  1. We chose our daughter’s name because it means “my God answered”. We went through 5 years of infertility before we received the gift of her life.

  2. I was born in the late 50’s and I love my name, now. For years I was called anything from Leona to Linda!! But now I just smile and say, it’s Liana ?

  3. Liana is my first born, @ 35 years I was not sure if I will have a baby and I prayed about the child, so the name Liana means God has answered my prayer.

  4. I’m a tree! ? this was cool.

  5. I did not know this before and i thought that my name is
    Latin.
    I never really knew the meaning of it but i like it 🙂

  6. i think this is cazy like i don’t no this

  7. My husband mentioned the name, I liked it. Then my sister and I were searching meanings of names, Liana means “God has answered” in Hebrew. We battled infertility and with natural support from an amazing physician we conceived our sweet tiny girl! Answered prayers.

  8. The meaning: God has answered ?

    While Liana is our 3rd child it was not an easy road getting to our sweet little rainbow angel. We experienced a couple heart breaking losses along the journey but God is faithful and we are in awe of His sovereignty. We welcome Liana Joy with love. ?

      • My name is Liana and I was born in the 1960’s and at that time there were not to many Liana’s.

        • I love my name Liana and I ? my Mother who named me Liana. May my Mother RIP. What I love about my name is that it has a beautiful ? meaning in Hebrew in which Liana means God Answer’s and let me tell you God in heaven has never let me down ???? .I have a wonderful heart and I think more of other people’s needs more then mine as I am very giving and very grateful for everything and everyone. I don’t like to judge and it hurts me that people are quick to judge and point finger’s. I have a great big heart and my husband tells me that everyday.
