Davina(duh-VEE-nuh)- It's one of my names, so I don't know if it's fair for me to choose this, but it's my favourite, it's been passed down in my family for generations, and it's what I plan to name my daughter... it's Scottish (as am I) and means "Beloved". I want to give this name to my daughter because I think it is pretty, I want to follow my family's tradition, I want her to know of her Scottish heritage, and I want her to know that she really is Beloved to me.
This feminine form of the name David originated in Scotland. Many feminine forms of male names were created this way in Scotland, such as Donaldina, Jamesina etc.
