Other Origin(s):Arabic
Yonina trips off the tongue as a girl’s name with Hebrew and Arabic origins. Carrying the same root as the biblical Jonah, Yonina derives from Yônā and Yonah with the delicate meaning of “dove.” Not to be underestimated for the tiny creatures they are, doves have proven to be as resilient as they are beautiful. In the story of Noah’s Ark, a dove is sent forth to see if the floodwaters are subsiding. Valiant in its effort, the dove triumphantly returns with an olive branch, promising peace and inspiring hope. Like that brave little dove, baby Yonina will one day boldly venture into a world of possibilities where their soul can flourish.
