Dinko Ranjina (also Domenico Ragnina) (1536–1607) was a Croatian poet from the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik). In 1556 he was accepted into the Republic's ruling Grand Council. He was married to the sister of Francesco Luccari Burina.
He wrote extensively in Italian (about 30 sonnets) in the collection Rime scelte da diversi eccelenti autori from 1563. Ragnina later stamped in Florence the famous Versione Illirica with Ludovico Dolce. He even wrote the Croatian songbook Pjesni razlike with about 450 small poems (and because of this he is considered a Croatian author of the Croatian literature).
He died in 1607, 71 years old and well esteemed by everybody, after having been "Rector" (knez) of the Ragusa government seven times.
