  1. I Got Her Name Off Of Vampire Diaries , I Always Said If I Have A Daughter Ill Name Her Elaina , ! I Dont Really Know Anyone With That Name And Also Wanted A Name That Not Everyone Has .

  2. I love the name I picked for my daughter.. Elaina.. I named her after me my middle name except with a A not a E.

    • My mom’s middle name is Elaine. I wanted to spell my daughters name Elena but instead I spelled it Elaina. My niece’s middle name is also Elaina.

  3. I chose the name Elaina Ray after my mothers middle name Lisa Elaine and fathers first name ray Allison who passed. I wanted there legacy to live on forever. They are amazing caring and loving folks (were) and even though I’m more of a tom boy and not big on what you may say is a (girly) name .I felt passing on there name and memory was important .

  4. I always loved the name elena and elaine. considering I have elena in my name I did not want our names to be similar so I chose Elaina. The only thing I dont like is that people tend to pronounce it Eliana or alaina.

    • I feel relieved now.my husband suggested Elaina four our daughter. I was not use of it since I had never had of it. Am glad I now know what it means. But like someone said,people pronounce it as Elianah.

  5. We originally had another name picked out for our baby if it was a girl (team green). However, when baby was born and we found out it was a girl, the original name just didn’t fit her. So we went looking through names and knew we wanted a baby name to start with an E since our other daughters name is Evelyn. When we heard the name Elaina it just fit. We just had to choose the spelling! ?

  6. Beautiful, delicate name that starts with vowel!

  7. I chose this name because of it’s elegance and meaning, ‘shinning’, and in hebrew, ‘torch of light’ It was perfect for my first born. Every night we pray “Lord, make me a torch of light to shine your love and truth in dark places”…in so many ways is she really living up to it.
