How would you pronounce Eliana?


Ellie-Anna?
E-lie-anna?
Ellie-aw-na?
E-lie-aw-na?

I want it pronounced Ellie-Anna but don't want to spell it with a hyphen. I like how Eliana looks but don't her to have to correct people all the time like my other daughter does with her name. Suggestions on spelling? Or do you think most people would pronounce it the way I want?

I’d pronounce it Elle-Anna or Elle-Li-Arna from looking it at but I know a Liana

Eh-lee-ah-nah

If you want something that sounds like Ellie-Anna I would definitely go for different spelling as I wouldn’t think many people would get it right first time!

I read it as Ellie-Anna but can definitelt read it other ways. I do also think adding an extra 'n' would be better. Lovely name!
