A feminine name for tots from all walks of life, Laina embodies many origins. Thought to be inspired by the English surname Lane, Laina adopts the meaning “dweller in the lane” or “pathway;” however, its diverse roots make Laina a well-traveled title. Also derived from the French and Haitian Laine, Laina could mean “eldest son” or “wool.” Adding more to this lyrical name’s serene nature is the Finnish and Estonian translation “wave.” Laina can be considered a form of Lena, which stems from many names with this ending—from Magdalena to Alena, Milena, and more. The cherry on top is Laina’s Greek origin, from Helene, meaning “shining,” “torch,” and “bright” for your vibrant little sunbeam ready to share their light with the world.
