The name Dina is also a Slavic name. It comes from the Slavic word for God (Gospod), from which the words Mr (Gospodin) and Mrs (Gospodina) come from. That's where Dina comes from. The namesday is on the 26 December.

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.

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

My name is Dina. I really like this name even if some people say I spell it wrong and I'm suppose to spell it Dena. It's a short and unique name. I'm arab and lots of Arabs have this name as well so this name doesn't have to be a Hebrew name only- it can be many language names. From all the sites I've checked they all said that the name means judged but others here have different thoughts so I really don't know what the actual meaning of my name is. Also, in Arabic it is written like this: دينا.

My name is Dina. I was informed it was Scandinavian, which is where my family is from. You can see it in the word scan-Dina-vian. The particular meanings behind the word are varied.
