Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יוֹנָה f. pl. יוֹנִים

(1)  a dove, Genesis 8:8, seq. יוֹנָתִי my dove, a gentle term of endearment, Song of Solomon 2:14, 5:2 6:9 1:15, עֵינַנִיךְ יוֹנִים “thy eyes (are) doves,” i.e. like to doves’ eyes. Song of Solomon 4:1. בְּנֵי יוֹנָה young doves, Leviticus 5:7. (As to the etymology I give no opinion. [In Thes. “a libidinis ardore quæ in proverbium abiit ira dictam censeo.”] Some derive it from ونى to be weak, gentle, and thus it would properly be, feeble and gentle bird.

(2) [Jonah], pr.n. of a prophet, Jonah 1:1; 2 Kings 14:25.-Another יוֹנָה see under יָנָה.
