A name added to the proper names of different deities mentioned in writings of the Jesuit Joannis Stribingius alias Jochann Stribing in 1606. The word itself appears to be derived from Latvian diminutive from "dievs" - 'god', namely dievini, "dievins", so it can be understood as meaning a minor deity.
