Meaning & History

Means "the one to follow", cognate of malippaa ("to follow someone") and the suffix -na (denotes a personal name). In Greenlandic mythology Malîna is the goddess of the sun and the sister of Anningan, god of the moon. She and her brother lived together until one day they had a fight. Malîna smeared black grease on her brother's face, then ran as far as she could into the sky and became the sun.
