Reply to: Re: Names from other countries by Agata
I had a friend in Spain named Aitana, and at the time it was a fairly rare name-at least in the south (she would have been born in the late '70s). I believe Aitana is the name of a mountain in Spain. The reason she was named this...from what I remember... is that someone (I forget who) was exiled from the country, and as he was leaving, the last part of Spain he saw was the mountain "Aitana". (Either that, or he was returning and he saw the mountain). I hope that helps, it's been about 15 years since I last saw her. :)
