Layna is a girl's name of Greek origin that means "truth." It can also mean "light" or "torch," encouraging baby to set a positive example for the people around her. Torches are seen as a sign of hope or enlightenment—think Statue of Liberty—letting baby know that she's strong enough to lead the way. Layna is a modern spelling of the names Laina and Lana, and is also related to the French name Elaine.
