Comments for the name Alana

Comments for ALANA:

I (and about half of the people who try to say it) pronounce my name a-LAH-na. Personally I like it better this way, but maybe that's just because it's my name.

My friend likes to pronounce Alana Ah-LON-ah.

I have a very eastern European last name so my parents decided to go with a similar first name. I pronounce it uh-LAY-nuh. I like it much better than the traditional pronunciation.

I have always pronounced this name as a-LON-ah instead of a-LAN-ah. I think it is prettier with the soft a.

This name is okay, but it should be pronounced uh-LAH-nuh. If you're going to pronounce it uh-LAY-nuh then you should have just named your kid Elaina.

This is my name. I love it, but I hate when people don't pronounce it right. I say mine a-LAY-na. I don't like a-LAN-a or a-LAWN-a at all, but that's what people say to me all the time. I wish my parents would have spelled it Alaina or Alayna so people would know how to say it.

I know a girl with this name, but it's pronounced like El-aine-a.

This is my cousin's name and it is pronounced Ah-lah-Na. I think the Ah-lan-a version is a bit more Americanized, as I've never heard it said that way in Australia.

What I find weird about my cousin, is the fact our grandad and uncle are both Alan. So unless my aunt did it after them, which I doubt, I find it a bit odd.
