My parents gave me the name Irina because they had a book named Irina. I live in Holland and the name Irina is not very usual in this country. I don't like the name because I wish I had a name you hear all the time. But my second name is Lisette and that's a nice name so I can always change my name. ;-))

Irina derives from the Greek word for peace "irini". It is actually Greek, but is very popular all over Eastern Europe and Russia. In Greece it's Irini.

I really love the name Irina because it sounds fantastical, delicate yet strong, and exotic but not too strange. It makes me picture a beautiful woman with long dark hair and dark eyes.

I really like the name Irina. It's definitely better than Irene. It's sort of magical-sounding and also really firm and strong, but not masculine-sounding.
I know a girl called Irina but she pronounces it I-rin-na, with the first I like the I in 'pit'. I like this pronunciation too, but at first I thought her name Erina or Erinna.
