* Ilia is a rare female name, a derivative of the Russian male name [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilya Ilya], which itself is the Russian rendering of the Hebrew name Eliyahu and its Greek form, Elias (Elijah or Elias in English, Eli for short). As a variant of Ilya, the given name Ilia sees a degree of unisex use, used as a feminine version of the male-only Ilya, and occassionally as a male name, merely a variation of Ilya. As a female name, Ilia appears very rarely in a few other Slavic languages, with slightly altered ortography (e.g. Iľa in Slovak, now considered a rare and old-fashioned name). The surname Volyova, with a feminine suffix, seems to be closely related to certain real world Ukrainian surnames.
