Callum Everest | Cato Benjamin | Emmett Byrne | Griffin Wilder | Leo Sebastian | Nathaniel Winter | Lucian Mateo | Quentin Miles | Rhys Anderson | Thorin Jasper
