User comments for Karina
This name is also used in Russia.
A very popular name in Latin American countries. I always thought that the name comes from "cariños" or "cariñosa".

My name is Karina and when I was little I always hated it just for the reason that people would take it upon themselves and add a "T" in the middle of Karina and call me Hurricane Katrina.. It sucked but I got over it. I also never liked my name because it was always brash and hard with the K. Now that I'm older I truly do enjoy my name now, I still think the K is brash, but that is only when my name is said in English. In English Karina is pronounce KAH-REE-NAH but in Spanish is comes off the tongue much smoother. In Spanish it is pronounced CAH-RRE-NAH. (it's hard showing how to pronounce in Spanish, lol) (the double "R" in the Spanish pronunciation was intended to show the rolling of the R)
Also used in Hungary. Pronounced: KAW-ri-naw.
Also used in Greece, it is written Καρινα in Greek and pronunced "kah-REE-nah".
