How would you pronounce this name?

Liliana


"I" know how it is pronounced and even if you do, too, how do you think the majority of people who read it would pronounce it? Do you think they would say "Lili-ahna" or "Lili-ann-a"?

This will be the name of our baby if she is indeed a girl like the u/s said. The reason I am asking is that another of our daughters is named "Graciela" and people are forever pronouncing it as "Gracie-ella". It is actually pronounced "Grah-see-ella" and is a spanish form of Grace. I think I will be equally annoyed if people pronounce Liliana in an incorrect way. LOL!

Thanks! Yes, it is pronounced "Lili-ahna". However, since people seem to get "Gracie-ella" from "Graciela", I am wondering how often she is going to be called "Lili- ann-a". My husband is Mexican which is why we are chosing another hispanic name. It seems to be mostly the people who don't speak speak Spanish who mispronounce the names. But, I still don't see how, whether you speak spanish or not, you can get "Gracie-ella" from Graciela. LOL!! Before she was born, my dad was being a smart ***** and saying that people were going to call her "Gracie-la".

Thanks for all of you input!
