Polina is a feminine name with Latin, Greek, and Russian origins. A variant of Paulina, this name translates to “little,” and makes for an adorable name for your little bundle of joy.

It also comes from the Greek name Apollinaris, which relates to the Greek god Apollo. In Greek mythology, Apollo represented so many things, from archery to music and dance, to the Sun itself.
