The Squirrel

Sheena is most commonly know to be the anglicization of the Scottish Gaelic name Sìne. Sìne is directly related to the English, Jean, a feminine variant of John, meaning ‘God is Gracious’.

Sheena is also thought to be a Hindi name of the same relationship, deriving from John.

There are reports of Sheena also being a Hebrew name which means ‘Gods Gift’.

This name has an enticing quality, and reminds me of names such as Sheva (diminutive of Elisheva), Lucia, Iris and Sasha.

Sheena has some other sweet relations worth a mention: Johanna, Evan, Xoanna, Yanka, Ganix, Ivana, Jane and Jani, are all derived from the humble John.
