Do you like this name? EDIT

Rina (or Reena/Rena) Leigh



Do you think it's too much like "renal"? Or did you not think that until I mentioned it? lol

If you think it sounds like "renal" now, should it prevent me from naming my kid that?

My sisters' middle names are "Leigh" and "Irene".

EDIT: Alright, alright, I get it. You hate "Rina/Reena/Rena". lol

How about Irene? What's a good name that I can use to honor both my sisters? First names are Rebecca and Christina.

     Yes, it has always reminded me of kidneys and I think it's an awful name.

    Thank you. I was about to make up a totally inflammatory statement and use it as the title! lol

    I can get why you don't like it. What do you think of Irene? "Irene Leigh" or "Leigh Irene(BLECK)"?

    I don't. It's not my taste. Is Lee the middle name?

    I think Irene Lee sounds better. The original name is terrible, sorry. It makes me think of renal failure. Why don't you use your maiden name/your sisters last name as DDs middle name?

      I like Irene Leigh better. Irene is a pretty name and not used a lot today.

     Here are some variations I found:

     

    Irka, Irenka (Czech)Eirini, Ereni, Eirene, Nitsa (Greek)Iren, Irenke (Hungarian)Eireen (Irish)Yaryna, Ira, Irisha, Jereni, Irya, Irena, Arina, Arinka, Yarina, Irina, Iryna, Irini (Russian)Irenea (Spanish)
