Personal experiences with the name Arena: | Edit

My sister is called Arena and her middle name is Simone, the female version of my dads name, Simon, I love this name as it’s so unique and original. It’s very attention grabbing and you can’t say really say it wrong. Our nickname for her is Rena without the A and her friend used to call her 02 Arena, although I guess you could pronounce it Arren-a if you wanted too
