The name is SO popular in my community. I know only 15 Adina's. But, it's a beautiful name.

My name is Adina as well. I am from the US, but grew up travelling the world. I have always liked my name. My parents simply found it in a book of baby names. I can't imagine a boy named Adina. I get lots of comments on my name, always positive. The only drawback is I've never found a pencil, keychain, etc. With my name on it, lol.

My name is Adina, and I'm a Romanian girl. No connection with Hebrews, but I know its origins are biblical.
Adi is a boy's name over here, but it's usually a short form from Adrian, which is Latin (Adrianus or Hadrianus.)

African Meaning: She has saved

Somebody wrote that Adina was Ariel's sister, but her spelling was Attina.

It's also a song by punk band Rancid.

On a personal touch, I hated my name until I was 14 years old, because it was uncommon and people laughed at me for not having a usual, traditional name. Now I find it lovely, and strong because of the letter "D".

This name is masculine?! No...
Way feminine.

Adina is HORRIBLE for a boy but stunningly BEAUTIFUL for a girl! "Adi" could be a nickname! Seriously, if you like the sound of this name and plan on naming your son this, why not go for "Adi" or "Adin"?

Ah, I love this name as a boy's name! Adina! Makes me think of a tall, slender, extremely handsome young man, with delicate features, he is strong and passionate, a righteous revolutionary! I shall name my third son (Lord willing that I marry and have many children) Adina! As a girls name it's nice too, just not quite so shockingly beautifully handsome as on a boy!

This name has two spelling variants in Hebrew: one, masculine, from a proper name in the Hebrew Bible, and one, feminine, based on a Hebrew adjective (which also in found in the Hebrew Bible).

The masculine Adina is spelled in Hebrew as עדינא, and is the name of a soldier found in 1 Chronicles 11:42. The spelling (with the final aleph) suggests an Aramaic, rather than a Hebrew, origin.

The feminine name in Hebrew is spelled עדינה. This Adina means "noble," "delicate," or "refined." It is a modern Hebrew name, but the word itself can be found in Isaiah 47:8.

Today, the masculine Adina is unknown as a name, but the feminine Adina is a popular name, both in Israel and in Jewish communities worldwide. [noted -ed]

I like this name very much. It's not too common which is good but it's fairly heard of. It has a nice ring to it.

I think this should be the name of a smart girl.

This is a very pretty modern (for girls) Hebrew name, and I think it deserves more attention.

It's not a terrible name, but after all these years, I still think of Adina Howard, the r'n'b singer from the 90s, when I hear this name, and I can hear the song Freak Like Me in my head: ''I wanna feak in the morning and freak in the evening. Coz I will be your freak all thru the day until the dawn.'' Oh well, I've forgotten the lyrics, but that's what comes to mind.

I am surprised to see this listed as masculine, it sounds so feminine and I have only known girls with this name.

I'm not sure if the origin is correct, but in current Hebrew Adina is exclusively a feminine name. Also, the masculine form of the word Adina (meaning 'delicate') is "Adin", and it is not used as a name. While the feminine form of the word 'delicate' is pronounced "Adina" with stress on the last syllable, the name "Adina" is pronounced with stress on the second syllable. [noted -ed]

Adina is a very common woman name in Romania.

Adina - This name is also used in Romania, England, France, Germany, and Italy. Another origin would come from the name "ADAL" which in Old German meant "Noble". (I found this on a Romanian site... I am not sure about it.)
