    Could you please advise if Aleena is valid muslim name. Some people says its not from Arabic or Muslim region. may be used in western country but not a valid Muslim name and not found in any dictionary or in history. please advise as we like this name for our baby. Thanks.

    @1: Aleena is a correct and valid name, those people can look at the Lisan al-Arab dictionary, the most respected Arabic language dictionary, and they will find Aleena right on the first line of the entry for the L-Y-N root:

    اللِّينُ: ضِدُّ الخُشونة. يقال في فِعْل الشيء اللَّيِّن: لانَ الشيءُ يَلِينُ لِيْناً ولَيَاناً وتَلَيَّن وشيءٌ لَيِّنٌ ولَيْنٌ، مخفف منه، والجمع أَلْيِناءُ.
