Malinda means "priceless diamond" in Armenia. Or "invaluable diamond" maybe sounds better. =)

In the 19th century Malinda was actually much more common as a spelling than Melinda. The indexes to the 1850 United States census, for example, include 21, 798 examples of Malinda and only 8, 690 of Melinda.

Melinda is pretty and has the obvious "honey" element in its first syllable, but Malinda has a touch of malady and malice about it.
