With the crazy love parents have for Ella, it’s only natural that similar names would crop up as alternatives. Elliana is a spelling variant of Eliana, a name that’s particularly popular in Spain and Portugal. The name with the double-L spelling was a late bloomer that didn’t show up on the US baby-name charts until 2005. Her equally lovely-sounding sisters include Iliana and Illianna.
