Origin of the name ADELINDA.
Etymology of the name ADELINDA.
Meaning of the baby name ADELINDA.

  

ADELINDA.  Italian and Spanish.  Probably a compound of Ada- (Latinized A.S. Eed) "rich," and -Linda, "pretty."  Also spelled Adalinda.  Compare with A.S. Æthelind.

    We remember, though very hazily indeed, that years ago, a romance of the above name ("The Five Nights of St. Albans"), exercised a most awful power over our young imagination.  The effect, if we remember right, was in a great measure produced by the mysterious lighting up of the old Abbey, night after night of the "five" which were the subjects of the tale... Young Dindamont is devotedly attached to Adelinda; has courage, constancy, &c.—everything but money.  Adelinda's parent, Sixanaito (of noble Italian origin), is an electioneering solicitor, who sternly forbids the union.  Lovers are in despair.  Dindamont soliloquising near the Abbey, and, being told to "move on," suddenly observes strange lights in a house.  Lover enters; is knocked down and hustled out.  Grief of Adelinda.  This would occupy one night.  The second night arrives.  Dindamont steals off to watch the strange house again... (Punch Magazine, v.21, 1851).
