My name is Davina. My parents came up with the name by using theirs - DAV from David and INA from Edwina.

David Tennant played a character named Davina in some TV show. He had to cross dress for the part. It was absolutely hilarious to see.

I was supposed to be a boy, and the only name picked out was David. My mother often joked that they should have named me Davina or Davida, because they had to think of another name in a hurry. If only they had done that... the name they gave me is horrid. At least this one is interesting. I like it.

I like how it says this is a British name that originated in Scotland, but the only place it's ever been on the top 1000 charts is the US.

It's only been on the US top 1000 in the 1970s and 1980s, and even then, the most popular it's been was #764. The US has a much larger population than the UK. The number of babies in the UK with a name that ranks #700-something is much less significant than in the US. A name ranking in the 700's in the UK should not be perceived as any more popular than many names that didn't make their top 1000.

Shouldn't it be listed in the Scottish names if it originated in Scotland?

I love the sound of Davina and would use it to honor my father David. I'd call her Dove for short, since that's the sound of the first syllable.

I have a friend named Devyn, and I call her Devino as a nickname. This reminds me WAY too much of that, but I wouldn't cringe if I heard someone with this name.
