Adina is the name of a minor figure in the Old Testament, the name of a (male) soldier meaning “slender” written as עֲדִינָא though it’s also used as a Hebrew female name written עֲדִינָה meaning “delicate, gentle, fine”. I’ve also seen it listed as a Romanian feminine name, possibly a short form of Adelina, a variant of Adela, meaning “noble” from Germanic element adal (noble).
