Etymology & Historical Origin - Reyna
Reyna is an alternate modernized spelling of “reina” which is the Spanish vocabulary word for “queen”. Usage of Reyna and Reina is similar to the Latin Regina which also means “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!
