"my God has answered"

Eliana Origin and Meaning

The name Eliana is a girl's name of Hebrew, Greek, Latin origin meaning "my God has answered".

Eliana is a lilting, rhythmic choice, which has caught on in the US and other English-speaking countries, along with many other El-starting names.

The Hebrew name Eliana was taken from the elements el, meaning "God" and ana, meaning "answered." Eliana also has roots as a variation of the Late Latin name Aeliana, a feminization of the male given name Aelianus, itself derived from the Roman family name Aelius. Aelius is related to the Greek word helios, which refers to the Sun.

A widely multi-cultural choice, Eliana is heard in Israel, Spain, Portugal, Russia and Italy. The pretty French version is Eliane.

One celebrity who chose it for his daughter is Christian Slater.
