"When it comes to my name I have never complained about it, to be honest the name itself is really pretty if it?s pronounced properly, the only negative thing about it is people tend to misspell/mispronounce it quite often, saying ?Pauline, Polina, Paule? even though those names are lovely I?d appreciate if they would just say it correctly."

"I like my name, it?s unique and sounds quite pretty, other people don?t see to like it though and that makes me kinda sad :(" Jun. 6, 2019:
"I was named after my great grandmother. I didn?t appreciate my name as a kid and people often tried to change it to Pauline or Paula. As an adult I appreciate having an older, less common, Spanish family name. It is unique yet recognizable." Feb. 20, 2018:
"rawr its totally awesome!! i dont meet a lot of Paulina ppl!!" Oct. 5, 2010:
"I like the name Paulina pretty well. I know that it is very popular in Mexico. I heard of two singers with the name, Paulina Rubio, and Paulina Alvares, a cuban artist back in the early 1900s. I have not met anybody with the name. Pretty nice name." Aug. 7, 2010:
People always ask 'Do you mean "PaulinE"?'
Good for nicknames (Paul, Pauli, Lina [said Lena]) I like it. Polish in origin. In spanish Paulina translates to 'an offensive, anonymous letter' LOL." Mar. 3, 2009:

"I think that Pulaina is a pretty good name. It is not that popular of a name. I do not like the meaning of the name, it reminds me of something offensive when you translate the Spanish term. But I just like the name its self." Oct. 20, 2009:
"I'm complimented on my name alot but I dont like my name that much. I like how it's pronounced in spanish (Pa-oo-lee-na) but I hate how people call me in english. They say it like (PAUL-ina) as in Paul like the boys name, and I hate that name. I also hate when some foreign people say my name because they call me (PO-lina) Either way I rarely hear my name pronounced properly and I have since started introducing myself as my nickname."
