    Eliana Annie doesn't have flow at all, which is a shame as Annie is gorgeous. Both names contain the same Ann sound, and even if you use the ah-na prn of Eliana, it's still too close to me. Annie could work as a nn for Eliana, but if it's your mum's name you might not want to do that.

    Grace is a bit filler of a middle to me, and Belle's just everywhere (often as Bella, but the names are very close) though I do think Eliana Michelle is a nice combination. Eliana Eloise is too El- heavy to work.

    Yeah, I do think it's too much "Anne" in both names. What about using Annie as a nickname for Eliana? Adding a second middle name could help, too.

    Of your other choices, I agree Grace and Michelle flow best.

    I think Eliana is so pretty! You have to remember that flow isn't as important as using a family name. The love of a name and the family meaning is more important. Eliana Annie is really cute. Say it a few times....it's cute! &....Annie being your Mom's name will be more special to your daughter in the long run.

    The -a A- is too much.
    If you don't feel that Eliana honors your mother Annie then I would stick with Annie and find a different first name. Sorry!

    Annie could be the nickname for your little Eliana.
