Albina is also a Russian name as well as Italian. It isn't extremely popular, especially with girl's born now, but it was a fairly common name for girl's born in the 20's-40's.

I don't like "Al" or "Bean" or "Beanie" for a girl's nickname. "Albie" is ok but because this name is just way too close to the spelling for "albino", I couldn't ever saddle a child with it.

I love this name, but it's very close to Albania, and I find that funny because I have Albanian ancestry.

My name is Albina and I'm Ukrainian. I know of 3 other people who share my name, met one in real life. The other girls tend to shorten their names to Alya, but I never had it shortened.

I've had to deal with a lot of mispronunciation, so it's pretty much a habit to spell it out right away. The worst example of mispronunciation was a teacher that called me Albania all year long. I've been called Albino, Alvina, Albeeno, pronounced as Al-Bye-na, Albinutsa (little bee in Romanian, I think?)

My mother is Albina and I love her so much. The name means 'white light' and that's what my mother is.
