An alternative to Alaina, Alayna is a sweet, old-fashioned-sounding name with lots of classic appeal. With origins reaching back to old Brittany and the Celtics, Alayna is linked to Alan, which means “rock” in ancient Gaelic. It’s also a modernized version of older names like Ellen and Elaine, which have Greek roots in the name Helen. How’s that for a modern twist on not one, but several classics!
