You’ve got options with Eliana. In Hebrew it means “my God has answered.” It could be an Italian and Spanish version of Eliane, which eventually goes back to the Roman name Aelius and the Roman word helios and means “sun.” Of course the boys’ name Eli comes from Hebrew and means “ascension” and “my God.”
Eliana barely made the popular names list until the late 1990s. It got into the 200′s in 2006.
