    Opinions on Malina

    Hi!
    The other day I met a woman called Malina. I thought at first it was Melina, but I later found out that it was spelt Malina and pronounced Melina and her nn was Mel. I think it's a strange and quite sinister name (I can picture it on a Disney evil queen) if pronounced mal-ee-nah. I think it's pretty though if said and spelt Melina although my dad (who's a vet) said Melina is some kind of medical term.
    Anyway what do you think of Malina/Melina?
    Thanks,
    Ellie xx

    It sounds pretty to me, but it does have that 'mal' syllable which means 'bad' in French/Spanish (Latin languages generally).

    Malia is similar, and I don't think anyone thinks "evil" or "bad" associations with it.

    I think it's kind of nice!
    It's a GIRL!! First babe, due 4/17.

    Malina means raspberry in many Slavic languages like Russian, Serbian and Bulgarian to name a few.

    Yes a pretty awful medical term-blood in the stools. Any vet or medical person would know that. Sad as it is lovely sounding...
