My best friend is originally Jewish, she lives in Israel. Her name is Elina and I really enjoy it! Elina is very smart, intelligent and noble, she always has the right things to say. Also I like that it is "between" two popular names in Israel – Elena and Alina. It makes it unique but pretty.

To me, Elina is a boring, plain name. I've known many Elinas and they all have been either plain or mean, which is why I don't like this name one bit.

Oh hi. This is my name. Nobody ever pronounces it right though. But overall I like having this as my name, even though the average American can't seem to get a grasp on how it's pronounced.

I am from Latvia and my name is Elîna. My name is popular in my country. I have noticed that for people from other countries it is hard to spell it. In Latvian it sounds like: "Eliiina".

This name is pretty. I think it might look a wee bit better spelt Elinah. But Elina is just as pretty.

Elina is also used in Norway, and it's pronounced like this: e-LI-na. My paternal grandmother bore this name.

My name is Elina. The Finnish way to pronounce it is somehow hard to understand I guess (because no one foreign I know has done it yet), but anyway here it comes: All the vowels are short, the pressure is strongly on E in the beginning. The I is like I in the English word ill. Can you manage it? :) It's a really common name in Finland.

Did you know that Elina is actually also an Indian name? The meaning there is "smart" or "intelligent". Really cool I think.

My friend is from Finland and her name is Elina except she pronounces it Eleanor because no one gets their tounge around Elina.

Elina Taalasmaa (or is that her surname anymore? Wasn't she married or something and then her husband died little after their wedding? Oh, I'm not sure, it was long time ago) is a character in the Finnish soap opera called 'Salatut elämät' (umm, Secret Lives or something like that in English. Isn't it lame?).
