Meaning of the baby name MOINA.
Scottish Celtic name meaning "soft." (History of
Christian Names, Yonge, 1884). Also spelled Moyna.
Usage: America, England, Scotland.
Moina Mathers (d. 1928), was wife of English occultist
Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers. Moina Michael (d. 1944), was an
American humanitarian and professor. (Wiki)
son of Thaddu and brother of Morna (Fingal's mother), married Moina,
daughter of Reuthamir (the principal man of Balclutha, on the
Clyde). It so happened that Moina was beloved by a Briton named
Reuda, who came with an army to carry her off. Reuda was slain by
Clessammor; but Clessammor, being closely pressed by the Britons, fled,
and never again saw his bride. In due time a son was born, called
Carthon; but the mother died. While Carthon was still an infant,
Final's father attacked Balclutha, and slew Reuthama (Carthon's
grandfather). When the boy grew to manhood, he determined on
vengeance; accordingly he invaded Morven, the kingdom of Fingal, where
Clessammor, not knowing who he was, engaged him in single combat, and
slew him. When he discovered that it was his son, three days he
mourned for him, and on the fourth he died.—Ossian: Carthon. (The
Reader's Handbook of Famous Names in Fiction, &c., Brewer, 1899)
