Other Origin(s):Italian
Meaning:Beautiful; Serpent; Soft or tender
Belinda, a girl's name with Italian roots, combines a fantastical meaning with a noble sound. It might come from the word bella, for beautiful, with the suffix -inda. The second half might also come from the German word lind, which means "serpent" or "dragon," adding a touch of danger to the other proper name. There's also a German term linde, which means "soft" or "tender," which is an altogether much gentler feel for your precious little one.
