Comments for ALONA:

I am using this name in a story I'm writing. It's not my favorite (I much prefer Havilah and Hodel as far as feminine Jewish names go), but it works for the character because it is the feminine form of Alon, which means "oak tree". Just FYI. ;)

Not the worst Jewish name out there, but in English-speaking countries, this name sounds too much like the word 'alone'.

Oh, and even worse, it sounds like ''a loner'' with a ghetto or New York Jew pronunciation. Not to be used in America. In Britain, the word 'loner' is pretty much pronounced like ''lonah'' anyway, so certainly not to be used in Britain, Australia, or New Zealand.

Often used as a Hebrew sounding variation of the Russian Alyona, same way as Yuri is changed to Uri.
