I am confuse with correct spelling RAYNA OR RAINA❤️

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I like my name... It's different and it can be nicknamed so many ways. Rayn, ray, rayray, etc. any way I love it and its fun to use even if no one call me by a nickname. (-<) <3 :-)

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Rayna my parents named me this because they liked the name. The'spelling was choose because my mom said I was her Ray of sunshine. People call me Ray and everyone I'meet say they love my name because is It'so pretty. I really like it too!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I used to be called "Re" (the musical note D) as It'sounded like the first syllable of my name.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My daughter name is Raayna .I proud to say my daughter's name is Raayna. I loved this name because she is our Queen....

12/27/2023 07:02:40

I named my 10 year old Rayna because in Hebrew it means, "song of the Lord" and I am a singer. The'spanish version Reina means "queen". I think her name is very unique and very uncommon. It coins her personality!She loves her name as well and often look for anything that has her name on it.

12/08/2023 16:37:38

I called my daughter Rayna because my husband was Ray and my name was Ann so this includes both our names for our beautiful daughter. It is a slight variation of Reina which is from the name Regina 'Queen'.

11/29/2023 06:19:58

I named my daughter Rayne back in 2006. I am a big Star Trek fan and on the orignal show there was a caracter name Rayna she was only on one show but I fell in love with the name.

11/21/2023 16:07:18

Another Rayna, here. Named so due to my mother's middle name being 'Renee' and my father's being 'Ray' ( seems a lot of ours have supposedly "made up" / "combined", huh❤️ ). It was supposed to be spelt 'Reyn❤️' but ended up as so due to my mother. I didn't particularly like my name growing up ( being seventeen currently, so born in '98 ) but have since grown used to it, still not really IN LOVE with it, but It'suits me, I s'pose. i've heard that it is Spanish in decent, as well as Bulgarian, and somewhere said Celtic, I think❤️ So It'seems fairly wide in origin, so I would think it wouldn't be completely foreign in a lot of places, so a bonus there. I don't think anyone has ever felt the need for a nickname, unfortunately. I am rather partial to Rayn, however.

11/15/2023 06:42:42

I plan on naming my daughter Rayna. After all the baby name'searching I have done, I just keep coming back to this name. I am suprised it is not as popular as It'should be. It's so pretty and unique!

10/30/2023 11:00:26

My name is Rayna too. My mother loved Star Trek. The episode Mud had robots named Rayna 1,2,3...That is how she named me.

10/30/2023 06:18:18

My name is Rayna and I was born Jan 1948.As a child I hated my name because I was the only person that I had ever known with it.Children don't like to be too different do they.But as I grew older I guess I grew into it because now I love it.

10/25/2023 22:33:44

Hi, It'seems that I am the first and original. Mom named me Reina then at two years of age she changed it to Rayna. I was born 1980.

09/20/2023 04:06:46

My daughter is 2 and we named her Rayna. I love that it means queen and it is unique. I do have to tell people how to spell it. We also call her Ray for a ray of sunshine!

09/14/2023 04:24:04

I am a Rayna and when i was younger I didn't like it but now i love my name, its so pretty and unique, my mom was gonna call me some other name, but when she'saw my red hair, she changed it.

08/17/2023 01:37:56

My name is Rayna and im 16. its a very inter'sting name to live with. Personally, its kind of annoying when people spell or pronounce it wrong, but thats what happens with a sort of exotic name. I think the name is okay, but not on me. Really think about this name before using it because its very exotic if youre into that, but it also depends how you spell it too.

07/21/2023 00:08:16

I named my daughter "Rayna", explicitly because my wife and I are metal music fans. We named her after our favorite band's bass player ;) When we found out we were pregnant we both I'mediately said "Rayna" (She wanted to spell it Raina, however...)

05/13/2023 23:17:28

I'm another Rayna. My dads name is Ray, so my parents wanted to add that in there. They actually thought they made it up. i've met just a few other Rayna's. I love the'spelling 'Raina'. When I was young I didn't like my name. I wanted a 'normal' name, like Nicole or Amy or Stacey. But now I love it. I get a lot of compliments on how pretty it is and love It's uniqueness.

04/12/2023 03:28:26

My name is Rayna. I have never met someone with the'same spelling. It'sounds like "Ray-na" People often spell it wrong, but I attribute that to the rise of Spanish around the region I live in. It'sounds just like the'spanish "reina" which means queen, and often people want to spell it that way.

