Absolutely adore this name. It's on my list as well. I think Eliana is the best spelling and I would pronounce it EL-EE-ON-AH. The only thing I don't like is the nn Ellie. I would personally use Ella or Lia. All in all it's a beautiful name with a great meaning. Good luck
I think it is a very feminine and elegant name. I would pronounce it el-ee-ah-nuh. Spelling either Eliana or Elliana.
It sounds like a European name to me, that likely has a history. I do not think it sounds like a particularly modern/trendy name as others have suggested.
Thanks guys. I really like this name but i don't like the ah-na prn either. I prefer Ellie-Anna. Still wondering what the proper spelling would be to avoid pronounciation confusion. Or do you think that it would be inevitable?
