From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Hind
     Heb. 'ayalah (2 Sam. 22:34; Ps. 18:33, etc.) and 'ayeleth (Ps.
     22, title), the female of the hart or stag. It is referred to as
     an emblem of activity (Gen. 49:21), gentleness (Prov. 5:19),
     feminine modesty (Cant. 2:7; 3:5), earnest longing (Ps. 42:1),
     timidity (Ps. 29:9). In the title of Ps. 22, the word probably
     refers to some tune bearing that name.
