Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Elianna

Elianna is most likely a Latin corruption of the Hebrew name Eliyanah which means “God has answered me” or the “Lord has responded”. The name is derived from the Hebrew roots “El” (meaning “God”) and “ana” (meaning “answered”). The middle element indicates a first person possession, hence the name’s full meaning: God has answered me, specifically. It is also believed that the Italians, Portuguese and Spanish also use Eliana as a more modern form of an old Roman family name, Aelianus (Aelius), likely borrowed from the Greek “helios” meaning “sun”. Finally, Elianna could simply be the combination of two other popular female names: Ellie and Anna.
