CarineI read it in a book. Also spelt Careen, like in Gone With the Wind. It has old fashioned roots, but is still fresh sounding.
Carine is most likely a modern name, an elaboration of Cara, a blend of Karen + Colleen or other similar names. Or else it may represent a shortening of Carina. As an English vocabulary word, "careen" means to sway or lurch wildly out of control.
