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

  

CLARINDA.  An English elaborated form of Latin Clara (q.v.), meaning "brightly fair." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... Clarice was probably intended to mean making famous.  A lady thus named was the wife of Lorenzo de Medici, and France learnt it probably from her, but made the c silent; and England, picking it up by ear, obtained Clarissa, which, when Richardson had so named the heroine of his novel, was re-imported into France as Clarisse.  Clarinda was another invention of the same date. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
