Other Origin(s):Irish
Meaning:Precious; Handsome; Cheerful
Sometimes a name is so special that people from opposite ends of the planet—speaking different languages—choose it for their new arrival. As you embrace your little one for the first time, test out the Old German girl's name, Allena, meaning "precious." If you're a fan of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and share dear Gollum's protective nature, even better! Also of Irish origin, Allena translates to "handsome" or "cheerful" and is thought to be a feminine version of Allen.
