Lena?

Considering this name and know how I would like it pronounced, but wanted to see what the general consensus was! Don't want endless corrections for evermore if "my way" is not what everyone else would assume grin.

Lay-na like Magdalena

I prefer Lene as a spelling though as it prompts the 'how do you pronounce that?' instead of some just guessing Lenna confused

Lee nah

Ds would of been Leni if a dd, pronounced Laynee

I knew someone with that name, years ago. She would be at least 90, now. Her name was pronounced Lee-na.
