Beautiful. I adore this name, and it should be considered for every girl.

A very pretty name--but it is very close to my last name, only two letters difference. I prefer this spelling to Corinna--this spelling is a little less flowery.

I always thought this name was a variant of, or related to, names such as Corinna and Korina. I guess not, but they are pronounced almost the same. I wonder why Karina is so popular, whereas Korina/Corinna are almost never used.

It is not true, that Karina is a pet form of Katarzyna. It is a full name. Karina and Katarzyna are different names, and pet forms of Katarzyna are Kasia, Kasiunia etc. [noted -ed]

Karina sounds like a beautiful Russian model to me. I also have a friend named this.

I've always heard that this name {my name} is Latin/Italian, not Polish as it says here. It comes from the Italian adjective carina/carino meaning 'sweet', 'nice', 'pretty', etc, or the Latin word 'caro' - dear.

A very popular name in Latin American countries. I always thought that the name comes from "cariños" or "cariñosa".

I didn't know this name's origin was European. Every girl I know who has this name is Hispanic.

As posted before the use of the name KARINA is well established in India. Does anyone know what Karina means in Sanskrit?

The name Karina is as well related to the Persian world and has roots in the most ancient culture of Chaldea. In the Persian-Chaldeic tradition it used to be the name for the unseen woman and became later the name Lilith in the Jewish world. The Jewish tradition derived a lot of knowledge from Chaldea as Abraham the "founder or first father" was a Chaldean. According to myth Lilith is the first wife of Adam and departed from Adam when he fell from the tree of life to this earthly paradise she refused to go with him and hid in the Red Sea. It is said that she would know the name of God which means she remembers God, whilst everyone being to deeply absorbed in timely issues would forget God. And with this forget the true power of the Soul and of Love. Yet she will keep reminding Adam of his heritage. Even if it means through pain. In the Jewish tradition she was later misunderstood as a demon. In the old tradition she stood for the unseen wife, the "first wife" or the soul. She is the one which will always ask for the eternal truth --- never be satisfied with timely gifts only if it is a gift of the heart and won by courage and truth to God.

I like the fact that it could mean 'pretty', 'beloved' or 'dear'!

This is my baby girl's middle name. When we gave her the name it was our thought that she would be named after my mother, and a woman who is a mentor to my husband and I. WE took the KA from my mothers name Kaye, and the RINA from our friends name Corina. At the time we named her we read that Karina meant pure.

The name Karina is a variation of the name Carina, which comes from the latin word "carrus" - love. In other words, Karina means "being loved".

This name's really beautiful. I like Carina and Serena also. These names are so feminine and so lovely in meaning and sound.

As a child I really hated this name, since another girl in my class had it. Now, it's really grown on me and I love it. It's pretty common where I live, but still really nice sounding.

Karina is not just a variant of Katherine. Karina is a Scandanavian name meaning "little one".

A Russian-Australian friend has a daughter named this. It's very pretty, reminding me of an ice skater with long dark hair piled back in a fancy bun and wearing a peacock blue outfit, for some reason. I also like it spelled Carina but to me this lacks the cool wintry feel of the K version and sounds at bit like a make of Toyota car.
