Saina (Saïna, Sayena,Sayna) is a female name which originated from Iran. It is also found in Greece .

Simorgh, being a mythological creature, is mostly in shape of a bird who descended to earth from heaven, is a symbol for all that is good and pure, making the name a representation of everything that is heavenly. Women with this name are often referred to as having a heavenly behaviour and are interested in philosophy and public welfare.
