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.

Named my daughter Alayna in 1998. Came up with it as a derivative of Alan, her father's name. Nice to see it is so popular now...I still think it is a beautiful name!
I like my name a lot...I think its cool that its of Hawaiian origin. Alayna is by far the best spelling of this name! My friends usually call me lain or lay lay. I think It's so cute!:)
I am Alayna Marie and my mother created the name while she was in high school in 1969 and when she had me, my birth was the first official documentation of my name. I was born in 1974. She is now 77 years old and is in awe of how popular the name has become. My name is pronounced A-lay-na. Some pronounce uh-lay-na.
Alayna is an absolutely gorgeous name. I find that most girls with this name have are particularily beautiful or cute. It's an uncommon, but not unusual name. LOVE IT.
My name is Alayna. Only met one person in my life with it. Full name Alayna Jeannine... about every person I have met, compliments my name, yes people say it wrong spell it wrong - but every English teacher is school said it and spelled right!
Alayna is my daughters name, and it is perfect, I lOVE it! It is perfect, elegant, and everyone else always comments on how pretty it is!
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.
I NAMED MY DAUGHTER ALAYNA BACK IN 2011 AND MOST DO NOT PRONOUNCE HER NAME CORRECTLY, LIKE THE OThe's SAY, 'LAY' IS EXACTLY HOW It's SUPPOSE TO SOUND -AH-LAY-NAH. SHE LOVES HER NAME BUT GETS DISCOURAGED WHEN SHE CANNOT FIND HER NAME ON VACATION TRINKETS =)
So my name is Alayna. Not many people have my name. However i've met Elena, Elina, Alana, Alanna. What I would like to know is how people manage to pronounce it Alana.I don't understand it. Lay is pronounced exactly how It's spelled.
My baby girls name is Alayna Elizabeth! She is 9 months old and I get compliments all the time on her name!! She is one beautiful little baby girl!
My youngest daughter is named Alayna Marie....noticed two other posts with the'same or similar name! She is only 2 and we sometimes call her Laney for short. She is named after her grandma Elaine...we decided on Alayna because our other two daughters are A names too!
My granddaughter is Alayna Marie. It'sounds like music to my ears
My name is Alayna and all the time people call me Alana instead:( but I love my name, when I was a little girl I didn't because it was unique, but now I love it. Well maybe cause 13 year olds understand things better. I am from Canada and I have never met anyone with the'same name as me.
