Lian: unisex baby name meaning and popularity

Lian

The meaning of this name is a hard one to pin down. First, its similarity to the ever-popular Liam means that parents could have just changed a letter to make it a little more unique. Some sources say it's Chinese - but can't seem to agree on whether it means "snow," "lotus flower," or "graceful willow." And some say it's a variation of Liana, which is a botanical name referring to a type of vine. So basically, you get to decide which one you like best!
