    Honest And Harsh Opinions Please!

    I love the name Orana, it’s unique but I don’t feel it’s hard to pronounce or spell. But if you heard someone with this name... what would you think?

    If I heard the name I wouldn’t think poorly of it but I also wouldn’t think “Wow, I like that name”. I do think there could be pronunciation and spelling issues but even very simple names can cause issues.

    I really like it, and would love to see it / hear of it on a little girl.

    This word is actually from the language of the local aboriginal tribe where I live in Australia - it means "welcome", and I think that's a lovely, warm meaning for a name.

    It's pretty, but I prefer Oriana.

    I've never come across it before but it feels distinctive, intriguing and different but also simple and sweet

    It’s not my favourite, but everyone has their own taste. However I disagree with it being simple to spell and pronounce. I think it is exactly the type of name that will have difficulty, as it’s not well known and could have many different variations of spellings - Is it provinces oh ran uh or oh ray na or uh ran uh and so on! I’m sorry to be harsh but you asked for it lol! I think it’s a fine name but if being easy to spell and pronounce are vital to you, it may not be ideal.

    I think it's an almost name. And by that, I mean I LOVE the idea, but if that was my name, I would want it spelled so that people would know how to say it.

    So
    Oranna
    or
    Oryna
    or
    Orayna

    I had never seen Orana before. I though you had forgotten the "I" in Oriana. I think Oriana is a stunning and mysterious name.
    I do like the meaning that @mummacat92 presented! It's lovely.

    Honestly, it does nothing for me. I don't love it nor do I hate it.
