My name is Darina and I love my name! When I was at school I got nickname Tangerine, so no one called me Darina but family only. Now I'm proud of my name! It means "gift" in Russian and "fire" in Persian.

Darina and Daria are variants of the masculine name Darius. Darina/Daria were used first for girls at family of kings of Persia.

Also Serbian. And in relation to the comment above, it has nothing to do with Darius or Persia. Dara, Darija, Darina, Darinka, Darislava, Darica, Darja, Darka, Daromira, Daromirka, Darosava, Daroslava are the names I know of that are made up of (whole or partially) from the noun "dar", meaning "gift". It is related to Ancient Greek "δῶρον" (doron) also meaning gift like in Theodora.
