Liliana and Lilianna aren't just different spellings, necessarily. I say "arna" for the first, and "Anna" when it's a double "n". I do tend to agree that the simplicity of Lily can be more attractive than some of the fancier variants, although I really like them. Lily and Lillian are currently my favourites. The double "L" in Lilly, etc makes it feel less like a flower name, so in general, I feel that Lily is nicer. I prefer Lillian, as a spelling, though.

headintheclouds Says:


Liliana is very long and girly, with lots of the soft L sounds, vowels and the -a ending that makes it fit right in with the popular girl name aesthetics of today. I can see its appeal, but it's not for me as I find the name too vowel-y. I prefer the simpler diminutive Lily. The name gets even more complicated if parents decide to spell it with extra letters like Lilliana, Lillianna-- the child would have a time initially learning to spell her name! xD
