For the delicate cherub whose love is profound, short and sweet Dena lends a beautiful appellation. A name with many possible origins, Dena is likely a form of the Hebrew Adina, meaning “delicate,” or Dinah, meaning “judged.” Inspired by biblical classics, Dena is a worthy name for those seeking to welcome baby to their faith without setting their identity in stone. Dena is also considered a form of Dean, an Old English name that means “valley.” If you thought Dena’s roots ended there, this charming title might derive from the Latin Diana, meaning “divine.” With many origins and meanings to choose from, baby Dena can pick their favorite endearment and carry it with pride.
