    I'd use the Finnish names Aino (eye- no) or Aine (eye-ne).

    Just be prepared to constantly tell people how it's pronounced/spelt.

    My first inclination when I saw it, was that it would be pronounced "Ay-nuh".

    Ay-nuh is how I would have pronounced it too. I prefer Alma, which is easier to pronounce and spell.

    My father's Greenlandic cousin is named Aina and I also have a Greenlandic friend called Aina, so I've always associated the name to Greenland
    I think it's lovely, very simple yet fresh and beautiful. The two Ainas I know, both pronounce their names eye-nuh.
