Re: Chiena? #names

There is a name Chayna pronounced "khayna" that does seem to commonly be paired with the name Chaya.
I would guess that the name is related to the Hebrew word חן "khayn" meaning grace or charm. I'm not sure if this is the same name as what Carol and Helen mentioned since that Chiena seems to have three syllables.
