"My parents gave me the most popular girl's name of my birth year (as well as many years afterward). I swore I would not do this to my own daughter. I also love Old Testament names, but of course wanted to avoid those (like Sarah) that were overused. Hence, Dinah, a name I and my daughter love!" Jun. 1, 2020:
"My name is Dinah, and I love it!It does get mispronounced quite often and spelled wrong but I think it's a beautiful name." Mar. 12, 2020:
"named my daughter Dinah in 2001 and yes everyone calls her dena but I love that she has an ancient name that isn't shared by millions of others! People remember her. The first Dinah i ever met was a super cool, smart, feisty girl who was my college roommate's sister, so the name always had those connotations to me" Jun. 24, 2019:

"Love it. Have only met one or two other Dinah's in my life and really feel territorial about it. I like having a unique name. It definitely gets butchered in spelling and mispronounced all the time, but I still love it." Oct. 15, 2008:
"Cool name! Unusual. A character from George Eliot's Adam Bede, Dinah was a woman who preached her spiritual convictions despite social ostratization, and who eventually won the heart of the book's eponymous hero through her honor, purity, and heart. I've considered this for my daughter, though there'd always be "some one in the kitchen with [her]" according to "I've Been Working on the Railroad."" Jan. 8, 2007:
"My name is Dinah and I love it. I like it because i have never met anyone else with my name, but nobody ever pronounces it right. And most people spell Dinah with out the h or spell it Dyna. But other than that, i think my name is pretty cool." Sep. 18, 2006:

"Wow!!! My name is Dinah too!! Its so cool to know there are so many of us!! I love my name! Hope one of my kids name their daughter after me!!! And yes, it's ALWAYS mispronounced!!!" Jun. 15, 2019:
"Avoid this name if your surname's Pink, Black, or even Mann. The reason? Because of the 1983 Super Sentai installment in Japan called Kagaku Sentai (i.e. Scientific Squadron) Dynaman. One of the four male members is Ryuu Hoshikawa (aka Dyna Black) and the only female in the team is Rei Tachibana (aka Dyna Pink). Not to mention that six episodes of the show were taken and dubbed into English and aired as a gag parody (under the title "Dynaman") on the USA Network Channel Night Flight. And that was before even Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (translated into English from Japanese as "Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers"; "zyu" is a pun on "juu", beast in Japanese), let alone Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!"

"nice name and not used that much. Needs to make a comeback" Aug. 6, 2017:
"My name is Dinah but everybody mispronounces it all the time!" Jul. 11, 2015:
"Former Beatle George Harrison and his second wife, Olivia Arias, gave their son an anagram of this name when he was born in 1978. They named him Dhani (which is pronounced like 'Danny')." Nov. 26, 2010:
"Don't name your daughter this if your surname is Black, for in a Power Rangers-like show in Japan in 1983 called 'Kagaku Sentai Dynaman' (Scientific Squadron Dynaman), from which six episodes were later taken and made into a parody on 'Night Flight' and simply entitled 'Dynaman', the five heroes of that program consisted of only one woman, Rei Tachibana/DynaPink (Slojin in the parody), among four men - Hokuto Dan/DynaRed (Wooshi in the parody), Ryuu Hoshikawa/DynaBlack (Huba in the parody), Yousuke Shima/DynaBlue (Franky in the parody), and Kousaku Nangou/DynaYellow (Cowboy in the parody)."
