  • "I was born Christina, but had a hard time pronouncing it as a little girl and made everybody call me Nina. I grew up thinking that was my real name. I got teased a lot about it when we started learning About Columbus. I went back to Christina for awhile before truly embracing the awesomeness of Nina. Now as an adult I go exclusively by this name including building my business brand around it. Many times Nina is so memorable I do not have to use my last name. I like that it isn't popular and it is quirky. Growing up in southern America I have had my name pronounced nie-na and nin-na." May. 4, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Nina. I've never been thrilled about the name, it kind of bugs me because of the "EEEE" sound of it, plus it is just not that popular. But for uniqueness and originality, it has always scored high, and that goes with me because I am sort of a "black sheep" - a very one-of-a-kind type person who is like a square peg in a round hole - I am only liked by certain people, and I only like certain people. While I'm a 54-yr.-old female, my closest friends are men over the age of 60, and my husband is very intense, like I am. I don't like most women, as I find them catty and shallow - I only like deep topics and subjects, and thus deep conversations - but that could also be because I'm a Scorpio, not just because my name is Nina!...Glad to be able to post this - nice opportunity.

  • "My mom's name is Mina, and my parents decided to name me Nina (both rhyme with Christina). We're Persian, and both Mina and Nina are pretty common in Persian culture. As a child in elementary school, I was often called "The Nina, The Pinta, and The Santa Maria." However, The Nina is a mispronounciation of the Spanish word for little girl, which is spelled N I "ENYAY" A. I have been asked a couple times if my name is pronouced NINE-A. I've been taken aback both times. :) I didn't know that pronounciation existed, but one person who asked me said he had an ex-girlfriend whose name was pronounced NINE-A. Other nicknames I've been dubbed are "Nineh Cherry" as in the singer and Nina Bambina (bambina being the Italian word for little girl). All in all, I've enjoyed having a unique name. I can't imagine having the same name as 2 or 3 of my classmates or coworkers. I like being the only Nina, although I have met a few Ninas through the years. I recently met a German Nina, who is 30, and I was the first Nina she had ever met. :) One more thing. I recently read that Nina is a Russian nickname for the name "Antonina.""
