Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Lilyanna

Lilyanna is either the pairing of female names Lily and Anna or it’s a fanciful elaboration of Lillian. Lily is the name of a flower, borrowed from the Old French by way of Latin “lilium.” The Lily plant is a large, elegant and showy garden flower once so revered by the ancient Greeks that they believed it sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. It is also the flower symbolizing chastity and purity. Anna is a name derived from the Bible and is derivative of the Hebrew Hannah meaning “grace, favor”. See the Lily and Anna name pages for more detail. Alternately, about four or five hundred years ago Lillian developed as a nursery form of Elizabeth. Elizabeth is also a Biblical name from the Hebrew meaning “God is my oath.” Even though Lilyanna has a sweet old-fashioned feel to it, it’s actually a newly created name.
