Thank you so much for your interest and all your help. Your information has made Malina an even more attractive name to me. The more I find about the name the more it interests me. I really do like its international diversity - something that is badly needed in a world where more than a few people are intent on blowing each other up. Here's what I know about the name:

1. In Hawaiian it means calm, soothing, peaceful.

2. In Hindi it means dark.

3. In hewbrew it means from the tower.

4. In Polish it means raspberry (but it is a proper girls name).

5. In Scottish I have read on the net that it is a female version of Malcolm (meaning a disciple of Saint Columba. It is associated with a dove (peace)). But I need proof of this. I particularly like the dove association here.

Again, many thanks for all your help.
