What do you think of this name? It means 'love' and most will recognize it from Dracula. There is also the actress Mena Suvari. I've liked this name on and off for years. I like both spellings.

Mina/Mena Alexandra
Mina/Mena Cadence
Mina/Mena Kaisleigh
Mina/Mena Juliet

I really like it! Not sure which spelling I prefer though, possibly Mena. I also love Mila (mee-la) and I think Mira (meer-ah) is cute too!

Mina/Mena Alexandra - LOVE this! I have Mila Alexandra on my list though it might be too much L. Mina/Mena Alexandra is fabulous!
Mina/Mena Cadence - I don't care for Cadence and I feel that the two names clash for style. Cadence feels very trendy to me while Mena/Mina has an exotic feel going on.
Mina/Mena Kaisleigh - Not loving this one either.
Mina/Mena Juliet - Very pretty! I definitley prefer Mena with an E here. It just looks better paired w/Juliet imo.

I love it too, ever since I read Dracula i've just thought it was so beautiful. I liked Wilhelmina first though, but I guess people might consider that a bit dated (though Willow is such a cute nn!)
Anyway, I like both spellings too, Mina Juliet is definitely my favourite, but Mina Alexandra is really nice too :(

I love Mina, though I remember it from somewhere different. I definitely prefer the Mina spelling because Mena would probably invite pronunciation problems. I also don't like that it is basically Men + "a". Mina is much prettier. Out of the combos, I adore Mina Juliet, but really dislike the rest. Mina Juliet is simple and gorgeous. It is really too bad that Wilhemina would be seen as too old-sounding... there are some really great possibilities there.

Personally, I like Lina (or Lena) a lot better. For me, Mina has that "mean" connection and for some reason it makes me think of small people :P (probably from the "mini" connection). Other than that, I guess it's okay, but I like Lina a lot better. I like Mina Alexandra or Mina Juliet (LOVE mn Juliet).

Totally biased, as you can see. However, IMO Mena Juliet is tops. Kaisleigh and Cadence don't fit but I can't justify them, it's just my feeling. Mina is all very well if you're into the fashionable Vampire-feeling names. In any case Mina is classy, Mena is great and you have some lovely choices to make your mind up about. Good luck choosing.

I've always thought Mina was soooo sweet. I do prefer the Mina spelling, mostly because Mena reminds me more of the word "mean."

I think Mina Alexandra (or even Mina Alessandra) and Mina Juliet are breath-taking!

I was in Dracula when I was in high school and ever since I have had a secret love for the name Mina...more of a guilty pleasure than anything. It just has a sort of exotic, sweet sound to it. I adore Mina Juliet.
