Ana Belén was a very popular combo for girls in Spain during the 70's and early 80's. I think its popularity stems from singer and actress Ana Belén.

My older sister's name is Belen. I myself am not a huge fan (it's a nice name) but whenever I tell anyone, they always compliment on how nice it sounds.

This name is so pretty! I love that it came from the city of Bethlehem=) I would pronounce it like (Bay Lynn).

Love it! Never hear this name before, but now that I have here's my impression: sincere, beautiful, and intelligent. I imagine a girl with this name to be unique and very friendly, too.
