We named our daughter Rina
. In Hebrew, it means a joy that is both complete and spiritual. It has inaccurately been reported as meaning "joyful song" or simply "song" (which is actually "Shira
"), but one can see how "joyful song" might have crept in there.
This fairly idiomatic meaning was explained to me in this way: if you imagine a linear spectrum of good feelings from 'mere' joy ("simcha") to love ("ahava"), then "Rina
" is orthogonal to that spectrum, reaching upwards towards God.
As an aside, Rina
(I am told) also means "Queen
" in Hindu.
