This name also hails from François Marie Arouet de Voltaire's satirical novella "Candide\". Based on the word Candid, meaning "Open, Sincere, Straightforward, Honest, or Informal", as a nod to the title character's naivety and outspoken nature.

The name of the satirical novel Candide, ou l'Optimisme (Candide: or, Optimism) by Voltaire. The protagonist bears the name Candide.

Having read this book in high school, I do not remember much other than this:
The story contains an old woman with one buttock - who cut off said missing buttock to feed someone. At some point, she apparently dies, only to return in a later chapter.
