Personal experiences with the name Alayna: | Edit

My name is Alayna and my whole life people have butchered both the spelling and pronounciation. I dont bother correcting people most of the time and always use a fake name at restaurants and coffee shops to spare the counter person the embarrassment of mispronouncing it.

My name is Alayna, it stresses me that people confuse my name with "Elena" and think that my name starts with an E. It isn't that bad though, it's nice knowing that there are various names how to spell my name
