This is such a common name where I'm from! It's quite nice.
Very pretty name, but overused in Hispanic communities. I somewhat like that it's become more popular now and will be used with a younger generation.
As a ballet lover, this name makes me think of a gorgeous ballerina!
I like this spelling better than Alena and Aleena.

Alina Zagitova, born 18.05.2002, is an Olympic champion in ladies' single figure skating and the youngest skater ever to win a Grand Slam - every important gold medal in the sport (Olympics, Worlds, Europeans, Nationals, Grand Prix Final, Junior Worlds, Junior Nationals, Junior Grand Prix Final), she managed to do it by the age of 16. Originally Tatar, she was named after a famous Russian rhythmic gymnast Alina Kabaeva. Despite being the best skater in the world at the moment, she is considered to have a really strong character - Alina left her hometown and her parents at the age of 13 to train with the best coach in Moscow, managed to continue skating under big pressure after winning Olympics at the age of 15, to do really difficult elements as well as to skate with great grace and flow.
Alina used to be a very common name in Romania. It went as far up as #8 in 1989. Now it has fallen a bit out of fashion, it doesn't even make the top 20 anymore and placed at only #39 in 2009.

Also a Hungarian name. Pronounced: AW-li-naw.
I love the way this name sounds (A-leen-a).
I have always hated my name; however, after realizing it's rare I fell in love with it. But recently I have noticed the name is picking up momentum and it's losing its value. I have met 6 people with the same name. 1 girl from my linguistics class, the other 3 were named after me, and the other 3 were from South Asia. Well, at least I have my middle name, that's pretty rare too and I hope No one names their kid that except my best friend.
It's written as "ألينا" in Arabic. [noted -ed]
My name is Alina and here in Australia it is not too common, but still a nice name which I love because I would hate to have a name that's overused. However, it is still common enough for people to know of it when they hear it, although I have gotten a large and amusing variety of spellings throughout my 17 years including: Uleena, Arleana, Elena, Ulina, Aleena, Alinah and Ahlina.
It is great to know the beautiful things people say about my name. I had no idea about the meaning of my name or its origin. It's great to know now. It's not so known here in Ghana and I love that.
I'm in my fifties and have only met a handful of other girls with my name. As a kid you just want to fit in so I hated having a different name. When I started dating, guys loved my name so I finally started loving it too. It also makes you memorable.
Glad to see so many here.
This is a gorgeous name and needs to be used more often in the US.
Queen Aleena (same name, though spelled this way) is a fictional character in the Sonic Underground TV series. She is the mother of Sonic the Hedgehog and his siblings Sonia and Manic.
Alina Smith (Born: August 25, 1991) is a country and hip-hop singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

Alina is a beautiful & exotic name.
My name is Alina and I always loved my name. It's a very beautiful name and not a lot of people have it. ♡♡♡♡.
I know someone with this name, and yes she is Italian. For some reason, its often butchered as "Elena". I hate to say this, but I think it's best only to use this name if you're Italian or any of the other ethnicities it originates from. Otherwise it looks kind of creative or made up.
I think this is a pretty name. It is simple, easy to pronounce and say, but very elegant and sophisticated.
Alina, from the book "Fell" by David Clement-Davies.
Alina Wilson, Survivor contestant.
I know an Alina from the Czech Republic who pronounced it "Allen-uh".
I'm jealous of anyone lucky enough to have this absolutely beautiful name. Alina sounds soft and feminine, with no harsh sounds. I love the way it means "to soothe" in Romanian. It really doesn't surprise me - Alina sounds very soothing, caressing and calming.
My best friend spells her name Aleena, but that variant is not on this site. She was born in Pakistan, but she says that most people there with her name spell it Alina. I think both ways are very beautiful, but I prefer Aleena to Alina.
Here in Finland, I haven't heard a single bad word about it. Most people love it! It's not common, that makes it special. Girls can easily use it as a first name, or second first name. Here I don't know anyone else named Alina, in Russia, I know one. It's easy to spell too! I love it! I feel lucky to have it. -Owner of name
This is SUCH a pretty name, and judging by the other comments, it has beautiful meanings in other languages. This name never caught on in Finland despite the popularity of the name Elina. I personally think Alina sounds nicer, and in Finnish, the first syllable is always stressed, so you can actually tell the difference, which you could hardly do in English. Whether you put the stress on the first or second syllable, it's a lovely name.
Alina is one of the unusual and not common names in Russia as well. There are two pronunciations of this name one is with AH-lina and another is with first "a" pronounced as in Adam or Evan. And of course there is a famous and very old Russian name Alena with "E" in it pronounced as in YOrk.
To me it sounds very gentle and beautiful, a light haired fair skin princess?!
I don't like "Al" as a nickname for a girl. And I don't fancy "Lina" either. My name is Leanne and I've gotten "lean" all my life. "Elaina" or "Elanya" are both prettier sounding and looking than "Alina".
The name is also Romanian and just to let you know it's my girl cousin's name too :D. It's a very girly sort of name and very city like if you get what I mean.
Romanian pronunciation I think is ah-lin-nah.
Also a girls name in Slovenia.
It's a very pretty name.
Listen to the German pronunciation of Alina here:
In Romania, the verb "alina" means to soothe, to confort or to make the emotional pain, such as missing a person, bearable, like a painkiller:). My mother named me after this. It's a popular name in Romania and nobody thinks of it as noble.
German pronunciation: aw-LEE-nah. [noted -ed]
Quite popular in Germany, considered young and modern. Love this name!
This is such a beautiful name. Pronunciation seems varied, I only know of it pronounced a-LEAN-a.
Also spelled Alena, Aleena, Allena and Aline. I love this name, so very beautiful and sophisticated and not a fad name.
My name is Alina and I am from America. My parents found the name in a baby book and I am so pleased to learn of its popularity, growing up I hated that no one had my name. I was born in 1976 and it wasn't as common then.
I like the meaning of this name. I like the way it sounds, it's just so pretty!
My name is Alina and I am from Romania, I came here when I was 7 and I had never met or heard of another person named the same. It is nice to know there are a few out there with such a special name.
My name is Alina and I'm proud having it. In my country (ROMANIA) it is becoming day by day more popular and that makes me feel very happy because it is a beautiful and powerful name.
Alina is of Polish origin and means Bright and Beautiful.
My name is Alina. I always thought of it as quite boring but after realising it means noble I'm quite pleased! I never actually knew the origin either. I had lots of people say it was Greek, Russian, Spanish, etc! Nice to know that after being called a name for 17 years!
I think that this name is very beautiful, very nice , and very popular. I very much like this name!
Means "bright, beautiful".
