Starelli Says:


Native English speakers do the same thing. We steal names from other cultures and butcher them all the time.

So? It seems to be the trend now, so it's not as if it would stand out.

Eva Thyssen Says:


Only a native or extremely fluent Spanish speaker can understand the connection. Some uneducated (no offense) Spanish speaking people take names in English and write them as pronounced (Yenifer instead of Jennifer, Nicol instead of Nicole, Maryori instead of Marjorie, Yonatan instead of Jonathan, Cristofer instead of Christopher). Sometimes they add more letters to the name. Diana->Dayana->Dayanara.
I'm a native Spanish speaker and I can easily note the connection between Diana, Dayana and Dayanara. BTW, Diana is pronounced dee-A-na in Spanish, the As like the A in Car.

It's a misspelling of Diana (Dayana) with a strange ending. It can lead to pronunciation problems too. Diana is a beautiful name. It doesn't need strange spellings or endings ;)

Just NO. No, no, no.
