Comments and insights on the name Elana: | Edit

This is my daughter's name. We pronounce it Ee-lon-ah The middle part sounding like you turn "on" the light. We get a lot of compliments, however a lot of mispronunciation with people wanting to use a short 'e' sound instead of the long 'E' even after just hearing it. But that's any name.
