Meaning:From Mount Kynthos
Cinzia is a girl’s name of Greek and Italian origin. It’s the Italian version of the Greek name Kynthía, anglicized as Cynthia, which means “from Mount Kynthos.” Cynthia was another name for the Greek goddess Artemis, who was said to have been born on Mount Kynthos on the island of Delos. This name was also sometimes used for the Greek moon goddess, Selene, and the Roman goddess of the moon and the hunt, Diana. A popular name in the US since the 1880s, Cynthia ranked among the top 10 most-used names between 1956 and 1963. However, it has since declined in popularity. If you’re looking for a more unusual variant of Cynthia, why not choose the equally pretty Cinzia? It adds a touch of Italian flair to this classic Greek name.
