Origin and Meaning

1) Irish name, Anglicised form of Eithne [1]

2) From the name of the Italian volcano [2], which probably derives its name from Phoenician attuna = 'furnace', rather than Greek aitho = 'I burn', despite the similarity of sense [3]

3) Finnish variant form of Edna [4]

4) From Hebrew meaning 'for rent' (??) [2]
