    I don’t really dislike it, but if you want a better chance at proper pronunciation, I’d probably spell it Kalina.  I’d probably assume that spelling was KA-lin-a.

    Not a fan. It doesn’t sound like it’s spelled (She will constantly be correcting people) and I think that most “special snowflake” names lose their novelty rather quickly.

    Yeah, the spelling isn’t correct for the pronunciation you want.  Kalyna would be kah-LIN-uh or kah-LIE-nuh.  I’m still kind of meh on the name, but if you love it, consider Kalina or Kaleena for spelling.

    @SapphireSun:  I agree, or they’d pronounce it Ka-lie-nuh mistakenly… But I think in general I’m just not a fan of replacing the letter i with y in modern names… Like Jessyca, etc. 

    It’s a pretty-sounding name though!

    I’m not a huge fan but maybe it just takes some getting used to.

    I agree with PPs that it would be pronounced Ka-lie-nuh if you spelled it like that. If you like modern spellings what about Kahlena?

    Don’t mind the name, but I have a problem with the spelling. It will get mispronounced all the time.

    I fear that in the UK it would be viewed as somewhat chav. But Rose is nice!

    PMSL at Heaven Leigh though!Smile
