Ina is pretty! But in my city there is a road called Ina and everyone pronounces it I-Na, not E-na.... so this is a name that is hard for others to say correctly.

This name is simply beautiful to me and I'm crushing on it hard lately. I prefer the pronunciation ee-na. It reminds me of a strong, independent girl, someone who takes the road less traveled.

My name is Ingrid and I couldn't say it as a child so I named myself Ina, my family still calls that, it's my nickname!
