Alina Name Meaning

The origin of Alina Is still debatable. Some believe that it comes from Arabic and is related to “illustrious”. Alina is very popular among Germans and that’s why some other experts say it stems from “Adeline”, which is a diminutive of Adele.  In German, Adele means noble. Interestingly, people of Scotland believe that Alina is the male version of Alistair. Alistair is the Gaelic counterpart of Alexander.  In this version, it would mean defender of men. In Armenian, Alina means ‘bearer of light’. One thing that is common among all these versions is the noble theme. This name is not very common in English speaking countries. Its popularity is mostly in German speaking countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Lichtenstein. It is also very popular in Slavic nations such as Russia, Belarus, Slovenia, and Bosnia.

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.

I named my little girl Alynna (a-lynn-a)promounced this way but Aly for short. I created this name by combining the two names anna and lynn. My older girl I named her after her grandmothers Annet(Anna)and Linda(Lynn). I've looked on other sites and found the meanings were beautiful, and little stone. After I named her. Our family name is Stone. Meant to be I guess.

I named my daughter this, but we spell it Aleena. I've never heard of it until my then 7 yr old daughter suggested it from her fairy movie. Aleena is 17 mos and we get many comments on how beautiful her name is. We also call her Leena, or Leena Beena for fun.

growing up with a boy's name (Shawn), when I found out I was having a girl, I DEFINITELY wanted to give your a very feminine name. I had her in Germany and while visiting a baby'store, I found a headband with that name embroidered on it. I LOVED IT!! It was perfect!! We've met a few more Alina's here in Germany but not a whole lot. Some people try to call her Aliana but that doesn't bother me.. or her for that matter. Her name is perfect for her.. can't imagine naming her anything else!

well, i always asked my mom why she named me such a popular name. her answer has always been "i didn't know anyone by that name!" i like my name Amanda Nicole, but so many have it. when i had my little girl last year i named her Kynlee Grace which now I'meet a little girl every other day with that!! i knew Grace was popular but not Kynlee. Grace is a family name on my husband's side. well, i went through the whole Aman DUH thing b/c my teacher in 5th grade wouldn't allow anyone to say Duh anymore so they used my name...:( My best friend is also named Amanda but goes by Mandy. I don't have any nicknames any more.
