Alayna Name Meaning

Historical origin and etymology

Alayna is a girl’s name. It first appeared in the United States in the late 20th century. There are many probable origins for it. First, it is said that it is the feminized version of the masculine name “Alan” which is from Gaelic roots meaning both rock and beautiful. Second, it may have appeared from the name “Alana”; again, came from a Gaelic term that means “O child”.

Finally, Alayna can come from Elaine and Ellen; both of them are the anglicized versions of the name “Helen” which means “ray or sunbeam”.

It seems like that Alayna took the name “Elaina” and then, changed it to a more famous “ah” prefix and after that, respelled it to Alayna. This is the name that has passed many steps for the formation and that means ruck, beautiful, sunbeam, and darling.

We named our second daughter Fawn. She was born in 1999 and while we've met a couple of other girls with her name, she has the distinction of having a very unique and beautiful name. There were times when she was younger that'she wasn't as fond of it (kids can find anything in a name to make fun of), but now that'she's older, she loves it. I'm surprised how few girls named Fawn there really are.
