Etymology & Historical Origin - Reina
Reina is the Spanish word for “queen”. Usage of Reina as a female given name is similar to usage of Regina (Latin word for “queen”) or the Celtic-Welsh Rhiannon (Rihanna) meaning “great queen”. These are all subtle yet celebratory ways to give your daughter a regal name. The words “queen” and “reina” developed from two different language families. The Spanish “reina” is derived from the Latin “regina” which developed as a feminine form of “rex” (Latin for king). These are both rooted in the Latin “regere” (“to rule”). On the other hand, the word “queen” comes from the Germanic branch, derived from the Olde English "cwēn, cwene" which was the common word for “woman”. Today we would all agree that the words Reina and Queen now mean the same thing: that is, a woman in power and one who rules!
Popularity of the Name Reina
Reina has never been a particularly popular name in the United States. It first appeared on the charts in 1993 and recently disappeared in 2011 (although Regina remains in circulation). Other phonetically alters forms of Reina still stand on the Top 1000 list: Rayna and Reyna. But Reina, not so much. Aside from Reina’s Spanish connection to the word “queen”, Reina is also sometimes considered the Yiddish version of Catherine (from רֵײן) meaning “clean, pure”. Reina is a very pretty name, and the spelling is more classical looking than Rayna or Reyna. We’re actually surprised what little attention she gets for being a “queen”.
