It's a very interesting and rare name. I love obscure names like this.

The name's Americanized pronunciation is often "Al-veye-na" with a long "i".

This is my grandmother's name, and she/we have always pronounced it Al-vye-na, with a long I. I love it, so cute and quaint!

I find it hideous. It sounds very old-fashioned, and like the name of some old and unattractive character in a fantasy movie.

This is my middle name. My mother named me after a favorite uncle whose middle name was Alvin. She pronounced it Al-vye-na, which I greatly prefer over Al-vee-na. I do get people calling me Elvira instead, and singing the Oak Ridge Boys popular 1980's song to me, not fun.

I know someone who has Alvina as a middle name, it is pronounced Al-vi-na, with a long i.
I prefer this to Al-vee-na.

This is a beautiful, unique name. It's one of those girl names that ages well. I certainly wouldn't mind if this was my name. :) Interestingly, I've heard this name also has Arabic origins (written as الوينا), though not I'm entirely sure if this is true and if so, what exactly is the Arabic meaning.
