What does the name Kalina mean?

The meaning of the name “Kalina” is: “Rowan tree”.

Additional information: The name actually originates from Bulgarian old language (PraBulgarian or Proto Bulgarian) where the word is speculated to mean "red" thus the name of the tree because of it's red fruits. PraBulgarian is a very old language and today it has mixed with the Slavic one creating Bulgarian. Besides Russia has been influenced by Bulgaria since the cirilic was actually created in Bulgaria and then spread towards other countries therefor the belief that the name Originates from PraBulgarian seems to be very plausible.
