short form of Zinaida (from Greek Zēnais, a derivative of the name of the god Zeus), the name of an obscure saint venerated in the Eastern Church. It is also a Russian short form of the rarer given name Zinovia (from Greek Zēnobia, a compound of Zeus + bios ‘life’). Its adoption as a given name in the English-speaking world probably owes something to its resemblance to the popular girl's name Tina .
