Origin of salina

  • Spanish from Latin salīnae salt pits from feminine pl. of salīnus of salt saline

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Of uncertain origin, possibly a variant of, or a coinage inspired by, Selina. The place name Salina (a salt marsh) seems an unlikely source.
