"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 immediately said "Rayna" (She wanted to spell it Raina, however...)" Aug. 9, 2018:

"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, themselves 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" Jan. 28, 2009:
"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...!" Apr. 28, 2008:
"I am Rayna .I am from India. My father named me Rayna ,as he liked this name very much,ofcourse not knowing the meaning.As i grew up i used to come acros people who used to love my name and finding it interesting they used to ask me the meaning,and i used to there without any answer. But later as i grew up i started to search for the meanig of my name, and it reallly amazed me that meaning of this name is 'queen'.Its actually intersting and lovely to have such different name.I am in love with my name ."

"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'.

Jan. 26, 2006:
"My Daughter's name is Rayna
Rayna was born in 1985 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" Jan. 15, 2006:
"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." Aug. 15, 2005:

"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." Feb. 28, 2016:
"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." Sep. 7, 2015:
"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." Feb. 27, 2015:
"My name is Rayna.All the teachers use to pronounce my name as Rayan.But they learnt it. Now I feel special to know I am the only Rayna at my school.I am so glad my name means "QUEEN".Yay!" Feb. 18, 2015:
"I love my name! Not everyone can ever really have the name Rayna! Even though it's not popular,I guess it used to be! And I love my name even more than I used to now that I know I'm not the only person with my name!" Dec. 18, 2014:
"Hello, I'm a Rayna (except spelt Raynar). I'm only fourteen and I have never met another person with the same name in my life. I'm an Aussie and ever since I was little, I've been asked where my name is from. My parents dont even know. SO HELLO TO ALL OTHER RAYNA'S IN THE WORLD TODAY!" Aug. 30, 2013:
"hi i named my daughter raayna i like name its different" Mar. 4, 2013:
"My name is Rayna. My mother named me this because my brothers were Richard and Randy and she wanted her daughter 's name to begin with an R! I was born in 1957 and have never met another Rayna" Jan. 26, 2013:
"My name is Rayna and im 16. its a very interesting 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." Nov. 29, 2012:
"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!" Jan. 7, 2012:
"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!" Sep. 22, 2011:
"I have a daughter we named her Raynah!! I love that name it suits her even though she's only 9 weeks old!!!" Oct. 13, 2010:
"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." Feb. 8, 2010:
"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'." Jan. 24, 2010:
"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 1968." Nov. 19, 2009:
"We have a one year old named Rayna. I do have to tell people how to spell it but I think it is a beautiful name. I have also found that it means mighty in Scandinavian and I found another sight that listed the meaning as God's song." Apr. 5, 2008:
"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" Jun. 25, 2007:
"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!" Feb. 1, 2007:
"My name is Rayna and when i go to school many teachers 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"."
