Is the name Deena or Deenah an islamic name? On muslim baby name websites, it is listed as meaning "obedience". Also, this transliteration appears as part of words when searching in the Quran, but it is not clear the meaning. Thank you,

There is no Islamic name that sounds like that. Arab baby name websites say it is taken from the Torah and it is the name of the sister of Prophet Yusuf. Farsi sources also say it is the name of Prophet Yusuf's sister and that it also means "judge". I cannot say whether this is a good name to use.
