    I like the way Leighenna looks, but I would probably do it Lienna.

    I like Leighenna actually. But I can see that it’s kind of cumbersome for a short name.

    Lenhna? Leehna?

    Leena?

    I think you’re likely to get the most accurate pronunciation from other people if you go with Lienna.

    P.S. You should make a poll!  You’ll get way more opinions that way!

    Sorry bout I hate the way leighhenna looks. Unless you’re from somewhere that the “gh” is a common silent sound? (don’t know what country you’re in) but I do like lienna.

    I think it’s a cute name but I’m almost certain she’s going to have to tell people how to spell and say it her whole life.

    @JaylaKay:  No, it’s not too long. But I would be prepared for her to be known as “leigh” in school and amongst her friends and for lot’s of people to get confused and pronounce it “leigh-anna” and miss the E. That’s why I think Lienna works best.

    I think many people would pronounce Leighenna as “Lee-Henna,” so I would probably avoid spelling it that way.  Because of that, I think Lienna is the better of the two options.  However, you still may have some people saying “Ly-enna,” “Lee-na,” or “Lyna” with that spelling.

    @JaylaKay:  I guess I’m in the minority here but I think Lienna doesn’t look like Lee-en-ah. It looks like Ly-enna to me. My sisters name is Leana and everyone pronounces it Lee-Anna which is right so I think the Leanna spelling should be out. I think Leena will end up Lee-na… I vote Leighena. I think ppl will get it right and it looks pretty… I don’t think it’s too long 🙂 it’s no longer than my favorite name, Charlotte.
