Meaning of Alaina

Meaning of name Alaina:

Alaina is the feminine form of the French masculine name, Alain, which is the equivalent of Alan. Alan's name originated in Brittany, an area of ​​northwestern France, which is clearly of Celtic origin, and was brought to the British Isles through the Norman Conquest. Celtic etymology of the name comes from the word 'alp, ail' meaning 'rock' which can also be found in modern Irish 'Ailin' meaning 'little rock.' Related perhaps is the Gaelic meaning 'joyful and harmonious' or the Scottish Gaelic “alainn” meaning 'beautiful.' There were an early Saint Alan pair from Brittany and Cornwall who probably influenced the use of the name in the Middle Ages. William the Conqueror's army at the Battle of Hastings (1066) was made up largely of men from Britain. One of his closest allies, Alan, the Earl of Brittany, was awarded large tracts of land in England for his involvement. Alan (French: Alain; Welsh: Alun) and Allan/Allen have always been quite popular names in Brittany and the British Isles since medieval times. Due to its popularity, female versions of the name were soon to be developed. Alaina is the French example of this. Alana is English.

Popularity

Alaina has only been on the US charts since 1978, so it has only been in use in the US for less than 40 years. The name has been increasing in use as the years go by, albeit slowly. The name is experiencing the peak of its popularity right now as it dances closer to the Top 200 list of most commonly used girl names. Not yet super-popular, Alaina is in no danger of being overused. It is also one of the least thought of French names. French, yes. But as the French sounds like names like Chloé or Camille? Not quite. Also, the spelling of Alaina makes it difficult to pronounce. This is something to consider. Your child may have to go through people's life correction. It's not a big deal for some, but for others it is. Nonetheless, Alaina is a beautiful name as its Gaelic meaning suggests.

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.
