    I would say “Ee-lane-uh”.

    If it was spelled “Alaina”, then I’d say “Uh-lane-uh”.

    I’m not quite sure what your options mean, so I didn’t vote on the poll, but I would say Elaina as Ehl-ania (beginning part sounding like the name ‘Elle’).

    In Spanish, it’s Elena, which is pronounced Eh-lay-nuh. I feel like pronouncing e’s hard with only one e is a dead giveaway that the person only speaks one language and knows nothing about other pronunciations. A little ignorant sounding, sorry.
