I work as a reservationist for an airline. When I have a customer that has the same name, they usually are born in the 60's. When asked most say they were named after a popular actress of the time, most likely Dina Merrill. This could explain the sudden popularity at the time.

Dina is the only daughter of Jacob (later called Israel) and her brothers are the famous 12 leaders of the Jews. I think Dina is the same as Hinna (the mother of Mary the Virgin). Hope anyone better knows about this and can correct my information.

My friend's name is Dina, and personally I love the name. She has a twin sister named Mina, and in Swedish Dina and Mina means "yours" and "mine". Well, their parents didn't know that when they moved to Sweden from Turkey, so... But I still think both of the names are beautiful. =)

Dina (DEE-na not DIE-na) Araz was a character in season 4 of 24.

I like Dina more than Diana. Simple but still pretty name, even if it reminds me about that Swedish word "yours".
-- Yippal  11/11/2006
It's pronounced "DEE-nah"; I don't like the pronunciation "DIE-na" - it sounds risqué.

I grew up with a girl with this name, and we all always pronounced her name "DEE-na", not "DIE-na". I know because when I was little I used to confuse her with another girl named Diana, and it would've taken me a lot longer to distinguish the two if their names sounded the same!

Dina is also a Hindu name and is pronounced DEE-Nah or DEE-nuh as first stated and means Sympathetic.

If it's Dee-nah it's Indian, if it's Die-nah then it's Indian.

Dina, Mina, Nina, Rina, Tina, etc. There's a whole bunch of names with the INA ending. It's starting to get boring in my opinion.

When I hear this name it makes me think "Dina the dinosaur". Not sure why, but it makes it all the more unflattering.

I think this name sounds so really beautiful. I love it. A friend of mine has a cousin named Dina, and she pronounce it "DInna" and not "DIIna" as I always thought it sounded like. Well, I was wrong.

Princess Dina is a fictional character from fairy-tale "Královský slib". She was played by Lucie Vondráčková.

I find it bland, boring, and unimaginative, but it's not a horrible name. ''DEE-na'' sounds better, as ''DIE-na'' brings dinosaurs to mind.
-- slight night shiver  5/21/2008
I've always heard it pronounced Dee-na, not Die-na. I prefer it pronounced the first way too.

I have a cousin named Dina, she is 13. I don't know any other Dina's, and never have. Even when I was younger I thought this was a weird name, but still none the less ok. :)

Dina is also used as a feminine name in Egypt. A famous American actress with this name is Dina Meyer. As a woman's name, I regard it as a nice, refined name.

Dina is often short for names ending with Tina, even though it makes more sense just to use Tina.

This name is also found in Italian, where it is either a feminine form of Dino or directly from the Biblical character Dinah.

It doesn't sound very pretty, but its unique! :)

Why must the English language butcher every Biblical Hebrew name with its Anglicized long vowels? DEE-na sounds MUCH better than DIE-na.
