Unusual name

I am constantly asked where my name originated.  My parents heard it when they went to a play at church as it was given to the name of Simon Peter’s mother.  However, when they saw the Vicar about the christening he tried to put them off!

It is a man’s name in the Bible, “Captain of the Reubenites”  (Chronicles Chapter 11 v 42)

I believe it is more common in Romania?

When I was about 4, I was very shy and never corrected my Sunday School teacher so she called me Edwina for 2 years!

In my teens I was called Dina so this is what some friends still call me!

Has anyone else an interesting unusual Christian name?
