Iljana is a feminine Slavic name whose origins are somewhat elusive. Possibly carrying two Hebrew roots, Iljana has two incredibly faithful meanings. As a form of Eliana, Iljana inherits the definition “my God has answered me.” Iljana may also derive from Elijah, meaning “my God is Yahweh.” Some sources suggest that Iljana is also a Swedish and Finnish name meaning “sun.” No matter which of Iljana’s mysterious origins call to you, this lyrical appellation is ideal for the tiny tot who fills your world with light.
