Does anyone know anything about the origin and name meaning of the surname Adina? I'm Jewish, but no one is left who is alive who remembers where this family immigrated from.

Thank you. I've tried that but I don't seem to get much information out of it. Much of the information has to do with people whose given or first names are Adina - instead of the surname. :(
