Personal experiences with the name Liana: | Edit

My name is liana. And I've only met one other person with my name. My parents chose it because it came from a Greek name (my heritage). It is an awesome name and really unique. My mn is Stephanie so it balanced out the syllables. Only down side. Everyone at the start thinks your name is - Alana. :/

My lovely girlfriend is named Liana. Apparently no one knows how to pronounce her name...because they're stupid.
