"Rina" could be an abbreviation of the Bulgarian name "Zaharina" (the stress - on the "i"), coming from the word "zahar" (the stress - on the first "a"), which means "sugar" as a noun in Bulgarian. It could also be an abbreviation of the Bulgarian name "Zarina" (the stress - on the "i"), which is a derivative of "Zara".
