RAINA.  Chamorro name derived from the vocabulary word ráina, meaning "queen." 

un ráina, a queen. (Dictionary & Grammar of the Chamorro Language, Preissig, 1918)

Originally there was no indefinite article in Chamorro.  In the modern vernacular in places where it would be used in English the Spanish un takes its place.  This word is invariable and is used with both masculine and feminine nouns:  un lahe, a man; un palaoan, a woman; un patgon, a child; un raina, a queen. (American Anthropologist, A.A.A., 1903)
