lay-nah vs. lee-nah vs. len-nah

How is the name Lena pronounced? I wanted to name my daughter Lena thinking it was pronounced lay-nah, but then one of my friends said it was pronounced lee-nah, and then my cousin said it was pronounced Lenn-ah. Does anybody know the actual pronunciation? ( I’m pretty sure I’m only going to use it if it’s pronounced the first way)

Ive only heard it pronounced Lay-nah. If your worried about the pronounciation consider changing the spelling to show pronounciation.

The great thing about naming your baby is that you can pronounce it however you want, no matter its spelling. I see it as lay-nah, but that may be just because I’m a native Spanish speaker.

I pronounce it lee-nah. If you want it pronounced Lay-nah I would suggest spelling it Laina or Layna.
