    CYNTHIA (Lat., from Gk. Κυνθἰα, Kynthia).  A surname of Diana (q.v.), from her birthplace, Mount Cynthus, on the island of Delos; and hence a poetic term for the moon.  Queen Elizabeth is referred to under this name in Spenser's Colin Clout's Come Home Again, in Fletcher's Purple Island, and in Raleigh's poem "Cynthia."
