  • "My name?s Raina, pronounced Ray-na and meaning queen. I love it! Whenever someone asks, ?Hey Raina, how do you spell your name?? I say, ?Rain with an a?. I always get complimented for my name. Raina is unique enough that your probably the only person you know with your name, unlike an Emily or an Elizabeth, but it?s common enough that people pronounce it right 60% if the time. I?m still waiting for the day I meet someone with my name. My only complaint is that when someone pronounces it wrong, they usually say Rana, which kind of offends me because I?m pretty sure that means frog in Spanish." Jun. 8, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Raena Jade. I preferred this spelling as I wanted her to be able to use the nickname 'Rae'. I chose the name as it has the same meaning as my mam's name, Kathleen, in Yiddish (pure/clean) but it's still very much her own individual name and not just a variation of my mam's name. I love the fact it's a very multicultural name :-) :-)" Jun. 30, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Reina ,I am 55 yrs old.I was named after my mom who was born in Puerto Rico on Three kings day.In Christian bible the Three Kings visited Jesus when he was born. Her family decided that she was their Queen. Their REINA.. As for the mispronunciations, misspellings and comments like"oh that's different" ive received..lets just say that over the years ive heard it All. Ive learned not to get angry..The different versions of spelling Reina are nice too. While I like very much the way my great grandma spelled it for my mom then me its really the meaning that counts."

  • "My 6 yr old daughter's name is Raina, and I love it. Didn't even really consider it until the end of my pregnancy, but it was a name that both her Dad and I liked and it just seemed to suit her once she was born. I got the spelling from a girl we both knew for growing up, and I liked the organic nature of it. I really love all the meanings of the name aos well. I am part German, and Raina means strong & mighty, which fits her as she was a tiny preemie. I'm also part French and her Dad is Mexican and its meaning (queen) in both languages. I didn't know it's Hindu meaning, but that is cool too. I love how she is in 2nd grade and has only met one other Raina (though spelled Reina), and that was just briefly at a store. There is no one at her school with her name. Her full name is Raina Rivers Ruby Duran (Ruby was my Grandma's name). The Rivers is something my Husband was going to name her if she'd been a boy, and he likes the name so much (despite my reservations). I know the full name sounds a little hippy, but I love it, and it definitely is unique." Nov. 6, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Raina and I love it. It is pronounced like its spelled and I would always have to tell people it is "rain with an a" so they could spell it and say it right. Growing up people would say and spell it like the Spanish version. Or pronounce it Rina (like rhino). One of my teachers from India told me with the spelling and two dots above the "I" that is should be pronounced like Rina. But I don't really know.
