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

  

LINDA.  If from Spanish lindo/linda, this name means "pretty"; if Germanic, it means "serpent."  Usage: America, England, Estonia, Finland, Holland, Ireland, Russia (Линда), Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland.

    Lind is another term for a serpent.  The German dragons are always called lindwurmer, and the word is, in fact, the same as that which we still use as lithe, expressing supple grace; the adjective linths becoming, on the one side lind, on the other lithe.  The Spaniards use lindo, linda, for pretty, with about the same difference of sense, in the masculine or feminine, as we do when we speak of a pretty woman, or a pretty man. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
