Personal experiences with the name Jalanea

My mom fell in love with this name at age 16 and 4 years later when I was born that was the name she choose. My name is pronounced just like it is spelled, Ja-lane-a. The original spelling is Galina and my mom altered the spelling so that it was spelled out phonically correct and spelled the way that the name is pronounced. Despite her best effort this backfired and even though I get complements on my name all the time people cannot pronounce or spell my name correctly. I do love the originality of my name and am glad that I wasnt given a "plan Jane" name
