We are naming our daughter Ariana. I'm still trying to choose which pronunciation to go with.. I think I like Ahr-ee-ah-na the best. Or maybe Ahr-ee-ana, that way she could go with Ari (not Airy) or Ana for short. I LOVE the name!

08/01/2023 06:30:56

My name is Alaina, pronounced uh-LAYN-uh, Sheree. Alaina means (cheerful) and Sheree means (dear/darling). So, you know, Cheerful Darling! In my experience people rarely mispronounce it. I'm often'told that It's a beautiful/pretty name. As far as nick names go my siblings sometimes call me Laina/Naina, and my parents (used) to call me Laina-babes.

07/15/2023 14:49:36

I used to hate my name as a child because it was usually pronounced wrong and ALWAYS spelled wrong. I now appreciate the uniqueness of my name and think It's beautiful! I'm seven months pregnant with a girl and am desperately searching for a name I love as much as my own. My middle name is Janel

05/25/2023 20:04:10

This is my daughters name. She will be two in a couple of weeks. I love this name but wanted to spell it differently and didn't want any question on how to pronounce it. It'suits our daughter perfectly :)

05/25/2023 05:04:52

My name is alaina,i hate it. There are no good nicknames for my name. I dont really like to be called laniey,thats what my childhood nick name was. Or lu-bug, or laniey-bug, I liked them as a kid but i dont anymore.

04/12/2023 23:09:52

I named my first born Alaina. It is unusual but not weird. We have had a big laugh over a newspaper article that'said parents who chose this name'should be asked what they were smoking at the time! No way! It's a beautiful name for a beautiful young woman (born in '85)

03/18/2023 15:59:24

I love my name. Yes, some people do pronounce it wrong. Its pronounced [Uh-Lay-Nuhh]. No, I dont meet anyone else with this name. Very occasionally, but never face to face. I get jealous when people have my name. I always feel like it was mine first. Ive met youngsters with my name, maybe thats why Ive felt that way. I love my name and I love how its very uncommon yet beautiful.

03/01/2023 21:57:00

I LOVE my name and the way It's spelled. But i've had many problems with people mispronouncing it, instead saying Alana, Aliana, anything other than Alaina. I even'tell them It's like Elaine, just with a's in place of the e's. Sometimes that'still doesn't work. However, I wouldn't change my name for anything and i've always received compliments about it.

02/27/2023 06:45:50

I love my name. My dad wanted an Elaine and my mom wanted an Alanna...I became Alaina. Born in 1986, I don't know that I ever met another person my age with the name. I think It's beautiful, and if people can't pronounce it, they need to go back and learn basic phonics. (I once had someone insist my name was "allah-eena") I'd love to know other middle names with Alaina...mine's Suzanne.

01/13/2023 05:32:48

Alaina is a gorgeous name, how do u pronounce correctly

08/03/2022 08:45:00

My sister's name. She was born in 1975. Mom made it up by modifying the French man's name, "Alain". So that may be the'starting point.

03/11/2022 21:48:54
