I've also heard this name pronounced DEE-nuh.

Actually, if you read the Hebrew, it's pronounced DEE-nah.

According to the original Hebrew, the name is actually pronounced DEE-nah, making the name "Deena" a nice alternative to this name.

This name can also be pronounced DEE-nə (also, I'm not positive, but I believe DEE-nə is the Biblically accurate pronunciation).

I am Jewish and this name (usually rendered "Dinah") is pronounced DEE-nə (Dee-nuh), which is also the Biblically accurate pronunciation-- not DIE-nuh. It derives from the legal court system (Beit Din:בית דין‎, "house of judgment"; which is a rabbinical court of Judaism.)

My name is Dina and the correct way to pronounce it is Dee-nah NOT Die-na. But I understand some prefer to be called Die-na instead. But the biblical pronunciation is DEE-NAH.
