For Ah-leen-uh/Eh-leen-uh I would use Alina, Elina, Alena, or Aleena.

Alina- Ah-LEEN-uh
Elena- Eh-Lay-nuh or Eh-len-uh
Elina- Eh-LEEN-uh
Alaina- Ah-Lay-nuh.

My favorites are Elena or Alaina.

I agree 100% with Anna.

In my opinion,

Eh-LEEN-ah is Elina. (or, if you wanted, Elyna. But I'm not a fan)
Ah-LEEN-ah is Alina

then

ALAINA = Ah-LAY-Nuh or Ah-LIE-Nuh
ELENA = I know it's pronounced Ell-EH-Nah, but in Italy we use a different stress. It's always been ELL-eh-nah to me, but both pronunciations are great for me.

My favorite is Elena ♥

I agree with Anna and Nadia.

Good luck.

I know someone named Alaina pron. (ah LAY nah). I like the spelling Elena but it might be pron. (ELLE en ah).

I think Alena would be your best choice for the pron. (ah LEEN ah)
