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.)

Adina is a beautiful elegant name for a girl, one she could easily grow up with.

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]

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

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.

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

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.

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]

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!
-- Nadire  9/2/2012
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"?

This name is masculine?! No...
