  • "My name is Alaina, pronounced uh-LAYN-uh, Sheree. Alaina means (cheerful) and Sheree means (dear/darling). So, you know, Cheerful Darling! In my experience people rarely mispronounce it. I'm often told that it's a beautiful/pretty name. As far as nick names go my siblings sometimes call me Laina/Naina, and my parents (used) to call me Laina-babes."

I think it's beautiful, and if people can't pronounce it, they need to go back and learn basic phonics. (I once had someone insist my name was "allah-eena") I'd love to know other middle names with Alaina...mine's Suzanne." Jan. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I LOVE my name and the way it's spelled. But I've had many problems with people mispronouncing it, instead saying Alana, Aliana, anything other than Alaina. I even tell them it's like Elaine, just with a's in place of the e's. Sometimes that still doesn't work. However, I wouldn't change my name for anything and I've always received compliments about it." Feb. 11, 2008: Report as inappropriate

I love my name and I love how its very uncommon yet beautiful." Jun. 25, 2006: Report as inappropriate
