In English the name Nina means Favor and Grace. It has many different meanings from country to country across the world as it is a more common name than elsewhere in the world. For example:

- In Spanish, the name Nina means little girl, or great granddaughter
- In Hebrew, the name Nina means beautiful or pretty eyes
- In Russia, the name Nina came from the Assyrian founder
- In American English, the name Nina means all mighty

There are many variations of the name Nina. It is suggested that Nina is a variant of the names Ann, Anne, Anna and Hannah; this is true of a number of countries in which it is commonly used. Spelling variants include Nena, Neina, Neenah, Neana, Ninah and Neena amongst many others.

The name Nina is an internationally used name although it very rarely, if ever, enters the list of top baby names in the UK. In other countries, on the other hand, the name Nina frequently makes an appearance in the top 100 names.  Countries where the name is very popular include Austria, Spain, Germany, Russia and the US. Although not as popular in the UK, Nina has a very beautiful meaning in the UK and is well known and easily understood.
