Another Rayna joining the conversation? What a surprise!

So, in complete honesty I actually disliked my name for the first half of my eighteen years of life. I was told that it was a combination name, originally; a smush of my fathers and mothers middle names, and it was actually supposed to be spelled 'Rayné' with the accent and everything, to add in that extra bit of creativity, but my mother misspelled it or something and I wound up with an 'A' instead. But apparently, they were late to the party, on both spellings.

After finding my name online I actually began liking it more, since it felt more historical and nostalgic then some smushed name my parents invented. So, in short, I would recommend this name. It has that sorta-kinda nature sound with a handful of lovely meanings that come with each cultural connection, people also seem to love it; since I have yet to meet someone that hasn't complimented it in some way or another, despite the need to spell it every time.
