ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 558
You don’t like Elaine, Elane or Ellen? Then try Elaina, a name with a little more delicacy (from that last “A”) and a little more obscurity, which can be either good or bad, depending how you look at it. It comes from the Latin Elaine, the French equivalent of Helen, and ultimately derived from the Greek Helene. Helen comes from “helios” (“sun”), so Helen—and thus Elaina—means “sun ray.” Casting a bright light on the name is Elaina Maxwell, a medal-winning mixed martial arts fighter and kickboxer.
