Eliana is a feminine name of largely Hebrew origin, though it bares compelling ties to the myths of ancient Greece. Its Hebrew roots place Eliana as a variation of Eliyanah, sharing its meaning "God has answered." Yet there is much to suggest that Eliana may have a different calling. Following a Latin route, Eliana finds a likeness to the Latin name Aeliana, meaning "sun," derived from the Roman family name Aelius. Closely related to the Greek word helios, Eliana emerges as a reference to the ancient moon goddess's brother. Personifying the sun itself, Helios would ride across the skies on a chariot of fire, bringing dawn to dusk. Whether Eliana decides to follow a destiny marked by a higher being or blaze a trail of their own is a choice only they can make—an exciting honor indeed!
