- Personal experiences with the name Telina
I've never come across another Telina. My Dad said he found the name in a book he read as a teen. I never had a nickname as a child though my baby brother used to call me 'Nina' before he could pronounce my name. The thing I like most about this name is that I am forever being complimented on it. Most common mistake is people don't hear the 'T' and call me 'Selina' instead.
I spell my name Telina but pronounce it (Tah- leen- A)
My name is also Telina. Same spelling same pronunciation... I too always get the Selena when someone says my name and not sure where my mother got the name but I have never met anyone else with my name..
Honestly didn't think telina was "commen" I've named my daughter telina but spelt it completely different telineah, pronounced (tel-ee-nah)... got the name from Selena I didnt like the name Selena at all and well changed the S to a T and her dad changed it all up and come up with that spelling, I absolutely love the name telina I couldnt wait to have a girl it's so pretty and I'm so glad I've found all this info about the name telina and we have used the nickname lina or tina
