I love both but obviously using one will rule out the other.

You might as well settle on Nina, which is a lovely name anyway, because if you go for Mina lots of people will mishear, misspell it as Nina.


You could split the difference and call her Ina.........

Nina for me.

But prefer it as a nickname for Antonina/Antonia etc

I also just think of the word meaner. It’s a nice name otherwise but I think this ruins it. It’s like the name/s Fia, Fiadh, Phia etc.. it sounds like fear. It looks like a nice name but that ruins it.

I prefer Nina.

Is Mina pronounced “meaner”? If it’s a short i sound the spelling Minna would be clearer.

I love Mina. I knew a lovely Meena a few years ago.

Nina is OK but I've met a few and they have all been rather bitchy tbh so that has put me off

Nina is a beautiful name.

Mina makes me think of Minnie as slang for vagina 😬 sorry! Although I wouldn't think that if the child was of Indian background actually.

So, maybe it depends on your family background.

I actually know twins called Meena and Neena so using one doesn't have to rule out the other!
