I prefer Lilian.

Also know of a Liana and a Leanna.

I love it. Pretty without being frilly, unusual without being weird.

yes I too much prefer the classic lily but with a colour surname it wouldnt work sad

good job its just for fun or I would never settle on a name hee hee.

Depends where you live re the pronunciation, I would pronounce the spelling given as lily anna. However we are in Scotland and we dont add in an extra "r" where none exists. I am sure we have our other faults though fgrin

Yes, too frilly.

Lily is still a gorgeous name, a bit overused a few years ago but I think its a classic.. Liliana is definitely and literally gilding the lily.

I like it but agree with the pronunciation everyone else has said. You would need to change the spelling for the pronunciation...but then I'm not sure it works?

I also know a Liliana and it's definitely pronounced 'Lilly-arna'. You'd have to change the spelling if you were set on your chosen pronunciation, OP.

I know a lovely Liliana - she's Romanian, think it is more popular in eastern Europe.

I wouldn't choose it!

I find it a bit too frilly. I love Lilias, the Scottish version of Lilian though.

Regardless of pronunciation, I think it's bloody awful.

Sounds like a hula dancer.

Witchesbrewandbiscuits Wed 18-Dec-13 19:32:47

you can spell it lillianna which I guess would be the lily anna pronunciation but I think thats a bit long winded.

Witchesbrewandbiscuits Wed 18-Dec-13 19:31:33

yeah I thought that.

BetterWithCranberryWensleydale Wed 18-Dec-13 19:31:15

I love it but would pronounce as Jane suggests

JanePurdy Wed 18-Dec-13 19:27:25

I would pronounce lilyAHna.
