User comments for Linda (Meaning / History Only)

Though Linda means "beautiful" in Spanish, the name is not associated with beauty in non-speaking Spanish countries.

"Linda" could be also a short form of "Rosalinda".

"Linda" could be a short form of "Belinda" or "Melinda" too.

Linda actually means contiguous in Spanish.

Linda doesn't mean contiguous in Spanish. That'd be "linde".

Despite the association with the Spanish 'Linda' meaning beautiful, it's origin is almost certainly Germanic instead.

Linda or linden is another name for lime tree. In Berlin there is a famous street called Unter den Linden (under the limes).

It's nice to believe that every girl's name means "beautiful", but there's nothing wrong with it being a tree.

I read a long time ago that in Old English -- which I might add is a totally different language than our English, King James's English is considered modern English -- that Linda meant lime tree.

Actually, Linda does not mean "Beautiful" in Spanish, it simply means, "Pretty."

Linda (spelt just like that) is found in several Bantu speaking groups in east, south east and southern Africa. It means "wait".