03/31/2023 18:44:42

Hi! My name is Rayna. My father named me Rayna, because of my grandpa's 1st name "Raymond", and also my other grandpa's middle name was Raymond. I didn't like the name at first, because it didn't mean anything 2 me... But i realize that it came from someone special and it has a special meaning in spanish, "Queen!" I have only heard once of someone in my town speaking that they have a daughter named Rayna, but it wasn't spelled the'same. And she no longer lives in my town, so I'm the only Rayna here, and It's great, because now i know for sure if people are refering to me and not another Rayna. People use to often pronounce and spell it wrong, but since im the only one here (with one way to spell it) and It's sounds just how it looks, i think It's getting a lil' easier for them. I love my name because It's unique and that's what im all about...!

03/09/2023 04:13:34

I'm another Rayna. i've been curious about the reason that I was named Rayna and found that it meant Song of God, and my family is full of devoted Christians. Many people i've met have pronounced it "Ray-anna" or "Ranya" (I have no idea how), but I still like my name.

02/19/2023 05:23:06

My name is Rayna. My mother named me this because my brothe's were Richard and Randy and she wanted her daughter 's name to begin with an R! I was born in 1969 and have never met another Rayna

02/18/2023 11:27:28

My daughters name is Reign, which Isn't in any of the books, but its similar to this name. She is 9 now and we actually know a lot of girls and boys with similar names. Bummer

02/14/2023 09:17:56

I am a Rayna. I didn't like it much growning up because I was the only one. But now as an adult, I love it. It's original. When people talk about Rayna, no-one has to wonder which one!

01/28/2023 20:50:34

I spell it Raeyna and pronounce the'same as Reina. Yes many people spell it wrong and pronounce it "Ray Ann"

01/27/2023 11:20:22

I named my first daughter Rayna Elizabeth in 2017. Stole the name from a friends child. Love it! There is only one other Rayna I know of and she was named after my daughter. I originally wanted to spell it Raina, but my husband wanted Rayna. Such a great name that I had trouble picking a named for our other daughter. Love that its unique but not wierd

01/25/2023 23:11:28

It's pretty and feminine and at the'same time, very practical; easy to pronounce and spell. Names that are more than two syllables almost always shorten'to various nicknames, so the two syllable names seem to work best.

12/29/2022 02:00:22

I love my name It's so awesome and different from other people's names

12/26/2022 19:55:50

My name is Rayna and when i go to school many teache's pronounce my name wrong, and don't now how to spell it. I used to hate it but now I like when'they can't pronounce it or spell it because it makes me feel like my name is unique and I have only met one girl with the'same name ( and Spelling) as mine. I LOVE my name because I like when in class I don't have to always put my last name cause there is only 1 Rayna. And you pronounce it "Ray-Nah". It is a spanish name that means "queen".

My Daughter's name is Rayna Rayna was born in 1997 and is 20 now and most people tell her her name is beautiful and some know it means Queen which is surprising to me - she is my Queen- I knew a girl named Raina when I was a girl and I knew that name was going to be my daughters name ~ Roxanna

Her middle is Margaret which is both our mom's middle names. we liked that it also meant Queen and our second daughter is Sarah-Kathryn and she is our princess. Our third daughter is Talya (which i've already commented on this site about)

I have a neice named Rayna. She is just about to turn four this year. I wanted her to know about her name- the identity she would be carrying along, the rest of her life which when selected by parents or elders, the person, the'selves have no choice left but to accept it. But when you know the reason as to why you were named so, its meaning changes altogether and you start to love your tag. Hope she grows up to love it. Place: India

10/24/2021 01:23:06

I'm another Rayna. i've gotten a lot of weird expieriences from my name, such as people asking if it is made up, or telling them what it means. I do think it is a very pretty name, but I live in an area where you have like 8 girls named Alexis in a class of 30 people, so I'm always the odd one out. The name fits my personality, though. I'm the queen, and my name even says so!

10/22/2021 17:21:36

My name is Rayna. My mom thought she was having a boy and wanted to call him Raynald but then I came along and she dropped the ld. Nothing ever had my name on it! In the past 40 odd years I have never met another Rayna so I always thought that I was the only one. When'the internet came along I checked it out and WOW there were more girls with my name! My name is unique like me!

07/05/2021 00:54:18

I have a daughter we named her Raynah!! I love that name It'suits her even'though she's only 9 weeks old!!!
