Finally has a name. Lena(pronounced Layna) Elizabeth Tindall. Pretty name but don’t know why she wasn’t just named Layna in the first place.

People who deliberately want to name a child name a and pronounce it as name b always bug me.

I know two people named Lena and both pronounce it like Layna, so it is common enough in my area at least.

Ah, my grandma's grandma was Lena pronounced LEE-na, so this is tripping me up. Pretty name, regardless!

I think Lay-na is the popular pronunciation in many European countries, such as Germany. I have a friend called Elena (ell-ay-na). It's one of those names with many pronunciations according to region/accent/etc.

My name, Claudia, has multiple pronunciations, the "British" and the "European/German". The American is similar to the British, it depends on how you pronounce "claw". Brits tend to be more "clor-dia" and Americans more "clar-dia"/long a (I think, I've not heard my name pronounced in an American accent that often, and of course there are multiple American accents). European is "cloud-ia". After doing German for a total of eleven years (through school and university) I am used to and respond to both.
