n. (DEY nuh)

1. feminine name, not popular in America until c.1925, in the top 100 girls' names from c.1963-1984.

2. unisex given name.

3. A young woman with passion and drive, who cares about other people and puts her time into charities (such as the Special Olympics). These characteristics at first earns her respect and popularity, however, eventually her knack for manipulation (or some other undesirable quality) causes uncalled-for insults involving her virginity and whether or not she's a druggie or alcoholic. Despite this, she still treats those around her with politeness, if not kindness.

4. Drug and Alcohol Nursing Association.
