Darina is a feminine name of Persian and Greek origins, derived from Darius, meaning “one who maintains the well” and “to possess.” A form of Darin, the simple addition of an “a” makes Darina a vivacious title that dances from the lips. Beloved in Slavic languages, Darina may also come from the Slavic root dar, meaning “gift,” found in Bulgarian, Slovak, Ukrainian, Czech, and Slovenian-speaking communities. Bulgarian pop singer Darina Yotova, known simply as Dara, rose to stardom for reaching the final of the Bulgarian production of The X Factor. Bright and poetic, Darina is a beautiful reminder of just how much baby means to you.
