this is definitely one of my guilty pleasure names... no one I tell it to likes it but I just think its cute! I guess it is to close to Alaina's nn of Lainey anyway, maybe I'll just have to use it for a pet!

I don't think Leona and Lainey are too close. I actually think they make a cute sibset.

I love it!

Some similar names, that aren't as close to Alaina/Lainey:
Leonie (closer to Lainey, but not as close to Alaina)

I think it's a really nice name, and not too close to Lainey at all !

I think Leona is cute!

I also like the suggestion of Fiona. I don't think Leona is too close, but if you do, Fiona would be a little more different and I love it too!

Leonora is good too. If you wanted a nickname that would sound different from Lainey, Nora would be cute.

I'm going against the grain here, but I actually do think Leona is a little too matchy with Lainey... but I love the suggestion of Leonora. She'll have the option of either Leona or Nora as a nick name and I think it sounds great with Alaina/Lainey.

I dont really like Leona sorry. Its the name of the winner of the most recent series of X-factor which is basically the same thing as American Idol. I also think Lainey and Leona are too close for a sibset, unfortunately.
