Meaning & History

Medieval Basque name, documented in Navarre. It has been speculated to be derived from Greek ἐνηδύνω (enedýno) meaning "to be courteous; to be obliging; to cheer, to gratify". This was the name of an early Christian saint from Sardinia, known as Henedina in Latin; she was martyred with Saints Justa and Justina. According to Basque folklore, this name belonged to the most beautiful girl in all of the Basque countries.
