Does anyone else think of Glenda, the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz? :)

No her name is Glinda. Not Glenda, although I'm sure this is where he got his name. Of course there's always Galinda. Hehe.

It's true that in the Wizard of Oz it was Glinda, but 1) I can't find it here and 2) If you pronounce it the difference is very small. Sorry for my English:)

The only Glenda I've ever known was named after her father, Glen. I don't like this name much, because it reminds me of the famously awful movie about cross-dressing by the famously awful director Ed Wood called "Glen or Glenda?"

I like the meaning, but the way the name sounds isn't exactly pleasing to my ear.

The name means pure, clean and good. How could someone say it was ugly and outdated? I happen to like my name, and you would to if you knew me. See, people associate a name with the last person they knew with the name.

I actually think that this is really cute and the meaning is lovely! I hope it will make a comeback.
