The name itself is alright, spelt Nina. However, I taught a girl with this name and she was an absolute nightmare! So, it reminds me of her.

LOVE it spelled Nina and have for years, though I have a negative association with it so would never use it.

My son has a little girl in his class named Nina and I love hearing her name. I think it's very pretty. I would be torn on the spelling though. I love the look and meaning of Neena but I would hate for her to have to correct people all the time.

Are you pronouncing the two names the same? Or are you saying Nina like Nine-uh?

Either way I think it's a pretty name, but something I'd used. It seems very Spanish to me since the three girls I know with the name are Latina.

I pronounce them both as NEE-nah. Don't care for the other pronunciations.

I prefer the spelling Nina. Not something I would use but nothing wrong with the name. My aunt's name is Nina but pronounced Nine-uh

Nina is OK- it's nms, really. . . but not something I dislike with a passion or anything. The spelling of Neena, though, is nmsAA. . . it doesn't look right to me.
