Independent and strong-willed, Alina is a free-spirited, ambitious girl. Even though she knows where she’s going, it’s not clear where she’s been. Her origin is debatable, and the name means something different in different countries and cultures. In Armenia, it means “bearer of light.” In Arabic it means “illustrious.” In France, it’s defined as “noble.” Whatever its meaning, Alina has lots of positive energy and a bright future.
