Liana vs Elia and middle name suggestions

Having a hard time choosing between [name_f]Liana[/name_f] and [name_u]Elia[/name_u], but those are the 2 names we’ve narrowed it down to. We also haven’t found any middle names we’re crazy about so far for either. Thoughts and suggestions welcome. = )

How about [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] and you have both nicknames in one! I know a little girl named [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] and her family calls her [name_u]Elia[/name_u], but [name_f]Liana[/name_f] also works well.

[name_u]Elia[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] and [name_u]Elia[/name_u] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] are cute

That is a hard decision! I love both of those names.

Liana [name_f]Corisande[/name_f]

[name_u]Elia[/name_u] [name_f]Isaline[/name_f]/Isabelle

LMK what you think!!

I love both !!! I think I would go with [name_f]Liana[/name_f] but I love the suggestion of [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] so you can keep both

Liana [name_u]Harper[/name_u]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Marine[/name_f]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_u]Hale[/name_u]

Elia [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_u]Elia[/name_u] [name_u]Anne[/name_u]
[name_u]Elia[/name_u] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]

Both are lovely but my vote would go to [name_f]Liana[/name_f]. I work in elementary schools and I feel like [name_u]Elia[/name_u] (while lovely) might get lost in the world of [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]/Ella (plus the popularity of [name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f] and it’s variety of spellings) where as I don’t think I’ve met a little [name_f]Liana[/name_f].

Love [name_f]Liana[/name_f]!

Love [name_u]Elia[/name_u]! So pretty!

I know a little [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] and she’s adorable so I’d probably vote for that and then use both [name_u]Elia[/name_u] and [name_f]Liana[/name_f] as nns

Both are beautiful! I prefer [name_u]Elia[/name_u] :slight_smile:

I like [name_f]Liana[/name_f] a lot

[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_u]Willow[/name_u]

Eliana is a great suggestion, I would go for it! If not, I have never seen [name_u]Elia[/name_u] before and I really like it!

I should have divulged this earlier, but we have already decided against Eliana. I love the name so much but I have a close friend named Eliana and as much as I love her, I don’t really want to name our daughter after her. Love all your suggestions though! We’re feeling like Liana Quinn or Elia Harper might be contenders, but we’re still wavering back and forth.

Elia is a lovely name but might be lost in a sea of Ellas these days. I’d go with [name_f]Liana[/name_f].
