Trina Vega is the older sister of Tori Vega from Victorious. I personally hate that girl.

My mom was pulling for the name Katrina, but my dad said it sounded too similar to the noise he makes when he sneezes. They settled on "Trina" instead. =)

Trina to me sounds like the name of a very snobby teenage girl. I much prefer Katrina.

I was born in 1968 and was given the name Trina not short for anything. I always get asked, but nope it's just Trina.

My name is Trina, though my grandmother was adamant in using the spelling 'Trena'. Both would be pronounced as "TREE-nah". I always used the definition of the name that came from Katrina = "Purity", but I've seen a Hindu definition of it that means "Piercing Grass".

Character in the musical Falsettos. Trina is a Jewish housewife whose husband leaves her for another man. Pronounces it TrIHna (close to TrEna) and not Treena.

Trina (also variantly spelled as Triena) is also used in Dutch and Limburgish, where it is a short form of Catharina and Katharina. It is pronounced as 'TREE-nah' in both languages.

- (in Dutch)
- see page 2 of "Limburgse Veurname", a PDF-file containing Limburgish names, which is located at (in Limburgish)

It has always been a rare name officially (as short names and nicknames have traditionally rarely been registered as official names in the Netherlands; people have always registered their children by their full names), but not at all informally, at least for people born before the 1970s. After that, the name Catharina decreased in popularity (as did Katharina) and so did its short form Trina. As a result, Trina is now considered a rather old-fashioned name. (Young) Dutch women named Catharina or Katharina today will go by a different and more fashionable short form of the name, such as Cato and Keet.

I love this as a nickname for Katrina/Catrina.

This is an occasional nick-name for me as my given name is Catriona and I used to hate it when some people called me Trina but now I really love it and wish people called me it more often as this is such a good name! (for nick-name purposes) If this was used for a given name it would seem odd. But nice.

I like the soud of the name Trina but every time I hear it I think of my friend's annoying little sister. She is named Katriona and goes by it shortened to Triona, but still pronounced Tree-nah.

This is a really pretty name.

Beautiful name for a little princess!

I think the name Trina is very beautiful. For a little girl I picture like a pretty little ballerina. That's what I think of when I think of a little girl named Trina. I believe I may name my future daughter this.

I know a Katrina who goes by Trina and the name suits her very well. It makes her seem sophisticated and feminine.
indigopearl  8/13/2006
My name is Trina. It's not short for anything just Trina. I don't know where my mother got the idea for my name but I wouldn't change it for the world. I love my name and I have only ever heard of one other person with the name Trina.

Trina is the name of a character in the film Cabin Boy.

My real name is Latrina and I did not see it on the list and I once had a student that spelled my name Triana, which I thought was beautiful.
mocha  9/24/2005
My first name is also LaTrina. I also didn't see that name on the list. I knew another Latrina in high school, but she spelled her name: Latrena.
