To me, this name seems too long and pretentious to be used by a little girl. And people might shorten it to 'Candy', which I find atrocious. Bleh. I like the 'Del' part of the name, but the rest I dislike.

This name sounds like a disease to me. She had a bad case of Candelaria. UGH!

Candelaria also is a name derived from the Native American 'Spanish' Indians. Apache tribe, Comanche band in the Mexico and Arizona areas. Candelaria was the name used to describe the wax that was extracted from cactus. Which was used to make candles and other wax items. Candelaria is a more a luminescent than an outright light. Like the warm glow of candle light apposed to the stark light of something fluorescent. Not just a quiet beckon which means help and support Candelaria is a wax that is pliable and able to conform to the needs of it's creator. A flexible, tolerant giving name for a matterial which serves a variety of purposes even to this day.

What a gorgeous name! I can just picture this dark-eyed beauty with lips the color of wine and a rose in her hair. It is just so elegant, and it sounds like the name of a devout Catholic, since it means Candlemas. All in all, a wonderful name.

This can be a surname, as it was the maiden name of my grandmother. It doesn't sound right as a first name to me, it sounds too elaborate.

This is a beautiful, refreshing name, very unique. Although Spanish is not as melodic as the similar sounding Italian, it could still be used in either language.
