Kalyna has great significance in Ukrainian folklore and has come to symbolize Ukraine itself. It has been seen also as representing a young and beautiful maiden, and her innocence. Young women used to plant the Kalyna on the grave of Cossack warriors fallen in battle.

"Kalynka" is often used as a diminutive of Kalyna.

It is very uncommon name, hardly ever used in Ukraine despite the fact than Kalyna (Viburnum opulus) actually is symbol of country.
