Alina first debuted in Us popularity charts in 1975. It took it almost a decade to earn a permanent spot in these charts. In the past 25 years, Alina has experienced a slow uptrend. In 2007, Alina earned a spot among the top 200 most popular female names in the U.S. Alina is very rare among English speakers and that is why it sounds very exotic and fresh when it is chosen for a girl in these countries. It is very unique for American girls because it is very different from the Judeo-Christian names that usually dominates this county. As it was mentioned before Alina means the bearer of the light and one could argue that its uniqueness adds a certain light and glow to the charts.
