"My name is Dayana and I'm 15 years old. I have always LOVED LOVED LOVED my name. Yeah, people spell it wrong and it gets on my nerve, but that doesn't mean it's gonna affect how much I like my name. Everyone pronounces my name like "Diana". It's just the way that everyone has always pronounced it, so I kind of got used to it. I'm part Mexican so my name is pronounced "Dah-Yah-Nah" in spanish :) I get a lot of nicknames like DayDay, Danaynay, Dayz, I couldn't be happier with my name ❤" Feb. 13, 2015:

I know two or three others that go by the same name that were born before the year 2000; actually we were all born in the 80's. People usually don't know how to pronounce the name but I usually just tell them to say Diana to get it over with because it's too much work to get people to say my name right." May. 28, 2006:

"YO this name is soo pretty. It supposed to be pronounced as Diana not day-ona" Oct. 11, 2007:
"Not to many people have the name Dayana spelled out with a "y." I went thru 22 years until I finally came a across another Dayana in college. It is more popular in South America. Its pronounces as Diana but in spanish it is with a "y" b/c in spanish regular Diana is said differently. The distinction in spelling is major in spanish b/c it makes it a different name vs. in English. Overall, I love my name its unique and I believe fits me well!" Mar. 14, 2007:
"I am planning to named my baby girl Dayana. I consider it is beautiful, different, and sophisticated. I like because is different and is not a traditional name that everybody has on the street. But even more, what I really liked is the meaning of the name Dayana, which is light and hope." Jan. 3, 2007:
