If you have room in your portfolio for some ASX 200 dividend shares, then it could be worth checking out the two named below.

They have been named as buys and tipped to provide attractive dividend yields. Here's what you need to know:

Aurizon Holdings Ltd (ASX: AZJ)

The first ASX 200 dividend share that has been named as a buy is Aurizon. It is Australia's largest rail freight operator.

Ord Minnett sees a lot of value in its shares at current levels. In response to its half-year results last month, the broker put an accumulate rating and $4.70 price target on its shares.

As for dividends, the broker is forecasting partially franked dividends of 17.8 cents per share in FY 2024 and then 24.3 cents per share in FY 2025. Based on the latest Aurizon share price of $3.91, this will mean yields of 4.5% and 6.2%, respectively.

Orora Ltd (ASX: ORA)

Goldman Sachs thinks that this packaging company could be an ASX 200 dividend share to buy.

The broker has a buy rating and $3.40 price target on its shares.

As well as decent upside, Goldman expects attractive yields from Orora's shares. The broker has pencilled in dividends per share of 13 cents in FY 2024 and 14 cents in FY 2025. Based on the current Orora share price of $2.65, this will mean yields of 4.9% and 5.3%, respectively.

Stockland Corporation Ltd (ASX: SGP)

Another ASX 200 dividend share that could be a buy is Stockland.

Stockland is a leading residential developer with a focus on delivering a range of masterplanned communities and medium density housing in growth areas across the country.

Citi is positive on the company and has a buy rating and $5.00 price target on its shares.

In respect to income, Citi is expecting dividends per share of 26.2 cents in FY 2024 and 26.6 cents in FY 2025. Based on the current Stockland share price of $4.60, this will mean yields of 5.7% and 5.8% yields, respectively.
