I'm Raina. I did not like my name when I was young. I was not very pretty and overweight. As I grew I accepted it. What I didn't like was everybody else could get thing with their name on it and I couldn't (stupid right?). Well I think I was about 7-8. I'm definitely different (like my name); never met anyone with my name yet with same spelling. A lot of people asked what does it mean when I researched it ..it wasn't easy..books then...the sound of the name ray-na means Queenly in Latin and then found the original spelling and meaning back in Celtic Scottish days and it meant strength....
As I grew I became a swan -- took 20 years, and definitely knew I was head mind and body strong. And I guess kinda was queenly in a way..... Now I am somewhere between happy and content. So I DEFINITELY recommend the name but always love her, tell her she can do anything that she wants to do and watch out when you tell her NO....she won't understand such a thing!
