An ancient title once used by queens of Ethiopia, Candace means "clarity." This girl's name has Latin roots but is derived from the Meroitic word Kandake, which was Latinized as Candace. This name was used to refer to the sister of the king of Kush, who would give birth to the next heir thanks to the society's matrilineal structure, making her a queen mother. This name is a subtle way to help your little girl feel like a royal while emphasizing the importance of honesty. Candace can also mean "whiteness," symbolizing the purity and brilliance of your little one.
