"My name is Shaina (pronounced SHAY-NA). I personally love my name, but most teachers I had in school would never pronounce it correctly. Many times, people have also spelled my name Shayna with a "y" not an "i" (I like it better with the i), but overall I love my name. Also my middle name is Naomi which flows great with Shaina."

"My name is Shaina and is pronounced "Shine-ah" and everyone gets it wrong, even the spelling. Most people think "shy-ann-ah", "shay-nah", or "she-nah". I have never met anyone with the same name but my friend has a coworker with the same spelt name as me but pronounced as "shay-nah". My friend likes to call me "shay-shay" I hated it at first but I don't mind it now. I love my name and I do know it means beautiful!" Oct. 7, 2018:
"I named my youngest daughter, born in 1991, Shaina. I wasn't sure what spelling to pick, but took time to write out her whole name, in cursive and print, and felt that spelling looked best. She's always loved her name, but we have found a number of people call her Shania (like the singer). She was the most amazing dancer but has moved on into cars and racing. Very unique personality for a unique name. I love it." Nov. 20, 2016:
