dont worry your question wasnt ignorant
i mean I was walking down my street this one
day and all these spanish men kept on calling me
gochina and they all stared and waved and smiled
at me and whistled. I thought it was a compliment and
waved back and interacted with them. until I went to
school and learned about "Bayos des Gochino)
which is also The Bay of Pigs. I was angry
but a few days later laughed it off.
anywhoo yeah sorry about my
little story. that is the def. of

It means 'young girl' literally translated. It can also be used flirtatiously however this is rare. 'Nino' means boy, referring to a boy in a parental or authoritative way for comparison.
Nina is short for madrina and if it was Niña it means girl.

if you mean niña, to spanish speaking people it means little girl. If he calls you like that it's like a cute name to tell you, he cares about you and maybe wants something more than just friends...
pronounced nin-ya...means little girl
Nina = girl. Nino = boy.
Does he pronounce it neenah or neenyah?
If it's the first, it's just a nickname. If it's the second, it means girl :)
I couldn't help but answer this even though it was asked forever ago. Especially if it's a romantic friend or a friend who is protective over you maybe, it's possible he's called you Nena (Nay-Nuh), which is like saying Baby - not like an infant but it's an affectionate term rather than "niña" which is more like saying 'hey girl.' The other answers are probably what you were looking for but thought I might bring it up.
It's either ninya (neen-ya) or nena (ne-na). Ninya, means girl. Nena also means girl, kinda like saying chick.
