Celebrity Baby Name We Love: Aliona (Peter Okoye & Lola Omotayo’s Baby Girl)


When someone calls your name in a crowded place, how many people respond? If your name is something like Tolu, Chioma or Faith, you are probably used to having many namesakes. But if your name is Aliona?

Everyone is talking about Peter Okoye and Lola Omotayo’s new daughter, not only does she have gorgeous parents, she’s also got a beautiful name. It’s likely she will always be the only Aliona in her class but the uniqueness of the name is part of the appeal.

Aliona which means brightness is a Russian variation of Helen and also one that is not commonly used like the other variants such as Elena or Elaine.

The name sounds warm and sweet, it’s one of those names you hear and you draw a pretty image of the person in your mind before you actually meet the person.

One of the few well-known Alionas is the spirited Russian-Kazakhstani  professional dancer, Aliona Vilani.
