Adina is a really beautiful name for a girl. It sounds really feminine and attractive for a girl in my opinion. I might use this as a middle name for a girl if she has a really manly first name. I don’t think Adina suits boys at all! It’s not even remotely masculine.
I don’t understand why this name is labeled unisex. The second form is labeled FEMININE so the first version that’s labeled MASCULINE & FEMININE was a typo. I’ve seen that with names on this website. I’ve seen Rohan labeled FEMININE, when the first version was labeled MASCULINE.

Well, Adina is absolutely a feminine name to me and I love it for a girl. I think it’s awful for a boy. It doesn’t sound masculine at all. Probably because it’s pronounced a-deena but not a-diena which is a little more masculine. I also think Constantine and Carmine sound feminine unless pronounced with a “ien” and not a “een”.

This name has two spelling variants in Hebrew: one, masculine, from a proper name in the Hebrew Bible, and one, feminine, based on a Hebrew adjective (which also in found in the Hebrew Bible).

The masculine Adina is spelled in Hebrew as עדינא, and is the name of a soldier found in 1 Chronicles 11:42. The spelling (with the final aleph) suggests an Aramaic, rather than a Hebrew, origin.

The feminine name in Hebrew is spelled עדינה. This Adina means "noble," "delicate," or "refined." It is a modern Hebrew name, but the word itself can be found in Isaiah 47:8.
