(Russian) short form of Zinaida (from Greek Zēnais, a derivative of the name of the god Zeus), the name of an obscure saint venerated in the Eastern Church. It is also a Russian short form of the rarer given name Zinovia (from Greek Zēnobia, a compound of Zeus + bios ‘life’). Its adoption as a given name in the English-speaking world probably owes something to its resemblance to the popular girl's name Tina.
English (especially Yorkshire) and Scottish: occupational name for a fuller, Middle English walkere, Old English wealcere, an agent derivative of wealcan ‘to walk, tread’. This was the regular term for the occupation during the Middle Ages in western and northern England. Compare Fuller and Tucker. As a Scottish surname it has also been used as a translation of Gaelic Mac an Fhucadair ‘son of the fuller’.
