This is my grandmother's name. We are Russian, so it's a pretty common name in our circle.

This is my grandmother's name. Except her mother spelled it " Galena ". We are neither slavic nor russian. But it is a family name none the less. Her nickname that everyone calls her is Gleen or Gween. I'd consider it for my daughter, if not for a first name than a middle.
